Releases | Scott Frederick | October 30, 2020 | ...

On behalf of the team and everyone that contributed, I am pleased to announce that the first release candidate of Spring Boot 2.4 has been released and is available from our milestone repository.

This release closes 108 issues and pull requests. Thanks to all those who have contributed with issue reports and pull requests.

Highlights of this release include:

  • Rationalization of configuration properties for Spring MVC servlet and Spring WebFlux reactive stacks,
  • Refinements to the new config file processing, including the ability to load from config trees with a wildcard,
  • Upgrades to the recently released Spring Framework 5.3 and Spring Data 2020.0 release train,
  • Numerous other dependency upgrades,

For a complete list of changes and upgrade instructions, please see the Spring Boot 2.4 Release Notes on the wiki and the updated reference documentation.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances, our current plan is to release 2.4.0 GA on November 12, so please give the RC a try if you can. To bootstrap a new project, you can head over to https://start.spring.io.
