Dear Spring community,

As we are preparing for the Spring Framework 6.2 release later this year, it is time to phase out not only the 6.0.x branch but also the 5.3.x line.

A critical piece of infrastructure, the Spring Artifactory instance lies at the heart of the Spring portfolio development work. Since 2013, JFrog, Inc., has generously sponsored the instance for the Spring developer community.
