I'm happy to announce that we just released the final version of SpringSource Tool Suite 2.1.0; the first GA version with major enhancements since making STS freely available.
The release comes with brand-new installers for all supported platforms and bundles latest versions of SpringSource tc and dm Server as well as Spring Roo. Additionally you can choose between distributions based on Eclipse 3.4 and the recently released 3.5 aka Eclipse Galileo.
Because we've seen lots of interest in the new Groovy tools we also offer a bundled download of STS and the Groovy Eclipse Plugin.
The list of new features in STS is long and we already covered some of them in previous blog posts. Review the New & Noteworthy for more details.
In summary here are the highlights:
The team has already started to work on the next release iteration. You can closely follow our progress in JIRA. The major work items for upcoming STS versions include:
If you think there is something missing or you'd like to see certain features in the above areas head over to the STS JIRA and file a new user story or defect. We are especially interested in your thoughts about first-class Grails tooling.
And finally here is the link to the downloads. The download page also has instructions on how to install STS from an Eclipse update site.
Update: We released a service release for STS 2.1.0.RELEASE which is available from the download page. Users can also use the update manager to update to 2.1.0.SR01. Please update at your earliest convenience for the best possible usage experience.
