Spring 2.0 went final on Tuesday! This is the product of 9 months of hard work from the Spring team, and huge amounts of user feedback (thanks!) and it’s a big step forward.
I promise my next blog will be about something other than download numbers. I’ve been playing around with some interesting approaches to testing pointcuts in @AspectJ annotations, so I’m hoping next time to post some interesting code.
But we just noticed some pretty amazing figures from SourceForge, so I can’t resist posting about them. There were over 10,000 downloads of Spring 2.0 in the first 24 hours! Interest in Spring 2.0 has been building for months–with some users already in production with a release candidate, including a prominent media site in Europe–and I think Keith’s brilliant launch page and countdown of last week topped it all off.
