Spring Cloud Pipelines 1.0.0.M5 Released

On behalf of the Spring Cloud team it is my pleasure to announce a new milestone release of Spring Cloud Pipelines - 1.0.0.M5.

What’s new?

With 1.0.0.M5 we’ve added a new step in the Build stage called API Compatibility check. Now, your pipeline can break when, as a HTTP / messaging producer, you’re doing a backward incompatible change. We’re checking what were the latest contracts you’ve defined for your most recent production deployment and from those contracts we’re generating tests to your current application.

Also, the one and only Ryan Baxter, has added support for GPG keys in Jenkins.


Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.2.1 released

On behalf of the Spring Cloud Data Flow team, I’m pleased to announce the release of Spring Cloud Data Flow and Spring Cloud Data Flow for Cloud Foundry 1.2.1.RELEASE. This release provides several improvements around OAuth2 authorization.

Here are the relevant links to documentation and getting started guides.

Spring Cloud Data Flow now provides role support for OAuth2, converging with the VIEW, CREATE, MANAGE roles that Data Flow supports when using the traditional security option. Considering the varying use-case requirements across organizations in regards to security roles, the out-of-the-box implementation will assign all the VIEW, CREATE, MANAGE roles to the OAuth authenticated user. However, this can be customized by providing your own AuthoritiesExtractor.

New beta versions of Concourse pipeline and Cloud Foundry manifest editing support released for Visual Studio Code

Back in February 2017 we started to introduce new IDE-agnostic tooling support with our first beta version of the Cloud Foundry manifest editing support. As promised, we continue this journey with an improved version of the Cloud Foundry manifest editing support for Visual Studio Code and brand-new support for editing Concourse task and pipeline definitions - also as an extension to Visual Studio Code. This marks our second step towards implementing tooling in an IDE-agnostic way, adopting the language server protocol from Visual Studio Code.
