On behalf of the Spring Data team, I’d like to announce the availability of Ingalls SR7 and Kay RC3 releases. Ingalls SR7 ships with over 40 issues fixed and Kay RC3 with exactly 90 issues fixed. Both are recommended upgrades for all users. Kay RC3 is the final release candidate before our GA at the end of September, i.e. in case you haven’t already, it’s the perfect time to give the new major version a test run.

Spring Framework 5.0 RC4 available now

Dear Spring community,

It is my pleasure to announce that our fourth and last Spring Framework 5.0 release candidate is available now, aligned with Reactor 3.1 RC1 as well as yesterday’s JUnit 5.0 GA, and serving as a foundation for the upcoming Spring Boot 2.0 M4!

Spring Framework 5.0 RC4 also comes with first-class support for the final version of the Servlet 4.0 API, provides fine-tuned integration with Hibernate Validator 6.0 and is up-to-date with Jackson 2.9.1 and Kotlin 1.1.4. Our dependency baseline is therefore almost complete, with just Reactor 3.1 GA and a few JDK 9 related updates (e.g. ASM 6.0) to happen still.
