What’s new Permalink to "What’s new"

This new release has 66 closed tickets and merged pull requests, here are the most important news:

As a result of those latest changes and bug fixes, we have removed the BETA tag on JHipster UAA and on our Kafka support option.

Warning Big changes in the OAuth2 support will happen in the next release, see #6361:

  • We will migrate from our current home-made OAuth2 support (based on Spring Security OAuth2) to use OpenID Connect
  • As a result, JHipster will work with OpenID Connect providers like Keycloak or Okta
  • This will remove a lot of code, and provide better quality and features
  • As the current OAuth2 code is used by less than 1% of projects, we feel that this change will not affect many people
