spring #batch 2.1.9.RELEASE is available (download github http://bit.ly/NYXItL or Maven central). Thanks to all contributors!
It's mostly bugfixes for 2.1.8, plus a few interesting additions (e.g. nested tasklets from any namespace to support Spring Hadoop): http://static.springsource.org/sprin...1.8-2.1.9.html.
The first real commit for 2.2 came in as a pull request. Nice work! Please keep them coming.
