This Week in Spring - January 18th, 2022

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another jam-packed, fun-filled, rock’em sock’em installment of This Week in Spring! It’s the 18th of January and I’m feelin’ great because I just got back from a three-day weekend. Here in the US, we celebrated on Monday the life of the good Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a civil rights activist who advanced the plight of African American civil rights. Dr. King is another one of my favorite doctors, along with Drs. Syer, Strange, Who, Subramaniam, and Pollack.

How’re you? We’ve got a lot to cover so let’s get to it!

Spring REST Docs 3.0.0-M1

On behalf of the team and everyone who has contributed, I am pleased to announce that Spring REST Docs 3.0.0-M1 is now available from https://repo.spring.io/milestone.

This initial 3.0 milestone contains 13 enhancements, documentation improvements, and dependency upgrades. It covers the baseline upgrade efforts, in particular requiring JDK 17 and Spring Framework 6 and migrating to the Jakarta EE 9 APIs as announced in this blog post.

Please note that support for REST Assured has been removed temporarily as it is not yet compatible with Jakarta EE 9. We hope to reinstate support in a subsequent milestone prior to 3.0’s release towards the end of this year.

First Spring Data 2022.0.0 and 2021.2.0 milestones released

On behalf of the team and everyone who contributed, I’m pleased to announce the availability of the first round of milestones of the Spring Data 2022.0 and 2021.2 release trains.

2021.x vs. 2022.x

You might now ask why is there a new release in the calver 2021.x version and why is there already a 2022.x release?

In parallel to working on Spring Data 3.x, aka 2022.0.0, we continue to invest in the support of the Spring Data 2.x development line. We already expect Spring Data 2.7 and 2.8 releases. So, if you want to continue using Spring Boot 2 for an extended period of time, stick to the 2021.x release trains (which are based on Spring Framework 5.3 and Java 8). That’s the reason we chose to continue with calver 2021.x, which, hopefully, makes understanding version compatibilities easier.
Our Spring Data 3.x development line will be based on Java 17 and Spring Framework 6 and be compatible with Spring Boot 3.

Spring Framework 6.0.0-M2 and 5.3.15 available now

Spring Framework 5.3.15 includes 17 fixes and improvements as a recommended upgrade for all Spring production scenarios. Spring Framework 6.0.0-M2 includes 6 additional fixes and improvements specific to the 6.0 branch.
