Dear Spring community,
I’m pleased to announce that Spring Framework 4.3 GA (a.k.a. 4.3.0.RELEASE) is now available from repo.spring.io as well as Maven Central!
In addition to the feature themes mentioned in my 4.3 RC1 announcement, the GA release covers compatibility with several recent third-party releases, in particular: Hibernate ORM 5.2, Jackson 2.8, Netty 4.1, Undertow 1.4, and Tomcat 8.5.2 / 9.0 M6. Also, please note that our Hibernate 3.x support is finally deprecated (even Hibernate 4.x is not actively supported by Red Hat anymore) and that Spring 4.3’s Jackson support requires Jackson 2.6+ now.
