Another exciting week!
The problem with a weekly post is that new and exciting stuff happens all the time, and just as soon as we'd put last week's post to bed ... a barrage of new and exciting stuff happened! In the last 24 hours alone we've seen three major projects updated - SpringSource Tool Suite, Spring Roo, and Spring Web Services. If only we could start every week like this one!
- The SpringSource Tool Suite (STS) 2.5.2 has been released, along with the numerous other fixes, this version also bundles the latest version of Spring Roo, 1.1.1, which...
- ...was also just released! Spring Roo 1.1.1 is now available for download and includes over 250 improvements since Roo 1.1.0, including a doubling of performance; far better GWT support; VMforce support; Google App Engine data store support; usability
improvements and more. See Ben Alex's post for more details.
- tcServer 2.1.1 has been released!
- Spring Web Services 2.0 has also been released! This release has been a year in the making, and brings many new features, including improved Java 5 support and an improved @Endpoint programming model. For details, see Arjen Poutsma's post.
