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!

Spring for Apache Kafka 2.4 is Available

To support last week’s Apache Kafka 2.4.0 release, I am pleased to announce that the Spring for Apache Kafka 2.4 - 2.4.0.RELEASE - is available in maven central.

This version is essentially functionally equivalent to 2.3.x, but is compiled against the 2.4.0 kafka-clients and supports the new incremental rebalancing protocol.

The 2.4.0 kafka-clients are not binary compatible with Spring for Apache Kafka 2.3 so if you wish to use the 2.4.0 clients, you must upgrade to this version. See the appendix in the reference manual for how to override the jar versions, especially if you are using Spring Boot for dependency management and/or you are using the test embedded Kafka broker.

Spring Cloud Roadmap and Hoxton and Greenwich Maintenance and EOL Announcements

With the recent Spring Framework and Spring Boot maintenance and roadmap posts, the Spring Cloud team is taking the opportunity to provide some insight to our future roadmap as well as the lifetimes of the Greenwich and Hoxton release trains.

Spring Cloud Ilford

We would like to announce our next major release, Spring Cloud Ilford. This will be the first major release since the release of Spring Cloud Finchley, which provided support for Spring Boot 2.x and Spring Framework 5.x. By making Ilford a major release, it will allow us to remove modules that have entered maintenance mode and to complete the simplification of the release train announced earlier this year. It will also allow us to do some API refactoring that may introduce breaking changes.
