On behalf of the team and everyone that contributed, I am pleased to announce that the third milestone of Spring Boot 2.1 has been released and is available from our milestone repository. This release closes 117 issues and pull requests!
This third milestone aligns with Spring Framework 5.1.RC3.
Highlights in this release include:
- Kafka Streams support
- Support for non-web OAuth applications
- Improved conversion service integration
- Support for logging groups
If you want to get started with 2.1 and try out the new features, you can bootstrap a new project on https://start.spring.io.
We hope to release an M4 just in time for Spring One Platform 2018 and the 2.1 GA towards the end of October.
