This release provides an upgrade path to Spring Framework 5 along with Java 8, Servlet 3.1, Hibernate 5, Tiles 3, and JSF 2.2 as minimum requirements.
In this release “spring-js” has been merged with “spring-webflow” so there is no longer a separate “spring-js” module. As a result some configuration classes have changed packages. The “spring-js-resources” module is still available but as an optional module that must be included explicitly if needed.
Please give the release candidate a try and report any issues. The final release is currently scheduled for early March.
