  • Spring Security Kerberos module release plan

    There was no commit to the project for the last 6 months. The project does not have any stable version released and master branch is 1.0.0.CI-SNAPSHOT .

    So logical question is: What is the status of the project and can we expect official stable release in the near future?

    first of all the good news: The project is not dead.

    I actually worked on it the last days and included some smaller fixes and improvements.

    The highest priority is now to release a RC in the next couple of weeks. I therefore moved some bigger, but still interesting improvements to 1.1, like the IBM support.

    Right now, the only open issue for a RC release is the missing documentation.

    Therefore, feel free to grab the latest code from GitHub:

    And of course, any feedback is highly appreciated and will make a difference. Just create a new issue here: or comment on an existing one.

    Thanks for the patience,

      That is great news.

      In two months we will be deploying our Spring based application using Kerberos authentication in Win 2008R2/2012 environment. I was thinking about using container authentication (leaving Kerberos to Tomcat), but now I feel we will go for Spring Kerberos. Thank you!

        Good to know that this extension is not dead !

        I was also pleased to see the extension uses now the latest version of Spring Framework and Spring Security.

        Would it be possible to publish a RC or even a Snapshot on Spring Maven repository (eg. ?
        That will make things easier for developers... I'm not a big fan to maintain our own build on our Nexus repo.

        IMHO, documentation shouldn't be a blocker to do a RC.
        Your sample web application is straightforward and self explanatory.
        Moreover a release version of this extension will enable us to deploy our application in production.

        Anyway... thanks a lot for this great extension and for the provided features.
