What’s new

This is a bug-fix release, which solves a number of issues from version 2.23.0 and updates a few libraries.

Most important bug fixes

OAuth2 authentication

OAuth2 authentication was broken when the new Spring Boot 1.3.0 devtools were selected (issue #2291). So we have removed, for the moment, our CustomUserDetails class, which was causing the issue: discussion is still under way on how we will solve this in the long term.

Cloud Foundry deployment

Deployment to Cloud Foundry was broken (issue #2225), as there is an incompatibility between Spring Boot 1.3.0 and Cloud Foundry (see the Cloud Foundry issue here). For the moment we have removed the “executable” flag on our generated WAR files, and have updated the documentation accordingly (you can’t run the WAR files directly with ./my_application.war, you need to do java -jar my_application.warinstead).

Wrong HTTP cache headers in production

Our HTTP cache headers where wrong in production (issue #2239). We have corrected then, and have now excellent performance in production back again!

Closed tickets

As always, you can check all the closed tickets here.

How to upgrade

Update your version of JHipster with:

npm update -g generator-jhipster

And then you can update your project when you run again

yo jhipster

You can also update your entities by running again the entity sub-generator, for example if your entity is named Foo

yo jhipster:entity Foo
