Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! What a wonderful, bootiful week it's been! This last week saw the long-awaited release of Spring Boot 2.3.0!

There are a lot of wonderful features in this release including, but not limited to, Java 14 support, Docker image generation, graceful shutdown, liveliness probes, upgrades to Spring Data Neumann, and so much more. Here are some resources on some of those features. And, also, check out the blog.

  • R2DBC support (see this Spring Tips installment on using R2DBC
  • Docker container image support. See this blog on Docker image generation
  • Java 14 support. See this Spring Tips installment on Java 14
  • This is also the version to use if you want to consume the Graal Native Image builder feature. Here's a Spring Tips video on that, too.

There are, as usual, a ton of other things worth noting this week, as well, and we've got a huge roundup to get to so let's get to it.
