Spring Tools 4.2.1 released

Releases | Martin Lippert | April 18, 2019 | ...

Dear Spring Community,

I am happy to announce the 4.2.1 release of the Spring Tools 4 for Eclipse, Visual Studio Code, and Atom.

Highlights from this release include:

  • (Spring Boot) performance: additional performance and memory footprint improvements to symbol indexing, now eats less memory and is faster while doing the initial indexing run
  • (Spring Boot) new: content-assist for bean types in Spring XML config files
  • (Spring Boot) new: content-assist for property names in Spring XML config files
  • (Spring Boot) new: content-assist for bean references in property definitions in Spring XML config files (very rough early cut, needs a lot more work on proposal content, number of proposals, and sorting)
  • (Eclipse) fixed: empty property values in custom properties not set when launching boot apps (#275)
  • (Eclipse) fixed: content-assist doesn't activate (restart) old language servers anymore

Spring Tools 4.2.2 is scheduled to be released in late May 2019.
