  1. The replay of Ben Hale's talk on RESTful API evolution from SpringOne2GX 2013 is now available online
  2. Spring and Groovy/Grails Tool Suite lead Martin Lippert just refreshed the most popular article ever written on JavaLobby, Spring IDE and the Spring Tool Suite - Using Spring in Eclipse. Check it out!
  3. Spring XD lead Dr. Mark Pollack has just announced that Spring XD 1.0.0.M5 is now available
  4. Oliver Gierke's talk from SpringOne2GX "Spring RESTBucks: a Hypermedia Driven REST webservice" is now available online.
  5. Following the crazy success of the Spring 4 webinar on the 9th, Spring project lead Juergen Hoeller has just written a blog detailing the next steps for the framework, including Spring 4.1 and Spring 3.2.7.
  6. Have you tried the crazy cool shell built into Spring Boot? It's powered by CRaSH, which you can learn more about in this video
  7. The replay from Gunnar Hillert and Michael Minella's talk from SpringOne2GX 2013, Integrating Spring Batch and Spring Integration, is now available online.
  8. Matt Stine webinar, Spring with Immutability, is now available online.
  9. Rob Winch just announced that Spring LDAP 2.0.0 is now available online!
  10. Our pal Eugen Paraschiv is back at it again, this time with a post on Spring's HttpMessageConverters.
  11. Jakub Kubrynski has a nice post on integration testing Spring Integration and Spring 4
  12. Gary Russell has just announced that Spring AMQP 1.3.0.M1 and 1.2.1 RELEASE are now available. The new release is very meaty, so if you're using it, I strongly suggest upgrading!
  13. Sproogle 0.3.0, which is an integration with Spring and parts of the Google stack (that don't so far as I can tell include the OAuth pieces that Spring Social Google takes care of), is now available.
  14. On the GoPivotal blog, Steve Greenberg has a nice post on how to add a service to your Cloud Foundry architecture using Spring. Nice! I've been waiting for something like this for a long time!
  15. Our pals on the Vaadin team are doing a webinar on Spring and Vaadin integration best-practices on January 30th, 2014. Check it out!
  16. A little late, but RestHub, which integrates a full Spring-powered REST and web application stack, has just released RESTHub 2.1.4. Check it out!
  17. Rest Assured, which provides an alternative testing API for REST services, has just released a new version that supports Spring MVC.
  18. New Relic has just announced dedicated Grails support.
  19. Zan Thrash did a nice talk on InfoQ about using Node.js ecosystem tools for client-side development along with Grails. The talk has very little to do with Grails, actually, and could as easily be applied to Java and Spring MVC development. These tools are front-and-center for many different types of web application developers, and this talk is a good primer.
