Dear Spring community,
We are pleased to announce that Spring Batch 1.1.0.RELEASE has been released!
The main change from 1.0 is the addition of shared persistent state between steps in a job (the JobExecution has its own ExecutionContext). This means there is a schema change in the meta-data tables, so any existing 1.0 jobs running in parallel with the new version will have to use a different database schema. There is an upgrade script for users who want to migrate all there 1.0 data and processes to 1.1.
