Dear Spring Community,
We are pleased to announce that a new milestone release (1.1.0.M1) of the Spring Data Graph project with Neo4j support is now available!
The primary goal of the Spring Data project is to make it easier to build Spring-powered applications that use new data access technologies such as non-relational databases, map-reduce frameworks, and cloud based data services.
The Graph Neo4j module provides integration with the Neo4j graph database. Back in 2010, Rod Johnson and Emil Eifrem started brainstorming about Spring and Neo4j integration including transparent persistence and cross-store support. After an initial prototype it has been further developed in close cooperation between the VMware and Neo Technology development teams.

The key changes in the Spring Data Graph 1.1.0.M1 milestone release include:
- updated dependency to Neo4j 1.4.M04 including API updates to Neo4j 1.4 changes
- updated dependency to AspectJ 1.6.12.M1 (also available with STS 2.7.0.M2)
- fixed errors in the REST binding (multiple property setting, index operations)
- added support for the Neo4j query language “Cypher” in entity annotations, introduced methods and repositories
