    πŸ”„ Changelog

    Some of the most relevant changes are:

    πŸ‘ 1. Scala 2.13.0-RC2 support, to keep Play ecosystem on track with the new upcoming version of Scala. We are also dropping support for Scala 2.11. πŸš€ 2. Akka 2.6.0-M2: as you can see in our roadmap, support Akka 2.6 is a priority, so we are closely tracking Akka 2.6 milestone releases to discover possible integrations problems sooner than later. πŸ“š 3. Removing deprecated APIs: the main removal was play.mvc.Http.Context API, which we deprecated in POlay 2.7. If your application is still using this API, we recommend you to read the migration guide for Play 2.7. πŸš€ 4. Java 11 support: Play 2.8.0 applications will support Java 11. This release milestone fixes the know issues related to running Play applications in Java 11. 🚚 5. Final changes to remove global state: this is a long journey we started a few versions ago, deprecating the APIs, providing dependency injection support and many other changes in existing APIs. Play 2.8 removes APIs such as Play.current, Play.maybeApplication and others that depend on them. ⚑️ 6. Dependencies updates: thanks to scala-steward, all dependencies were updated to the newest versions.

  • v2.7.3

    June 21, 2019

    πŸš€ The Play Team is pleased to announce the release of Play Framework 2.7.3 with binaries for Scala 2.13. This is the latest stable release of Play 2.7.x series.

    πŸ”„ Changelog

    πŸ— In order to have a Scala 2.13 build we needed to remove one internal class that can't be compiled with Scala 2.13 (see 1ad816e for details). The removed class, org.jdbcdslog.LogSqlDataSource, was only used internally so in principle users should not be impact by it.

    πŸ‘€ For more details see the full list of changes and the 2.7.3 milestone.

  • v2.7.0

    February 01, 2019

    πŸš€ The Play Team is proud to announce the release of Play 2.7.0. This release adds many new features and continues our efforts to make Play more modular, flexible, and secure. Play 2.7.0 is the result of more than 1 year of relentless work from our fantastic community comprehending more than 720 changes made from almost 150 contributors.

    What's new?

    The highlights in Play 2.7.0 include:

    πŸ‘ gRPC support

    πŸ“š gRPC is a transport mechanism for request/response and (non-persistent) streaming use cases. It is a schema-first RPC framework, where your protocol is declared in a protobuf service descriptor, and requests and responses will be streamed over an HTTP/2 connection. Play now offers play-grpc which is a module built on top of akka-grpc and gives you experimental support to declare your services in this format. See Akka gRPC's documentation on Why gRPC? for more information about when to use gRPC as your transport.

    Akka Coordinated Shutdown

    πŸ“„ Play 2.6 introduced the usage of Akka's Coordinated Shutdown but still did not use it all across the core framework or expose it to the end user. Coordinated Shutdown is now used internally to handle Play's lifecycle.

    The main advantage is that it gives you fine-grained phases where you can register tasks instead of just having a single phase like Play's application lifecycle. For example, you can add tasks to run before or after server binding, or after all the current requests finishes.

    πŸ†• New cache implementation using Caffeine

    🐎 Caffeine is a high performance, near optimal caching library based on Java 8. It is now the underlying cache library used by Play Cache APIs implementation since it is a much better option for a local cache than the version of EhCache we were using before.

    ✨ Enhanced Content Security Policy support

    πŸ”’ There is a new Content Security Policy filter available that supports CSP nonce and hashes for embedded content. The previous setting of enabling CSP by default and setting it to default-src 'self' was too strict, and interfered with browser plugins.

    0️⃣ The CSP filter uses Google's Strict CSP policy by default, which is a nonce based policy.

    Direct access to request data without Http.Context

    Historically, Play used play.mvc.Http.Context as a way to access request information and set some response data. It is a crucial part of Java HTTP & MVC APIs, but it is not a proper abstraction of how these APIs should work. You can now make your actions directly receive the request as a parameter, and consistent APIs were added to manipulate its data and the response.

    πŸ“š See our detailed migration guide for examples showing how to migrate to the new APIs.

    ⚑️ Major library updates

    πŸ“š Play 2.7 brings a new version of most of its dependencies. The updates mainly include new features, security and overall fixes. See a list of the most important updates in our migration guide. Of course, we are also bringing the latest version of our own libraries such as Play JSON, Play-WS and Twirl.

    Many improvements in Java Forms API

    πŸ‘ Java Forms APIs bring a good number of improvements like binding for file uploads, better support for advanced validation, and repeatable constraints.

    πŸ†• New HTTP Error Handlers that are more suitable for REST APIs

    🌐 Play 2.7 brings two new error handlers β€” one targeting REST APIs which will return errors formatted in JSON. The second one returns HTML or JSON errors based on the preferences specified in client’s Accept header, and it is a better option if your application uses a mixture of HTML and JSON, as is common in modern web apps.


    πŸ“š As usual, you can see the more details of those new features in the release highlights and learn how to migrate in our migration guide. See the milestone for a more comprehensive list of changes.

    How to start or migrate to Play 2.7

    πŸ“š To get started with Play, follow the instructions in our Try Play page. And if you need to migrate from an older version to Play 2.7, see our migration guide.

  • v2.7.0-RC9

    January 14, 2019

    πŸš€ The Play team is proud to announce a new, hopefully, the last, release candidate for Play 2.7.0. With this release candidate, we are fixing some issues found in RC8 and thus approaching an upcoming GA release. We are also moving closer to the idea of freezing the APIs.

    πŸš€ As with the previous RC, the primary goal is to get feedback, so please let us know if something isn't working or you see something that should be improved. If you are the author of a Play module, we would recommend checking out this release to see how it will affect your module. If there are changes not well documented in javadocs, scaladocs or our migration guides, please, let us know so that we can improve them before the general availability release.

    πŸš€ There are many improvements and changes at this new release compared to the previous RC. For more details see the full list of changes. But as we did for Play 2.6, we pushed to have a smooth migration from the previous version.

    What is new

    πŸ›  Play 2.7.0-RC9 brings several bug fixes and improvements. Notable changes:

    πŸ‘€ For other changes, you can see a summary of our progress on 2.7.0 in our roadmap document.

    Finally, thanks to the community for their help with detailed bug reports, discussion about new features, and pull requests review.
