  • Spring Framework 2.1 M2 Released

    (2007/5/31) - We're pleased to announce that Spring Framework 2.1 M2 has been released. Here is Juergen's original announcement:


    Dear Spring Community,

    I'm pleased to announce that Spring 2.1 M2 has been released!

    This is the second milestone release in the Spring 2.1 series, introducing refinements in the annotation config support as well as support for AspectJ load-time weaving and various further new features.

    This release also introduces a revised structure for Spring's module jars, now prepared for OSGi. Note that Hibernate 2.1 support has been dropped: Spring generally requires Hibernate 3.1 or higher now.

    Please see the changelog and JIRA roadmap for more details on the new features introduced in this release.

    FYI, we have also released a 2.0.6 snapshot, containing backported fixes from 2.1 M2. Please give this snapshot a try as a drop-in replacement for 2.0.5! The official 2.0.6 release is scheduled for June 15th.

    I think I'm not the only person who doesn't understand / get much information about new features of a product when looking at the JIRA roadmap. So it'll be very useful if somebody comes up with a table saying what we cannot (or find it difficult to) do with 2.0 but easily do with 2.1.

      Hibernate 2.1 support

      In the change log for the new Milestone there´s following mentioned:
      "removed support for Hibernate 2.1; Spring's Hibernate support generally requires Hibernate 3.1 or higher now"

      Will there be no more support for Hibernate 2.1 or is it just removed from the standard spring libraries?
