Spring Data release train reaches RC station

Dear Spring community, I am pleased to announce the next Spring Data release train stop, including Spring Data JPA, MongoDB, Neo4j, Gemfire as well as its foundation Spring Data Commons. The release is the final one before bringing all the modules into GA state of their next major version. Here are the highlights:

All modules
- Depend on Spring 3.1.2 by default. The modules are still fully compatible with Spring 3.0.7 but users have to manually declare Spring dependencies in they Maven pom.xml files if they’d like to use the older version. Note that some of the features included in this release (e.g. the usage of @EnableRepositories) require Spring 3.1.0 at least.

Spring Data Book
We’re currently working on a Spring Data book with O’Reilly, which is available free for public review. If you would like to help shaping the book or maybe point people to a general introduction into Spring Data, feel free to spread the link.

Along side the release candidates we released bugfix releases for Spring Data JPA (1.1.2.RELEASE) as well as MongoDB (1.0.4.RELEASE). Looking forward to your feedback in the forums or the bug tracker.
