Spring Boot RC2 can't read spring.main.show_banner #346

Hi all,

I added RC2 to my project and noticed that spring.main.show_banner = false doesn't work anymore in application.properties. Now shows a banner, but in RC1 worked nicely.

Would it be a regression bug?

Many thanks!

I've got the same issue using application.yml file:

    show_banner: false

The documentation also seems to be somewhat conflicting on whether the key should be show-banner or show_banner:
howto.md says show_banner
application.yml says show-banner
ConfigFileApplicationListener.java says show_banner

Using RC1, both show-banner and show_banner seem to work.

The binder is relaxed about the key name so all of those should work (as should SHOW_BANNER, showBanner, etc.). That doesn't explain why it stopped working (but @philwebb probably knows).

It's working again in the latest snapshots, i.e. post RC2 I was mistaken, it's broken on master

We will push RC3 later today since this is such an important bug.
