This Month in Spring - September 2022

September 26, 2022 Josh Long

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Month in Spring wherein I endeavor as best as I can to capture the latest-and-greatest in the wide, wacky, and wonderful world of Springdom!

But fiiirst: are you coming to SpringOne 2022? This is our first in-person event since the pandemic and it's when we release Spring Framework 6 and Spring Boot 3, the next generation of Spring and Spring Boot respectively. It's running 6-8 December here in my hometown of sunny San Francisco, CA! Register now at and use the code S1VM22_Advocate_200 to get $200 off the current registration price.

I hope you're doing well. I've got a busy October planned. I hope to see some of you around, too! I'll be at Devoxx in Belgium; JavaOne in Las Vegas, NV, USA; and Confluent Current in Austin, TX, USA. I sure hope to see you there.

We've got a ton of things to look into, so let's dive right into it.
