Dear Spring community,
On behalf of the Spring Framework team and our contributors, it is my pleasure to announce that Spring Framework 5.3 is generally available from repo.spring.io as well as Maven Central!
Spring Framework 5.3 requires JDK 8 or higher and specifically embraces JDK 15 as the latest OpenJDK release, e.g. with binding support for record classes. As the last feature branch of the 5.x generation, the 5.3.x line is set up for an extended support phase, including JDK 17 LTS next year.
