Quarkus 2.16.0.Final released - Redis time series and preloading, support for XDS in gRPC

Today we released Quarkus 2.16.0.Final with several improvements, bugfixes and documentation refinements.

Major changes are:

  • Support for time series operations and preloading data in the Redis extension

  • Support for custom exception handling and XDS in the gRPC extension

  • More flexibility for the Cache extension configuration

  • Several security-related improvements focused on improving the developer experience

Migration Guide

To migrate from 2.15, please refer to our migration guide.

What’s new?


We continue to extend the set of operations supported by the Redis extension, this time with time series operations.

Similarly to what exists with Hibernate ORM and the import.sql file, you can import data to your Redis instance on startup using an import.redis file. More information about this feature is available in the Redis reference guide.


The gRPC extension now offers custom exception handling and support for XDS.


Most of the Cache extension configuration has been made runtime, allowing you to define the cache configuration at runtime.


Security-related annotations such as @TestSecurity or @OidcSecurity can be defined on meta-annotations: you can define a particular security configuration in a meta-annotation and apply it on several methods.

Configuration properties are now expanded in @RolesAllowed annotations' value.

The OidcClientFilter has been improved to be able to select named OIDC clients.

Improvements to @IfBuildProfile and @UnlessBuildProfile

Support for allOf and anyOf has been added to @IfBuildProfile and @UnlessBuildProfile, giving you more flexibility.
