Java SE 7 support has been implemented in this version
Spring, one of the popular application development frameworks for enterprise Java, used by developers to create high performing, easily testable, reusable code without any lock-in, is now at version 3.2.Highlights of Spring Framework 3.2:
• Refined Java SE 7 support has been implemented, within the framework as well as through upgrades to CGLIB 3.0, ASM 4, and AspectJ 1.7.
• Concurrency refinements across the framework have been added, avoiding the use of synchronization wherever possible, in particular for scoped/prototype beans;
• @Autowired and @Value can now be used as meta-annotations, for example to build custom injection annotations in combination with specific qualifiers;
• Support for custom @Bean definition annotations in @Configuration classes has been implemented.
A complete list of changes and updates can be found in the official announcement.
