Micronaut 1.1 RC Released

MICRONAUT 1.1 RC1 RELEASED

By Graeme Rocher, OCI Grails & Micronaut Product Lead and Principal Software Engineer

MARCH 20, 2019


The Micronaut Team at Object Computing is pleased to announce the release of Micronaut 1.1 RC1.

Micronaut 1.1 includes a number of significant refinements since Micronaut's groundbreaking 1.0 release including:

In addition, Micronaut 1.1 RC1 includes massive improvements to support creating GraalVM native images including:

  • Framework Improvements. Framework-level dynamic classloading and reflection has been completely removed, making it easier to get applications running on GraalVM native-image and reducing the number of customizations necessary.
  • Build Time Reflection Data. Thanks to the aforementioned feature, the remaining reflective cases needed for third-party libraries have been replaced by build-time generation of reflection-config.json for classes that do require it.
  • Simplified Image Generation. You can now generate a native image with just native-image --class-path myjar.jar without any additional flags; Micronaut now computes the appropriate GraalVM configuration at compilation time.

I will be talking about Micronaut and these new features at Greach 2019 in Madrid, followed by Oracle Code Rome. See you there!
