Spring Cloud Finchley M2 is available

On behalf of the community, I am pleased to announce that the Milestone 2 (M2) of the Spring Cloud Finchley Release Train is available today. The release can be found in Spring Milestone repository. You can check out the Finchley release notes for more information.

Notable Changes in the Finchley Release Train

Spring Boot Starter

The Finchley.M2 release builds on top of the Spring Boot 2.0.0.M3, Spring Framework 5.0.0.RC3, and Project Reactor Bismuth-M3 releases.

Spring Cloud Gateway

The major new feature in the Gateway is WebSocket support (route uri’s with a ws:// scheme) along with a Request Rate Limiter based on Redis, more documentation and a site.

Spring Cloud Commons

Support for using a ‘serviceId’ or logical hostname in the new Spring WebFlux WebClient.

Spring Cloud Task

A Spring Boot 2.0.0 compatible release of Spring Cloud Task has been included for the first time.

Spring Cloud Vault

Autoconfiguration for reactive client access using Spring Vault 2.0.M2 based on Spring WebFlux WebClient. Authentication methods supported by Spring Cloud Vault are adopted via Spring Vault’s authentication flow DSL for reactive authentication. The upgraded dependency also comes with improved support for API validation regarding null values based on Spring’s @NonNullApi and @Nullable annotations.

Future Milestones

The next Finchley Milestone will be built on Spring Boot 2.0.0.M4. Themes for Spring Cloud will include support for the new Actuator framework and reactive support for Sleuth.

The following modules were updated as part of Finchley.M2:
