This Week in Spring - Spring Boot 3.2 edition - November 21st, 2023

Engineering | Josh Long | November 21, 2023 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another epic installment of This Week in Spring! As amazing as the week's already been, it's all leading up to this Thursday - Thanksgiving day! - when we release Spring Boot 3.2! (and yes, I am very grateful). This release is stuffed to the gills with a ton of new features:

  • reloadable SSL support
  • the new JdbcClient and the new RestClient, from Spring Framework 6.1.
  • Java 21 virtual threads (project Loom)
  • Coordinated Restore at Checkpoint (CRaC)
  • observability improvements
  • a ton of new and updated dependencies, like the newly integrated Spring for Apache Pulsar starter and autoconfiguration, the new Testcontainer support for ActiveMQ, and so much more.

All of this lands in just two days! You know where to go and what to do (

My friends, we've also got a ton of stuff to get into this week, so let's dive right into it.

And finally, for those who celebrate, it's Thanksgiving in the United States this Thursday, the same day as we release Spring Boot 3.2. I know I speak for everyone when I say that I hope you find yourselves healthy, happy and hopeful this Thanksgiving, and that we are grateful - thankful - for you, dear community. Happy Thanksgiving!
