Spring Cloud Finchley M6 is available

Releases | Spencer Gibb | February 13, 2018 | ...

On behalf of the community, I am pleased to announce that the Milestone 6 (M6) of the Spring Cloud Finchley Release Train is available today. The release can be found in the Spring Milestone repository. You can check out the Finchley release notes for more information.

Notable Changes in the Finchley Release Train

Finchley.M6 is compatible with Spring Boot RC1. Many updates have been made for compatibility with RC1.

Spring Cloud Sleuth

The internals of Spring Cloud Sleuth were rewritten to use Brave. Please see the Migration Guide for more information.

Spring Cloud Gateway

The performance of the gateway has improved dramatically. Fallback support has been added to the Hystrix filter. There is also an update to the Java Route DSL. To add filters, use the new filters() method, as follows:

public RouteLocator customRouteLocator(RouteLocatorBuilder builder, ThrottleGatewayFilterFactory throttle) {
  return builder.routes()
      .route(r -> r.host("**.abc.org").and().path("/image/png")
        .filters(f ->
            f.addResponseHeader("X-TestHeader", "foobar"))

Spring Cloud Netflix

The /hystrix.stream endpoint is now available for Webflux applications.

Spring Cloud Cloudfoundry

Spring Cloud Cloudfoundry has been updated to use the latest Cloud Foundry Java client.

Spring Cloud Contract

You can now define contracts in YAML. We also started publishing Docker images to allow easy polyglot support. Look for a blog post on this soon.

Spring Cloud Aws

Micrometer support for CloudWatch metrics.

Spring Cloud Vault

Reactive session support has been added.
