Notable Changes in the 2020 Release Train

We have changed our release train versioning scheme. We now follow Calendar Versioning or calver for short. We will follow the YYYY.MINOR.MICRO scheme where MINOR is an incrementing number that starts at zero each year. The MICRO segment corresponds to suffixes previously used: .0 is analogous to .RELEASE and .2 is analogous to .SR2. Pre-release suffixes will also change from using a . to a - for the separator, for example 2020.0.0-M1 and 2020.0.0-RC2. We will also stop prefixing snapshots with BUILD- – for example 2020.0.0-SNAPSHOT.

Spring Cloud Roadmap and Hoxton and Greenwich Maintenance and EOL Announcements

With the recent Spring Framework and Spring Boot maintenance and roadmap posts, the Spring Cloud team is taking the opportunity to provide some insight to our future roadmap as well as the lifetimes of the Greenwich and Hoxton release trains.

Spring Cloud Ilford

We would like to announce our next major release, Spring Cloud Ilford. This will be the first major release since the release of Spring Cloud Finchley, which provided support for Spring Boot 2.x and Spring Framework 5.x. By making Ilford a major release, it will allow us to remove modules that have entered maintenance mode and to complete the simplification of the release train announced earlier this year. It will also allow us to do some API refactoring that may introduce breaking changes.

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 org.springframework.cloud 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.
