JHipster release v5.0.0-beta.3

This is a specific security release on top of our v5.0.0-beta.2 release from last week, as 2 important security issues have been fixed on Spring Boot 2.0.3.

Please note that Spring Boot 2.0.3 also breaks the way Ehcache works with JHipster: many thanks to Henri Tremblay from the Ehcache team who did an incredible job in fixing the issue during the week-end!

More information on this Spring Boot 2.0.3 upgrade (including the Ehcache issue) is available on #7783.

This BETA version is not available through the usual channels as this is a beta release, please read below for more information!
