Spring Boot 2.5.0-M2 available now

Releases | Phil Webb | February 19, 2021 | ...

Continuing our monthly milestone release cadence, I am pleased to announce that the second milestone of Spring Boot 2.5 has been released and is available from our milestone repository. This release adds a number of new features and bug fixes.

Highlights of this milestone include:

  • Layered WARs support for use with Docker
  • Custom Buildpack Builder Support
  • Jetty 10 Support
  • Early Support for Gradle 7

We've also made some significant behind-the-scenes changes to do with the way that schema.sql and data.sql files are processed. If you use those features, please try the milestone and let us know if you find any issues.

For a complete list of changes and upgrade instructions, please see the Spring Boot 2.5-M2 Release Notes on the wiki and the updated reference documentation.

If you want to get started with 2.5 and try out the new features, you can bootstrap a new project on start.spring.io.
