We are pleased to announce that Spring Batch 4.0.0.M3 is now available via Github and the Pivotal download repository. This release represents the third milestone for the Spring Batch 4.0 release. Many thanks to all that contributed to this release.
This milestone continues the work laid out in the previous 4.0.0 milestones. Specific updates include:
- Dependency updates
- Continued java configuration improvements
- Intial updates to documentation
As the dependency graph of Spring Boot 2 evolves, we have been updating our dependencies to be in line with them. This includes the updating of Spring Data Kay and Spring Integraiton 5 dependencies as well as removing support for Log4J 1.x in favor of the newer 2.x line.
