Spring Data Lovelace RC2 available

Releases | Oliver Drotbohm | August 20, 2018 | ...

On behalf of the Spring Data team, I'd like to announce the availability of the Lovelace RC2 release. This ships in preparation of Spring Boot 2.1 M2 and, of course, our own GA release mid-September. The release ships with 82 tickets fixed. You can find more details in the the updated and curated release wiki.

A pretty late but significant new feature has made it into the release: deferred repository initialization for Spring Data JPA. The feature allows your startup to use Spring Framework's JPA background initialization option more effectively and can significantly cut down startup time. See the previewing example for details.

As we're getting close to the GA release, this is the perfect time to give the release candidates a run by temporarily upgrading your Spring Boot 2.0 application to Lovelace. The easiest way to do so is by setting the spring-data-releasetrain.version property to Lovelace-RC2.

Also, make sure you register for this year's SpringOne Platform (Sept. 24th-27th, Washington, D.C.) to learn about the latest additions in Spring Data and even get a preview of the features planned for the next release train. The entire team will be on site and happy to answer questions and take feedback.
