Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I'm in Istanbul, Turkey, talking to customers and participating in the epic SpringOne Platform Istanbul event and, otherwise, generally preparing for the flagship SpringOne Platform 2018 event in just a few short weeks
Let's get into it!
- Spring Security lead Josh Cummings just announced Spring Security 5.1.0.RC2. The new release supports a ton of new stuff, including a simplified DSL for OAuth 2,
WebClientextensions, servlet enhancements, improved resource server support, improved
RestTemplatesupport, support for X.509, and the use of environment variables for configuring LDAP.
- Mark Paluch has just announced the packed Spring Data Ingalls SR15 and Spring Data Kay SR10.
- Mark Paluch has just announced Spring Vault 2.0.2, which delivers dependency updates and some minor bug fixes.
- Mark Paluch just announced the Spring Vault 2.1 release candidate. Spring Vault 2.1 requires JDK 8 or higher and specifically supports JDK 11 as the next long-term support release. This release ships with 15 tickets fixed along with some refinements for Java 9 to 11. The most notable changes are supported for Azure authentication with managed service instances on VMs, GCP IAM authentication support on behalf of service accounts, and the release is compatible with Vault versions from 0.5.2 up to 0.11.1.
