On behalf of the community, I’m pleased to announce the release of Spring Security 5.5.0-RC1!
In addition to dependency upgrades, bug fixes, and minor enhancements, the release candidate contains a few noteworthy changes:
JWT client authentication support for OAuth 2.0 clients
JWT bearer authorization grant support for OAuth 2.0 clients
AuthorizationManager, a new authorization API for filter security
Kotlin coroutine support for reactive method security

This release candidate is a good opportunity to give feedback before the actual GA release in mid-May. We look forward to hearing from you.
