Spring Data Release Train Kay M3 Released

On behalf of the Spring Data team, I’d like to announce the availability of the third milestone of the release train Kay.

The most significant change is an improved naming scheme for CrudRepository. We extracted the store-specific CustomConversions to Spring Data Commons and introduced bi-directional type-based converters to maintain a single API for common conversion code. You can now define converters using lambdas. You need to adopt your code to the renamed methods. MongoDB ships with a renamed annotation for reactive tailable cursors, we renamed @InfiniteStream to @Tailable. Users of Spring Data for Apache Cassandra can now upgrade to a higher Guava version as we upgraded to Datastax driver 3.2.0.
