It is time - Goodbye Spring Boot 1.x!

As mentioned in the announcement last year, the Spring Boot 1.x line has reached end of life. Spring Boot 1.5.22 which was released earlier today will be the last release in the 1.x. line.

We expect most users to have upgraded their applications to Spring Boot 2.x. For those that haven’t migrated yet, we strongly advise doing so as soon as possible. There are detailed instructions on how to migrate from 1.x to 2.x in the migration guide. For a smooth upgrade experience, we recommend upgrading in phases instead of jumping straight to the latest stable release. Once the upgrade from the latest 1.5.x version to the latest 2.0.x version is complete, you should upgrade to the latest release in the 2.1.x line.

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.


Spring Framework 5.2 goes RC1

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!
