Spring Framework 5.0 Roadmap Update

Spring 5 is tracking JDK 9 very closely. Since there's likely going to be a 6 month delay, Spring framework 5 will still release it's first milestones on schedule, but they won't go GA until JDK 9 is finished.

You might have heard the news already: JDK 9 is going to be delayed by half a year, now aiming for a March 2017 release instead of its original September 2016 target.

Since Spring 5 is designed to track JDK 9 very closely, we decided to revisit our own roadmap as well: We are nevertheless going to start our release candidate phase in Q4 2016 but we won’t go GA before March 2017 either. That said, we really mean it: The goal is for Spring Framework 5.0 to go GA right after JDK 9’s GA date then.

The opportunity for you to start working with Spring 5 features will begin much sooner anyway, with the first Spring Framework 5.0 milestone scheduled for June 2016…

In the meantime, our spring-reactive R&D project is making a lot of progress already; feel free to chime in with design feedback at this point! The reactive R&D project will get merged into Spring Framework 5.0 proper when the actual 5.0 branch starts next year.
