Spring Tools 4.7.1 released

Dear Spring Community,

I am happy to announce the 4.7.1 release of the Spring Tools 4 for Eclipse, Visual Studio Code, and Theia.

Highlights from this release include:

  • (Spring Boot) enhancement: Syntax check for Annotations with Spring Expression Language (#475)
  • (Spring Boot) fixed: hard to reproduce BadLocationException inside of language server fixed now, occurred e.g. in (#451)
  • (Eclipse) new: early access update sites and distribution builds for Eclipse 2020-09 available now (and requires JDK11 to run)
  • (Eclipse) improvement: old Spring Boot launch configs are now “fixed” automatically to exclude test classes again
  • (Eclipse) improvement: new Spring Symbols view now works a lot better when selecting the file scope (also takes selections from package explorer into account)
  • (Eclipse) fixed: STS4 Does Not Start After Installing Papyrus Plugin (#499)
  • (Eclipse) fixed: language server now being shutdown correctly when used by new Spring Symbols view
  • (Eclipse) fixed: it is possible now to install the Spring Tools 4 into an existing Eclipse via the Spring Tools 4 p2 repo only - the main Eclipse update site doesn’t have to be enabled anymore (#497)
