Spring Boot Support Policy
Spring Boot 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 Boot, 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 Boot releases are available:
2.2.xwas released October 2019 and is actively maintained
2.1.xwas released October 2018 and remains supported until the end of October 2020
End of Life Releases
2.0.xwas released March 2018 and entered EOL on April 3rd 2019
1.5.xwas released January 2017 and is the last in the
1.xline. It entered EOL on August 1st 2019
Spring Boot provides managed dependencies for many third-party libraries. These libraries are upgraded only at the patch level for any given Spring Boot 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 Boot against an unsupported third-party library.
Commercial support for Spring Boot is available from Pivotal. Please see https://pivotal.io/pivotal-spring-runtime for details.
