Spring for Apache Kafka 2.4 Release Candidate

Hot on the heels of the recent Apache Kafka 2.4.0 release, I am pleased to announce the release candidate for Spring for Apache Kafka 2.4 - 2.4.0.RC1 - is available in the Spring milestone repository.

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 and/or the test embedded kafka broker.

Spring Boot 2.1.x EOL November 1st 2020

We’ll keep publishing the occasional maintenance release up until that point, but we recommend that all users consider upgrading to Spring Boot 2.2 as soon as possible. Upgrading to Spring Boot 2.2 from 2.1 should not be too difficult, and upgrade instructions are available on the WIKI.

In order to help track the state of supported releases we’ve also introduced a new “supported versions” WIKI page. You can see at a glance which Spring Boot versions are supported and when they will EOL.

Spring Cloud Data Flow 2.3.0 GA Released

The release 2.3.0 delivers a lot of enhancements and generic compatibility changes for Spring Boot 2.2.x and Spring Cloud Hoxton.

Continuous Deployment For Tasks

As task applications evolve faster to keep up with business needs, the ability for new versions to be consumed via Data Flow in an automated way is needed. While Data Flow has supported the ability to register multiple versions of a task application in previous iterations, the ability to run them in a practical way by re-hydrating command line arguments, deployment properties, and application properties used in previous executions has been missing. In this version, the storage of those values in a manifest and the ability to both retrieve them to determine if an application needs to be upgraded and apply them to the new execution allows for developers to create continuous deployment flows for their task applications. All these capabilities are readily available through RESTful APIs, as well, so the overall CI/CD workflow for Tasks can be automated.
