InfoQ Homepage News Spring Boot 2.7.0 Released with Support for GraphQL, Podman and Cache2k
VMware has released Spring Boot 2.7.0, the latest and final branch of the 2.x series. Spring Boot 3.0, planned for November 2022, will be the next version.
This latest version of Spring Boot includes support for Spring for GraphQL 1.0; support for the Podman container engine as an alternative to Docker Engine when building images using Cloud Native Buildpacks; dependency management and auto-configuration for Cache2k; and new test annotations for ElasticSearch and CouchBase.
Additionally, the JavaInfoContributor and OsInfoContributor classes have been improved and can now expose more information about the Java version, vendor and underlying OS, respectively, under the Info endpoint.
If a project contains custom auto-configurations, the registration must be moved from spring.factories to a new file named META-INF/spring/org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.AutoConfiguration.imports.
