Spring Tools 4.2.1 released

Dear Spring Community,

I am happy to announce the 4.2.1 release of the Spring Tools 4 for Eclipse, Visual Studio Code, and Atom.

Highlights from this release include:

  • (Spring Boot) performance: additional performance and memory footprint improvements to symbol indexing, now eats less memory and is faster while doing the initial indexing run
  • (Spring Boot) new: content-assist for bean types in Spring XML config files
  • (Spring Boot) new: content-assist for property names in Spring XML config files
  • (Spring Boot) new: content-assist for bean references in property definitions in Spring XML config files (very rough early cut, needs a lot more work on proposal content, number of proposals, and sorting)
  • (Eclipse) fixed: empty property values in custom properties not set when launching boot apps (#275)
  • (Eclipse) fixed: content-assist doesn’t activate (restart) old language servers anymore

Spring Security 5.2.0.M2 Released

On behalf of the community, I’m pleased to announce the release of Spring Security 5.2.0.M2! This release includes 100+ updates. You can find the highlights below:

OAuth 2.0

gh-6446 - Client Support for PKCE

PKCE isn’t just for native or browser-based apps, but for any time we want to have a public client. Spring Security 5.2 introduces a secure way for backends to authenticate as public clients.

gh-5350 - OpenID Connect RP-Initiated Logout
gh-5465 - Ability to use symmetric keys with JwtDecoder
gh-5397 - Ability for NimbusReactiveJwtDecoder to take a custom processor
gh-6513 & gh-5200 - Support for Resource Server Token Introspection

Resource Server now supports a second OAuth 2.0 token verification strategy: Token Introspection. This is handy when a Resource Server wants to or must verify the token remotely.

With the introduction of AuthenticationManagerResolver, initial support for multi-tenant Resource Servers has arrived.
