Spring Framework 5.2.3, 5.1.13, 5.0.16, and 4.3.26 releases

After unfavorable weather on Maven central caused service disruption much of today, skies have finally cleared up, and I am pleased to announce a full round of Spring Framework releases: the 5.2.3 release on the current production branch, along with maintenance branch releases 5.1.13, 5.0.16, and 4.3.26 with selected backports.

Please note that the 5.0.x and 4.3.x lines have reached the end of active maintenance, with just one final wrap-up release expected on each branch before the official EOL date at the end of this year. The 5.1.x line remains active but will be updated less frequently (~ once a quarter) than the 5.2.x line (~ every six weeks) throughout 2020. For more details, please check the 2020 Roadmap blog post. TL;DR: Please upgrade to 5.2+ at your earliest convenience!
