Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! As usual, we've got a lot to cover so let's get to it! A lot of this news come from SpringSource itself, from various projects timed to coincide with SpringOne2GX last week. It's like receiving an early birthday gift! And speaking of gifts, if you missed SpringOne2GX, don't worry! We recorded the SpringOne sessions and they will be posted soon. Also, you can check out the show wrap ups for Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 on to get a flavor for the conference.
