The other day, Spring Boot 2.0.4 was released. https://spring.io/blog/2018/07/30/spring-boot-2-0-4-available-now
It seems that there are more than 90 bug fixes from the previous version, and I am very pleased, but on this day, it was announced that Spring Boot 1.x will reach EOL on August 1, 2019. The blog post is July 30th, so it's another year! It must have been an announcement. Even so, it's too early to reach EOL. .. ..
So, I will translate the article of here.
The end will come to all good things. .. .. And Spring Boot 1. Also for x system. In other words, we have decided to suspend maintenance on August 1, 2019, 12 months after today.
We will continue to release 1.5.x maintenance releases and end the branch on the final day.
Spring Boot 1.x users should plan to upgrade to the latest 2.x version by the end of maintenance date.
Also note that Spring Boot 2.0 and higher versions require Java 8+, so if you are currently using Java 6 or 7, you will also need to upgrade your JDK.
