Dear Spring Community,

I am happy to announce the 4.20.0 release of the Spring Tools 4 for Eclipse, Visual Studio Code, and Theia.

updates to the Spring Tools 4 for Eclipse distribution

important highlights

  • (Spring Boot): 5x-10x faster Java Reconciling support to show Spring specific validations re-built from the ground up tuned for high performance to work seamlessly in large code bases
  • (Eclipse): No more rogue "Boot Language Server" jobs, forever calculating completion proposals and other stuck Java/Spring tooling features

more fixes and improvements

  • (Spring Boot) fixed: Performance of Reconciling Spring Java (#1068)
  • (Spring Boot) fixed: Spring Language Server hangs forever (#1075)
  • (Spring Boot) fixed: Spring Boot Validations Builder hung seemingly forever (#1103)
  • (Spring Boot) fixed: Incorrect MISSING_CONFIGURATION_ANNOTATION warning in vscode (#1100)

Detailed changes can be found in the release notes: https://github.com/spring-projects/sts4/releases/tag/4.20.0.RELEASE
