When.js 1.8.0 Released

Releases | Jeremy Grelle | February 14, 2013 | ...

Dear Spring Community,

We are pleased to announce the release of when.js 1.8.0.

When.js is cujojs’s lightweight Promises/A and when() implementation, derived from the async core of wire.js, cujojs’s IOC Container. It also provides several other useful Promise-related concepts, such as joining multiple promises, mapping and reducing collections of promises, and timed promises.

Among other things, this release includes an extensive set of adapters for working with existing callback-based APIs, including node-style async APIs, allowing you to effectively convert them into promise-aware functions. In addition, most of the new features in this release are community contributions, which is awesome. Keep it coming!

Some specific highlights include:

  • Adapters for promisifying existing callback-based code.
  • Mechanisms for generating and processing unbounded/infinite lists
  • Promise-based periodic polling utility.

Check out the changelog for more info and direct links to docs for all the new goodies.

If you're still wondering what this cujojs thing is all about, be sure to check out Brian Cavalier and John Hann's "IOC + JavaScript" talk from SpringOne 2012.

Spring Social 1.1.0.M2 Released

Releases | Craig Walls | February 13, 2013 | ...

Dear Spring Community,

We are pleased to announce the second milestone release of Spring Social 1.1.0!

Spring Social is an extension of the Spring Framework that enables you to connect your Java applications to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers such as Facebook and Twitter.

Along with Spring Social 1.1.0, we are also releasing second milestones for Spring Social Facebook 1.1.0 and Spring Social Twitter 1.1.0.

The main theme of milestone 2 is tighter integration with Spring Security, including a new SocialAuthenticationFilter to achieve sign-in-with-provider capability directly within the Spring Security filter chain.

In addition to Spring Security integration, these milestone releases also include:

  • Support for non-standard parameters in the OAuth authorization flows.
  • Interceptor capability in ProviderSignInController's flow to allow for custom behavior in authentication flow.
  • Sign-in capability for Facebook Canvas applications, including a new spring-social-canvas sample to showcase the use of CanvasSignInController.
  • Support for paging in the Facebook API binding with "since" and "until" parameters.
  • Advanced search capabilities in the Twitter API binding.
  • Support for ticker symbol pseudo-entity in Twitter statuses.

These milestone releases also contain several smaller improvements and bug fixes.

To get the software, download the release distribution (Core | Facebook | Twitter).

As always, the Spring Social community has been awesome at providing feedback and contributing pull requests to make this release possible. Significant contributions in this release came from Stefan Fussenegger, who contributed much of the Spring Security integration code and Yuan Ji who provided feedback and refactoring help in that same set of code. Also, it seems that the Spring Social community has taken a keen interest in using Spring Social to build Facebook Canvas apps, which led to the creation of CanvasSignInController.

If you'd like to follow along or contribute, we encourage you to participate in the Spring Social Forum, report bugs or suggest enhancements, or to fork the code and contribute back via pull requests.

Spring Data release train Arora available

Releases | Oliver Drotbohm | February 13, 2013 | ...

I am pleased to announce the first themed release of the Spring Data release train named Arora. Going forward we'll use names of famous computer scientists to label a set of Spring Data modules to make it easier to identify modules being compatible to each other. This mostly refers to the Spring Data Commons version they refer to.

The Arora release contains the following modules:

The major new features of the release are:

  • Annotation based auditing support through @CreatedDate, @CreatedBy etc. (except Spring Data Gemfire)
  • Exposure of Spring Data Mapping information for all modules (to be used by Spring Data REST)
  • Spring Data Mapping information being read from accessor methods as well
  • Automatic registration of JodaTime Converters if present on classpath (Spring Data MongoDB)
  • Major improvements to mapping subsystem and query execution for Spring Data MongoDB
  • Extended querying options on query methods (Spring Data Solr)
  • Annotation support for Gemfire functions (Spring Data Gemfire)
  • A tag has been added to the gfe-data XML namespace for automatic basic client connection and region configuration. (Spring Data Gemfire)
  • Support for Lettuce Redis driver (raising the count of supported driver to 5, Spring Data Redis)
  • Dynamic removal of listener for running MesageListenerContainer (Spring Data Redis)
  • Refined Maven build to ease release process

Alongside the new major versions of the Spring Data Modules we've also published bugfix releases for Spring Data Commons (1.4.1), Spring Data JPA (1.2.1) and Spring Data MongoDB (1.1.2).

Note: The artifactId of the Spring Data Commons module has changed to from spring-data-commons-core to spring-data-commons. So if you're explicitly referring to it from your project, make sure you update the reference accordingly.

The binaries will be present in Maven central shortly if not already in place.

Spring Social Twitter 1.0.3 Released

Releases | Craig Walls | February 13, 2013 | ...

Dear Spring Community,

I'm happy to announce the release of Spring Social Twitter 1.0.3.RELEASE.

Spring Social is an extension of the Spring Framework that enables you to connect your Java applications to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers such as Facebook and Twitter.

This is an API-update release, bringing Spring Social Twitter's API binding up to date with version 1.1 of Twitter's API. Twitter has deprecated the 1.0 version of their API and will shut it down next month. It is recommended that if you are using Spring Social Twitter 1.0.2 or lower that you immediately upgrade to Spring Social Twitter 1.0.3 to avoid any disruption in functionality.

To get the software, download the release distribution.

It is anticipated that this will be the last release of Spring Social Twitter in the 1.0.x series. Work on Spring Social 1.1.0 is well underway and is now at milestone 2 for the 1.1.0 release.

Spring Web Flow 2.4 M1 and 2.3.2 Released

Releases | Rossen Stoyanchev | February 04, 2013 | ...

Spring Web Flow samples have been separated from the distribution and into a separate Github project. In addition the booking-mvc sample has been updated to use Thymeleaf thanks to Thymeleaf's project lead Daniel Fernández.

Spring Hateoas 0.4 released

Releases | Pieter Humphrey | January 29, 2013 | ...
Untitled Document

SpringSource would like to announce the release of Spring Hateoas 0.4!

The Spring HATEOAS project provides some APIs to ease creating REST representations that follow the HATEOAS principle when working with Spring and especially Spring MVC. HATEOAS, an abbreviation for Hypermedia as the Engine of Application State, is a constraint of the REST application architecture that distinguishes it from most other network application architectures. The core problem it tries to address is link creation and representation assembly.

In this release, the most important new features are:

- extended LinkBuilder API to point to Controller *methods* as well
- Jackson 2 support
- HAL support
- EntityLinks API to create links pointing to controllers managing a particular entity type
- introduced LinkDiscoverer API to find links in representations by rel (incl. JSONPath based implementation)

You can read about all of the new features and bug fixes in the change log. Enjoy!

Spring Tool Suite and Groovy/Grails Tool Suite 3.2.0.M2 released

Releases | Martin Lippert | January 29, 2013 | ...

Dear Spring Community,

I am happy to announce the second milestone release 3.2.0.M2 of the Spring Tool Suite (STS) and the Groovy/Grails Tool Suite (GGTS).

Highlights from this milestone build include:

  • a lot of overall performance improvements, especially for the Spring tooling
  • improvements to Live Beans Graph feature
  • improved Spring Data code completion and validation
  • Grails 2.2 included in the GGTS distribution and available on the dashboard
  • Groovy 2.0.6 compiler now included in the GGTS distribution.

Both tool suites ship on top of the latest Eclipse Juno SR2 maintenance builds (not yet the final Eclipse Juno SR2 release). We still recommend to use the Eclipse-3.8-based versions of STS and GGTS for optimal performance.

The 3.2.0 release is scheduled for early March 2013 - shortly after the Eclipse Juno SR2 release.

To download the distributions, please go visit:
