Spring Boot 2.0 has recently been released and it comes with the latest and greatest Spring Framework. It has introduced a comprehensive support for reactive programming as an alternative to the traditional blocking model based on the Servlet API. Consequently, a large part of Spring Boot 2 involved integrating a lot of the reactive support from Spring Framework 5 including WebFlux and Project Reactor. It doesn't stop there as Boot is not short of awesomeness, it ships with Micrometer for its smart Observability story. You want to catch-up ? Bring yourself to this gentle introduction and learn more about our current plans, the reactive features and the new observability model.
