Spring Integration 4.2 Milestone 2 is Available (and 4.1.6)

Releases | Gary Russell | July 07, 2015 | ...

We are pleased to announce that the second milestone for the upcoming 4.2 release of Spring Integration is now available. In addition to those features in milestone 1 this release includes:

##Zookeeper Support

Several components have been added that use zookeeper, including a LockRegistry and MetadataStore but probably the most significant is the ability to assign endpoints to a leadership Role, with the endpoint lifecycle being controlled by the leadership status. When an application context is granted leadership, all endpoints in the corresponding role are started automatically. Similarly…

Hibernate, Jackson, Jetty etc support in Spring 4.2

Releases | Juergen Hoeller | July 01, 2015 | ...

Spring is well-known to actively support the latest versions of common open source projects out there, e.g. Hibernate and Jackson but also common server engines such as Tomcat and Jetty. We usually do this in a backwards-compatible fashion, supporting older versions at the same time - either through reflective adaptation or through separate support packages. This allows for applications to selectively decide about upgrades, e.g. upgrading to the latest Spring and Jackson versions while preserving an existing Hibernate 3 investment.

With the upcoming Spring Framework 4.2, we are taking the…

Spring Data Fowler SR 1 released

Releases | Christoph Strobl | July 01, 2015 | ...

Hot on the heels of the final service updates for the release trains Dijkstra and Evans, the first service release for the Spring Data release train Fowler has just been shipped to repo.spring.io and Maven Central. The Fowler SR1 maintenance release includes a total of 119 issues solved and is a recommended upgrade for all users.

Final Spring Data Service Releases Evans SR3 and Dijkstra SR6 released

Releases | Oliver Drotbohm | July 01, 2015 | ...

On behalf of the Spring Data team I'd like to announce the availability of the final service release of the Spring Data release trains Evans and Dijkstra. Evans SR3 ships 114 tickets fixed, Dijkstra SR6 has 56 bugs squashed.

Dijkstra is the last release train compatible with Spring 3.2 and picks up the latest service release of that as well. Evans has been superseded by Fowler (currently in use in Spring Boot 1.2) which saw a first service release today as well. The service releases are basically considered a conclusion of the branches and upgrading to Fowler is recommended to all users.

Spring Framework 4.1.7 & 3.2.14 released

Releases | Juergen Hoeller | June 30, 2015 | ...

Dear Spring community,

I'm pleased to announce that the Spring Framework 4.1.7 and 3.2.14 maintenance releases are available now. Aside from fixing various minor issues across the framework, these releases also address an XML parsing vulnerability through disabling DTD processing by default when parsing untrusted XML input in Spring MVC endpoints.

Note that Spring Framework 3.2.x has its End-of-Life scheduled for December 31, 2016. Based on demand and vulnerability reports, further maintenance releases will be made available up until then. At the same time, we strongly recommend a migration to Spring Framework 4.1.7 or the upcoming 4.2
