Spring Social Twitter 1.0.3 Released

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.

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.
