Releases | Ryan Baxter | December 22, 2020 | ...

On behalf of the community, I am pleased to announce that the GA release of the Spring Cloud 2020.0 Release Train is available today. The release can be found in Maven Central. You can check out the 2020.0 release notes for more information.

Notable Changes in the 2020.0 Release Train

This release requires Spring Boot 2.4.1. In general, this release was to fix bugs prior to release.

See this page for a list of Known Issues.

See the wiki for a list of all breaking changes in this release train.

See all of the included issues and pull requests at the Github project.

Spring Cloud Commons

NOTE: Bootstrap has been disabled by default. The new way of importing configuration is via the new spring.config.import functionality provided by Spring Boot 2.4. Please see the appropriate documentation for Config Client, Consul, Vault, and Zookeeper for details on how to use them with the new config import.

If you require the legacy bootstrap functionality add the org.springframework.cloud:spring-cloud-starter-bootstrap dependency to your project.
