Dear Spring community,
It's my pleasure to announce that Spring Framework 4.2 is now generally available from repo.spring.io as well as Maven Central! This is a feature release in the 4.x line, compatible with Java 6 and 7 as well as Java 8, with a focus on core refinements and modern web capabilities:

Check out New Features and Enhancements in Spring Framework 4.2 in the reference documentation for a more detailed overview. Stay tuned for the 4.2-based Spring Boot 1.3, with a release candidate expected in time for SpringOne in September...
Please note that Spring Framework 4.2 is a recommended upgrade for all 4.x users, immediately superseding the 4.1 line. The final 4.1.x maintenance release is expected by December; for any remaining issues, you'll have to upgrade to 4.2.x at that point.
Our next feature release will be Spring Framework 4.3, with a release candidate expected in March 2016. This will be the final generation within the general Spring 4 system requirements (Java 6+, Servlet 2.5+), getting prepared for an extended 4.3.x support life until 2019.
#SpringOne 2GX 2015 is around the corner! Book your place at SpringOne2GX in Washington, DC soon. It's simply the best opportunity to find out first hand all that's going on and to provide direct feedback. Join Stéphane and myself for a session on modern Java component design with Spring 4.2.
