Dear Spring users,
We are preparing for the Spring Framework 2.0.5 release, scheduled for May 1st. The current 2.0.5 snapshots (build 56 and later, available from http://www.springframework.org/snapshots) serve as release candidates, with two weeks of testing planned before the final 2.0.5 release.
So if you have the chance, please give a recent 2.0.5 snapshot a try in your applications - and let us know whether you've found any issues, major or minor. We also appreciate further feedback on the 2.0.4 release, to be able to address any remaining issues in the 2.0.5 release. We are particularly interested in potential regressions and general compatibility issues, so please try as hard as you can to break an existing Spring application :-)
Please report any issues in our JIRA, after checking that the problem hasn't been reported there already. We'll make sure that we'll address the reports ASAP, giving you a chance to test the fixes in one of the following 2.0.5 snapshots, still in advance of the final 2.0.5 release.
Thanks in advance for your participation in this quality assurance effort! With your help, we'll be able to make 2.0.5 the best possible release.
