Spring Framework 4.0.3 and Spring Data Redis 1.2.1 with Java 8 support

Spring Framework 4.0.3

Spring Framework 4.0.3 is now avalaible, as announced by the Spring community. It is the first release of the framework after Java 8’s launch last week, and so it is built with OpenJDK 8 GA and includes the latest ASM 5.0.1.

Spring Framework 4.0.3 brings significant enhancements for WebSockets. It comes along with a lot of real-life feedback incorporated back into the framework and its configuration options.

On a forward-looking note, the Spring Framework team is moving on to 4.1 development now, with a first set of new features to show up in 4.1 snapshots soon. The 4.0.4 release is prepared to come in May, however, this will only be a maintenance release, since the 4.0.x feature set is considered to be complete at this point.

Our Spring tutorials can guide you through Spring framework.

Spring Data Redis 1.2.1

Spring Data Redis 1.2.1 is also released. It is a maintenance release, that contains some bugfixes in RedisTemplate as well as in RedisCacheManager.
