This Week in Spring - November 14th, 2023

Engineering | Josh Long | November 14, 2023 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! It's November 14th, and you know what that means? NINE MORE DAYS until Spring Boot 3.2 drops (on the day of the US holiday of Thanksgiving, no less)!

Some key features include:

  • virtual threads
  • initial CRaC support
  • more sophisticated observability with Micrometerio
  • JdbcClient, RestClient
  • ActiveMQ Testcontainers/ Docker Compose support
  • Kotlin 1.9.0

I can't wait for the next release. I've been playing with it for months. It builds on the strenghts of Spring Boot 3.0 and 3.1. 3.0 brought GraalVM native images, and 3.1 brought Testcontainers and Docker Compose support. This release brings with it Project Loom and CRaC support. It's never been so easy to be so scalable, fast, and productive!

Alright my friends there's a ton to get into this week so let's begin:
