Spring Security 5.1.0.RC2 Released


Spring Data Ingalls SR15 and Kay SR10 released

On behalf of the Spring Data team, I’d like to announce the availability of the Ingalls SR15 and Kay SR10 maintenance releases. Kay SR10 ships on top of the just-released Spring Framework 5.0.9. Spring Boot 2.0.5 is going to pick up Kay SR10 for your convenience. Ingalls SR15 will be picked up by Spring Boot 1.5.16. Both releases ship with mostly bugfixes and a few dependency upgrades.

Ingalls SR15 ships with 40 tickets fixed and Kay SR10 contains 75 issues fixed.

Also, make sure you register for this year’s SpringOne Platform (Sept. 24th-27th, Washington, D.C.) to learn about the latest additions in Spring Data and even get a preview of the features planned for the next release train. The entire team will be on site and happy to answer questions and take feedback.


Spring Vault 2.1 goes RC

On behalf of the community, I’d like to announce the availability of the Spring Vault 2.1 release candidate. Spring Vault 2.1 requires JDK 8 or higher and specifically supports JDK 11 as the next long-term support release. This release ships with 15 tickets fixed along with some refinements for Java 9 to 11. The most notable changes are:

  • Support for Azure authentication with managed service instances on VMs.
  • GCP IAM authentication support on behalf of service accounts.

This release is compatible with Vault versions from 0.5.2 up to 0.11.1.


Spring Framework 5.1 RC3, 5.0.9 and 4.3.19 available now

On behalf of the team, I am pleased to announce Spring Framework 5.1 RC3, 5.0.9 and 4.3.19 are available now.

Spring Framework 5.0.9 includes 36 fixes and selected improvements while Spring Framework 4.3.19 includes 23 fixes and selected improvements. We’re also approaching Spring Framework 5.1 with a third release candidate that includes 30 fixes and improvements.

As usual, those are the base for the upcoming Spring Boot 2.1 M3, 2.0.5 and 1.5.16 releases early next week.

Spring Batch 4.1.0.M3 Released!

We are pleased to announce that Spring Batch 4.1.0.M3 is now available on Github and the Pivotal download repository. What’s new in this milestone? Here is a list of new features and enhancements:

JSR-305 support

The main theme of this milestone is adding support for JSR-305 annotations. We leveraged Spring Framework’s Null-safety annotations and added them where appropriate in all public APIs of Spring Batch.

These annotations will not only enforce null-safety when using Spring Batch APIs, but also can be used by IDEs to provide useful information related to nullability. For example, if a user wants to implement the ItemReader interface, any IDE supporting JSR-305 annotations will generate something like:
