Spring Data Release Train Fowler Goes GA

On behalf of the Spring Data team I’d like to announce the availability of the GA version of Spring Data release train Fowler.The release ships almost 400 tickets solved.

The most core theme of the train is advanced support for Java 8: the MongoDB and JPA modules now support Streams as return type for repository methods and we now support non-time-zoned JDK 8 date/time types our of the box and also integrate with the Java 7 back-port of that API.

Spring Data MongoDB ships with compatibility for the 3.0 version of the server and the corresponding driver version. Spring Data Gemfire now supports Gemfire 8.0. The object-to-store mapping has seen some extensive performance improvements so that e.g. the MongoDB should see a decent increase in operations per second.

A curated change log can be found here, the full list of fixed ticket is available in our JIRA. We are currently preparing a blog post to cover the new features in greater detail. The next release train is going to be named after the father of Java, James Gosling.
