Dear Spring Community,
we are happy to announce the next major release of our Eclipse-based tooling today: The Spring Tool Suite 3.0.0 and the Groovy/Grails Tool Suite 3.0.0.
As you may have noticed from following the milestone builds for our 3.0 release cycle, we are now shipping two distributions:
- The Spring Tool Suite is best suited for developers using Spring and Java.
- The Groovy/Grails Tool Suite is focused on providing the best experience for Groovy and Grails developers.
Both tool suites ship on top of the latest Eclipse Juno release from June this year.
And both tool suites are now fully open-sourced and componentized into separate projects at GitHub.
Please take a look at the full announcement here: http://blog.springsource.org/2012/08...-and-at-github

Detailed new and noteworthy notes can be found here: STS/GGTS 3.0.0 New & Noteworthy
FAQ for the 3.0.0 release can be found here: STS/GGTS 3.0.0 FAQ
We recommend to start with STS and GGTS 3.0.0 using a fresh vanilla download of the distributions or an installation from the Eclipse Marketplace into a vanilla Eclipse JEE installation. Manually upgrading an existing STS 2.9.x or older installation is not recommended and is not available through "Check for Updates". Automatic updates will be available again for future releases beyond 3.0.0.
