Spring Framework 4.3.5, 4.2.9 and 3.2.18 available now

It is my pleasure to announce that the Spring Framework 4.3.5, 4.2.9 and 3.2.18 maintenance releases are available now.

4.3.5 is a significant refinement release with 37 enhancements (including e.g. WebSocket support for the recently released Jetty 9.4) and several bug fixes, serving as the basis for the upcoming Spring Boot 1.4.3 release.

Please note that the 4.2.9 and 3.2.18 bug fix releases are the last in their respective line, with 4.2.x being superseded by 4.3.x now and 3.2.x reaching its EOL point. Going forward, we expect all users to upgrade to 4.3.5+ for further support.
