What’s new Permalink to "What’s new"

Lots of new features and bug fixes in this new release!

Our biggest news is the new AngularJS code for our entities, thanks to gzsombor in PR #1372). Entities have now an easier-to-read code and better URLs. This can of course still be improved, don’t hesitate to send us feedback!

One long-standing and really annoying issue with Jadira (see #1626) is finally fixed: many thanks to @chrisphe, the Jadira lead developer, who did the 4.0.0.GA release just for us, only a few hours after we asked it on Twitter!

We upgraded to Swagger 2, now called “SpringFox”, see #1508, and this allowed us to solve another long-standing issue with date handling in swagger, see #1515.

Last but not least, we also upgraded to Spring Boot 1.2.5 (highly recommended upgrade as there is a security fix), Cassandra 2.1.7 (which fixes also a number of bugs) and Gatling 2.1.6.

And as always, you can check all the closed tickets here.
