I am happy to announce the 3.8.1 release of the Spring Tool Suite, our Eclipse-based tooling.

STS 3.8.1 focuses on fixing existing issues. The list of fixed issues include:

  • Spring Boot Dashboard works behind a proxy again.
  • Spring Boot Dashboard expose via ngrok feature work wells with multiple launch configs now.
  • In addition to templates for logging errors and warnings, there is a new logd template for logging debug output.
  • A newer version of CFT made it into STS 3.8.1 which provides an improved packaging mechanism for deploying Spring Boot apps.
  • Assert templates now use JUnit or AssertJ, depending on what is on the classpath of the project.
  • Spring Boot dashboard now shows only one port when the app uses a dynamic port and has boot devtools enabled.
  • Fixed a problem that caused services to continue to show up on the boot dashboard even though there was an error connecting to the CF target.
  • Fixed a ConcurrentModificationException in the boot dashboard.
  • The sorting of the CF targets in the boot dashboard now takes customized labels into account.
  • The reactive streams bundle is now signed.
  • Fixed an issue with the Groovy-Eclipse m2e connector with missing source folders.
  • Added an action to jump to the ngrok admin web UI directly from the boot dashboard.
  • Fixed an issue with the port of a boot app not showing up in the dashboard.
  • Fixed an issue with the boot dashboard not identifying the starting state of a boot app correctly.
  • Fixed an issue with the dialog that lets you select a manifest when deploying an app to CF (let you deploy even in case of an error in the manifest file).
