Spring Framework 5.0.5 and 4.3.15 available now

Dear Spring community,

I’m pleased to announce that Spring Framework 5.0.5 and 4.3.15 are available now, as another pair of refinement releases which are recommended as immediate upgrades for all users. Our 5.0.5 release is the foundation for the upcoming Spring Boot 2.0.1 release later this week, and 4.3.15 will be picked up by Boot 1.5.11 around the same time.

Both framework releases come with plenty of bug fixes but also with a wide selection of refinements, wrapping up before we branch towards Spring Framework 5.1 and turn the 5.0.x and 4.3.x lines into low-volume maintenance mode. Our 5.0.5 build is also prepared for running on the recently released JDK 10, allowing the framework to be built and tested on JDK 8 as well as 9 and 10 in the meantime. Last but not least, 5.0.5 (and to a minor degree 4.3.15 as well) includes significant performance improvements for annotation introspection on startup.

Property Binding in Spring Boot 2.0

Since the first release of Spring Boot, it has been possible to bind properties to classes by using the @ConfigurationProperties annotation. It has also been possible to specify property names in different forms. For example, person.first-name, person.firstName and PERSON_FIRSTNAME can all be used interchangeably. We call this feature “relaxed binding”.

Unfortunately, in Spring Boot 1.x, “relaxed binding” turned out to be a little bit too relaxed. It was quite hard to define exactly what the binding rules were and when specific formats could be used. We also started to get reports of issues that were very hard to fix with our 1.x implementation. For example, in Spring Boot 1.x it is not possible to bind items to a java.util.Set.
