The Spring Blog
Don't forget that Spring users can ask questions in the community forum and identify issues in JIRA as well. Please keep up the good work so that we can continue to make all the Spring projects better and better. European developers can learn more about Spring 3.0 at the one day S2G Forum in Munich on March 18th, or at the other S2G Forums in London and Amsterdam (dates to be announced soon).
Dear Spring Community,
I'm pleased to announce that the 1.0.2 maintenance release of Spring BlazeDS Integration, the open source solution for building Spring-powered RIAs with Adobe Flex, is now available.
Along with a number of bug fixes and minor enhancements, we have added full support for using Spring Security 3 to secure a Flex application using the same integration mechanisms as we've previously provided only for Spring Security 2.0.x. In order to effectively demonstrate this support, we've added an additional profile to the Test Drive's Maven build that will configure the application to use Spring 3 and Spring Security 3. See the reference guide for details on how to trigger this alternate profile.
We're pleased to an announce the release of Spring Batch 2.1.0. Thank you to all the people who have been tracking the milestones and providing feedback.

During the months of development we have rebased (and almost entirely rewritten) version 1 of the Groovy-Eclipse plugin, with the goal of offering first class Groovy support in the Eclipse IDE, comparable to the experience Java developers have in Eclipse.
The most important new features that Groovy-Eclipse 2.0.0 provides are:
We're pleased to an announce the release of Spring Security 3.0.0.
Thanks to everyone in the community who has helped out by testing the milestone and release candidate versions and providing feedback.
Look out for compatible releases of Spring Security Extensions projects (such as our Kerberos support) in the new year.
