Spring Cloud Support Policy
Spring Cloud follows the Pivotal OSS support policy and supports major versions for 3 years from the release date.
In addition, upon release of a major or minor version of Spring Cloud, the previous version will be supported for a 12 month period for critical bugs and security issues.
As much as possible, we recommend that all users migrate to the latest GA release.
The following Spring Cloud releases are available:
Hoxton was released in November 2019 and will be actively maintained until June 30, 2021 (Supporting the Spring Boot 2.2.x and 2.3.x lines). If critical bugs or security issues arise after that period, they will be patched until December 31, 2021.
Greenwich was released in January 2019 (Supporting the Spring Boot 2.1.x line). Regular support for Greenwich will end on January 31, 2020. If critical bugs or security issues arise after that period, they will be patched until December 31, 2020.
End of Life Releases
Finchley was released June 2018 and entered EOL on August 1, 2019 (supporting the Spring Boot 2.0.x line).
Edgware was released in November 2017 and is the last in the Angel line supporting Spring Boot 1.x. It entered EOL on August 1 2019.
Spring Cloud provides managed dependencies for sime third-party libraries. These libraries are upgraded only at the patch level for any given Spring Cloud release. Since we don’t upgrade minor or major versions of third-party libraries with our patch releases, you should check the EOL policies of projects that you depend on since you may find that you’re using a supported version of Spring Cloud against an unsupported third-party library.
Commercial support for Spring Cloud is available from Pivotal. Please see https://pivotal.io/pivotal-spring-runtime for details.
