The Spring Security SAML project has been an integral part of the Spring ecosystem since its inception nearly 9 years ago. This critically important project was born through the incredible effort and contributions of Vladimír Schäfer. I’d like to take the time to personally thank Vladimír and our fantastic community for their tireless work. Without all of their efforts, this project would not be what it is today.
Vladimír, our amazing community, and the Spring engineering team are planning to team up to enhance Spring Security SAML to achieve the following primary goals:
Ensuring all dependencies are up to date
Ensure all Spring Security APIs do not expose any dependency APIs
Graduate Spring Security SAML from an extension into Spring Security proper
Starting today Filip Hanik will be working full time on Spring Security SAML to help the community push these goals forward in a timely manner. If you would like to get involved, please join us. You may also ping me in the comments on this blog or ping us on Twitter at @rob_winch and @fhanik.
