Dear Spring community,
It is my pleasure to announce that our second Spring Framework 5.1 release candidate is available from our milestone repository now.
Spring Framework 5.1 RC2 comes with dependency updates such as the latest Reactor Californium M2, RxJava 2.2, and JUnit 5.3 RC1. It addresses several reported issues on JDK 11 and GraalVM (tracking their release candidates) and provides further refinements within our 5.1 themes, in particular with respect to log output and startup performance.
This is the foundation for the upcoming Spring Boot 2.1 M2 release next week. We’re aiming for a Spring Framework 5.1 RC3 in early September still, picking up Reactor Californium RC1 and wrapping up our JDK 11 efforts, moving on to 5.1 GA in late September.
