Play 2.5.19 released!

The Play Team is pleased to announce the release of Play Framework 2.5.19. This is the latest stable release of Play of Play 2.5.x series.

What is Play Framework?

Play is a high-productivity Java and Scala web application framework that integrates the components and APIs you need for modern web application development.

Play is based on a lightweight, stateless, web-friendly architecture and features predictable and minimal resource consumption (CPU, memory, threads) for highly-scalable applications thanks to its reactive model, based on Akka Streams.

How to use Play 2.5.19

First, know that we highly recommend that you update to Play 2.6.x series if possible. If not, to use Play 2.5.19, just edit your project/plugins.sbt file and set the sbt-plugin to 2.5.19.
