Dear Spring Community,
I am happy to announce the first milestone release 3.0.0.M1 of the SpringSource Tool Suite (STS).
Highlights from this milestone include:
- the distribution now ships on top of the Eclipse Juno M6 (4.2M6) packages.
- updated to tc Server 2.6.5
- some improvements around Spring-related content-assists and code templates
- Groovy 2.0 support
- Grails 2.0.3 support
- Java7 support for AspectJ/AJDT
Since the Eclipse Juno release in June will be based on the new Eclipse 4.2 platform (instead of the 3.x development stream), we decided to ship this milestone build of STS based on the latest Juno milestone builds instead of the latest Indigo SR2 release. We expect a lot of fixes in the Eclipse platform until the final Eclipse version ships in June, so some glitches that you might experience using this M1 build of STS will be fixed for the release. Nevertheless we would like to encourage you to give this M1 build a try and report problems and incompatibilities that you experience while using it.
In addition to the distribution we still provide 3.7-compatible update sites, so you can continue to use your existing Indigo-based STS installation and update to the 3.0 version of STS. Support for Eclipse Helios (3.6) will not be provided with STS 3.0.
More details can be found in the New and Noteworthy for 3.0.0.M1 document.
As always downloads are available from the STS download page, check “Other Downloads”.
3.0.0.M2 is planned for June 2012, followed by the 3.0.0 GA in July 2012.
