Spring Framework 4.0.5 & 3.2.9 released - next stop: 4.1

Releases | Juergen Hoeller | May 20, 2014 | ...

Dear Spring community,

It's my pleasure to announce that Spring Framework 4.0.5 and 3.2.9 have been released. Both of those are designed as a final feature release in the respective line - we will only consider further releases from the 4.0.x and 3.2.x branches in case of serious bugs now.


Spring Framework 3.2.9 comes with a repackaged ASM 5.0.2 and is therefore capable of basic Java 8 bytecode processing. However, specific Java 8 feature support - JSR-310 date-time, repeatable annotations, etc - is exclusive to the Spring Framework 4.x line.

SPR roadmap at jira.spring.io

The Spring Framework team is busily working towards the 4.1 release now, with a release candidate scheduled for end of June. Note that Spring Framework 4.1 is a rapid follow-up release which will go GA in July, immediately superseding the 4.0.x line.
