We’re pleased to announce a first milestone release of Spring Statemachine 1.1.0.M1.
We released 1.0.0.M1 April 2015 and 1.0.0.RELEASE October 2015. We've also done 2 maintenance releases for 1.0.x series and now it's time to look in a future with a 1.1.x serie. 1.0.x enters into a maintenance mode while main development will focus on 1.1.x. This doesn't mean that we'll stop with 1.0.x, maintenance fixes for it will be done until we're succesfully transitioned beyond 1.1.x release. It is important in Spring projects to not drop maintenance until users are ready to move on into next minor/major release. We expect 1.0.x and 1.1.x live side by side until we fire out 1.2.x or 2.x serie in foreseeable future.
What we actually got into this first milestone:
Full changes as usual is available from changelog.
We added preliminary support for Session scoped beans for a state machine which has been a base for getting support for Spring Session. Further work is still work in progress waiting for next release from Spring Session 1.1.x order to support custom session serialization.
We're planning to do second milestone before a release candidate order to get into Spring IO release later this year around May(ish). We may do a final release when we're ready but IO schedule is a final possible target date.
