Spring Data Moore RC2, Lovelace SR10, and Ingalls SR23 released

On behalf of the team, I’m pleased to announce Spring Data releases Moore RC2, Lovelace SR10, and Ingalls SR23. All releases pick up the most recent Spring Framework releases and will be picked up by Spring Boot 2.2 RC1, 2.1.7, and 1.5.22 respectively.

Amongst many dependency upgrades, we migrated almost all of our Spring Data core project to use AssertJ assertions. As per our previous annoucement, Ingalls SR23 is the last release of the Spring Data 1.x line to reach its end of life. We highly recommend migrating to Spring Data Lovelace SR10 for all users who still use Spring Data 1.x.

On behalf of the team and everyone who has contributed, I am pleased to announce that a feature-complete Spring Framework 5.2 release candidate is available from our milestone repository now! Find a comprehensive list of new features and refinements on our wiki: from major core container optimizations to reactive transactions and RSocket support.

We are working towards 5.2 RC2 with fine-tuning and performance improvements in August, preparing for 5.2’s general availability in mid September. We’ll also release Spring Boot 2.2 M5 later this week at which point you’ll be able to consume Spring Framework 5.2 RCs through!

This Week in Spring - July 30, 2019

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring. This week I’m in sweet San Francisco, soaking up the sun and enjoying the fun of summer. Sure, I’ve got a few meetings, and appearances, etc., but it is very nice to be home. By the by, I’ll be speaking at the upcoming San Francisco Java User Group - come hang out and say hi!

Anyway, lots of good stuff (as usual), so let’s get to it.


Spring Cloud Data Flow 2.2.0 Released

The Spring Cloud Data Flow team is pleased to announce the GA release of 2.2.0.

In this GA release, Spring Cloud Data Flow team has worked on some of the key features including task application management, stability on the product by increasing the acceptance tests coverage across platforms (local, Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry), bug fixes and enhancements.

Task Application Management

It is now possible to stop and delete task executions using the SCDF Dashboard and the Shell.
We have added support for task application monitoring using micrometer integration. The core of the Micrometer integration landed in Spring Cloud Task’s 2.2.0 release-line, which by the way is a requirement if you are going to try out the Task-metrics and the SCDF integration.


Simplifying the Spring Cloud Release Train

Spring Cloud continues to prove immensely popular, and over the last few years a number of IaaS providers have provided integration with their technology and joined the release train. This has typically involved getting into the spring-cloud GitHub org and publishing in the Maven groupid. As the number of projects included looks to increase, it is becoming a little unwieldy, and we wanted to take a step back and review the pros and cons that this model provides and propose a better path forward that benefits all projects involved.
