On behalf of the team and everyone that contributed, I am pleased to announce that the first release candidate of Spring Boot 2.3 is available now from our milestone repository.
This release closes over 70 issues and pull requests. Thanks to all those who have contributed.
Highlights of this milestone include:
- Auto-configuration of a Wavefront sender bean.
- Easier configuration of the data/time converts used by web applications.
- Automatic creation of the
developmentOnlyconfiguration in Gradle.
- Java buildpack support from the newly created Paketo project.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, our current plan is to release 2.3.0 GA on May 14, so please give the RC a try if you can. To bootstrap a new project, you can head over to https://start.spring.io.
