We're pleased to announce that Spring 1.2.3 has just been released. This is a bugfix and minor enhancement release, fixing a number of issues related to the application context startup sequence and introducing various minor new features.
All Spring 1.2.2 users are encouraged to upgrade to Spring 1.2.3, in particular if using factory methods and/or auto-proxy creation (as used by the transaction annotation support). Full backwards compatibility with Spring 1.2.1 should be restored in that area.
As always, for a full list of enhancements and fixes, please see the changelog.
