Dear Spring Community,

I am happy to announce the 4.1.2 release of the Spring Tools 4 for Eclipse, Visual Studio Code, and Atom.

  • (Spring Boot) new: live hover information for bean wirings now supports war-packaged boot apps running in a local server installation

  • (Spring Boot) fixed: navigate to resource in live hovers for apps running on CF works again
  • (Spring Boot) fixed: search for symbols in project now happens on the server side to avoid no project-related symbols showing up on the client side before you start typing in a query

  • (Spring Boot) performance: the language server doesn’t trigger a full source and javadoc download for Maven projects anymore
