What’s new in Spring

Let’s check on some new releases announced by the Spring community over the previous days:

  • Spring Boot 1.0.0.RC1

    Spring was pleased to announce the first release candidate of Spring Boot v1.0.0. It contains a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous milestone. Binaries have been published to the Spring Maven Repository. The project page is updated with download instructions and Maven/Gradle co-ordinates.

  • Spring Web Flow 2.3.3

    Spring has also announced the availability of Spring Web Flow 2.3.3. This release is the third maintenance release of the 2.3.x branch, that is also compatible to Spring Framework 4 and JSF 2.2. The versions are already used in the spring-webflow-samples Github repository.

  • Spring Data Redis 1.1.1

    Spring Data Redis 1.1.1 is here! It is a maintenance release, that contains some bug fixes and improvements, especially in connections handling, threads and the test harness setup. It is tested against Java 6, 7 and 8. It is compatible with Redis 2.4, 2.6 and 2.8, as well as Spring Framework 4.0.

  • Spring Framework 4.0.1 & 3.2.7 is now released, whereas 3.1.x is retired

    Spring Framework 4.0.1 is finally available, accompanied by a 3.2.7 release. The new releases come with significant bug fixes and improvements over their immediate predecessors and are strongly recommended for an upgrade. JIRA provides details on the issues addressed in each release.

    A thing to notice here is that with the 3.2.7 release, the Spring Framework 3.2.x line is officially turned into maintenance mode. A 3.2.8 release is planned for later this year, but it will only contain bug fixes and is intended to be the last regular 3.2.x release. From now on, further features will be included in the 4.0.x series as well as 4.1, with the latter scheduled for general availability in August.
    The Spring Framework 3.1.x branch is also officially retired, entirely superseded by the 3.2.x line. So an upgrade to 3.2.7, or even straight to 4.0.1 is recommended, so that suport can be provided again.

Feedback is always welcome by Spring, so do not hesitate to raise an issue for any questions or improvements suggestions!
