Juergen Hoeller has announced that Spring 3.0.3 is now available. This minor release addresses over 100 minor issues and catches up with some recent third-party releases.

Download | Documentation | Javadoc API | Change Log | JIRA

Please note that we are not providing a dependencies download anymore. The recommended way of obtaining third-party libraries for use with Spring is Maven/Ivy; you could also download third-party distributions of your choice and take the jars from there. Note that there is no reason to upgrade third-party libraries unless you want to: The simplest solution is to keep using the versions that you know and trust.
