Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I'm in Gothenburg, Sweden talking to developers at the JDays 2013 conference about Spring. What a great crowd and a great reception. It's been a blast, but I'm headed home soon to scarf down some turkey with friends and family! If you celebrate the US Thanksgiving holiday, let us be the first to wish you a very happy holiday!
- Spring Batch lead Michael Minella has announced that Spring Batch 2.2.3 is now available!
- Spring Data lead Oliver Gierke has announced the first milestone of the next Spring Data release train named Codd. This release welcomes two new members to the train: the Spring Data Solr community project as well as Spring Data REST. Awesome!
- Dr. Mark Pollack's session introducing Spring XD from QCon SF 2013 is now available! (This is the first thing I watched out of all the content in this week's roundup. It's awesome!)
