On behalf of the team and everyone who has contributed, I’m happy to announce that Spring Boot
2.7.18 has been released and is now available from Maven Central.
This release includes 43 bug fixes, documentation improvements, and dependency upgrades. Thanks to all those who have contributed with issue reports and pull requests.
After 5.5 years and 121 releases, 2.7.18 marks the end of open source support for Spring Boot 2.x. Please upgrade to Spring Boot 3 as soon as possible. If you are not yet ready to upgrade, commercial support for Spring Boot 2.7.x is available.
If you have yet to upgrade to Spring Boot 3, detailed instructions
are available in the migration guide. For a smooth upgrade experience, we recommend upgrading in phases instead of jumping straight to the latest stable release. Once the upgrade from the latest 2.7.x version to the latest 3.0.x version is complete, you should upgrade to the latest release in the 3.1.x line, and so on.
