On behalf of the team and everyone that contributed, I am pleased to announce that the release candidate for Spring Boot 2.2.0 is available from our milestone repository. This release contains 130 issues and pull requests.
We plan to make Spring Boot 2.2 generally-available in mid-October. Now is a great time to try out Spring Boot 2.2 and provide feedback so that we can try and fix things before GA. If you want to get started with 2.2 and try out the new features, you can bootstrap a new project on https://start.spring.io.
