Dear Spring Community,

I am happy to announce the 4.17.0 release of the Spring Tools 4 for Eclipse, Visual Studio Code, and Theia.

major changes to the Spring Tools 4 for Eclipse distribution

early access to new experimental features

Among a number of bug fixes and minor improvements, this release introduces experimental support for:

  • Spring Boot version validations: The IDE will tell you when there is a newer major, minor, or patch version available for your Spring Boot project
  • Spring Boot upgrade support: The tooling will help you upgrading your existing projects to newer Spring Boot versions, including upgrades to newer patch and minor versions, as well as newer major versions (e.g. upgrading to Spring Boot 3)
  • Spring specific validations and refactorings: The tooling will indicate whether something can or should be changed in your source code to keep your Spring project up-to-date with the latest recommendations or advancements in Spring

To learn more about these new experimental features, please take a look at the user guide: https://github.com/spring-projects/sts4/wiki/ And we would like to hear from you.
