Dear Spring Community,

I'm pleased to announce that the second release candidate of Spring BlazeDS Integration, the open source solution for building Spring-powered RIAs with Adobe Flex, is now available.

This is mainly a bug fix release to correct some minor issues found thanks to the fantastic community feedback in response to RC1, but we've also made some key improvements to the way the project is packaged and made available. We are now bundling the comprehensive Spring BlazeDS Integration Test Drive sample application, developed in conjunction with Adobe, together with the project distribution. This version of the Test Drive is set up to be built with Maven, imported into Eclipse, and run with WTP. A short guide to building and running the sample has been added to the reference manual. Additionally, this is the first release to publish Maven-central-compatible POM's, available in our milestone repository.
