Releases | Christoph Strobl | March 05, 2015 | ...

I'm pleased to announce the availability of the first and final release candidate of the Spring Data release train named Fowler. The release ships 149 tickets fixed. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Support for Java 8 Stream as return type in JPA and MongoDB.
  • Enhanced support for JSR-310 and the ThreeTen back port types.
  • Dedicated GeoJSON types for the MongoDB module.
  • Compatibility with MongoDB 3.0 and the new MongoDB Java driver (current beta3).
  • Auto-populate the last modified header for audited entities in Spring Data REST.
  • @Score annotation for Solr.
  • Support for suggestions in Elasticsearch.

A curated change log can be found in the wiki while the full list can be viewed in JIRA.
