Spring Security 2.0-M2 Released
This is the second milestone release of Spring Security 2.0. You can download it from Sourceforge:
The changelog can be found here:
For maven users, the jars are available from the Spring milestone repository. For details on how to add this to your project, read Ben Hale's article here:
Please note that this is very much a preview release and is primarily intended to get feedback and ideas from our users. It isn't suitable for beginners.
Not also that several modules have been separated from the core: CAS, (the new) ACL, taglibs and captcha.
I've omitted the generated site directory in this release, as it hasn't changed from M1. Documentation is limited to the contacts and tutorial sample apps, Javadoc, Jira (link above) and, of course, the code. Feel free to post any questions or issues for discussion here.

You mention JavaDocs as part of the release, but I'm unable to locate them in the 2.0M2 ZIP

Reason: Removed zip listing

That is probably a cut and paste error from the last Acegi release. I'd recommend you install the source jars directly in your IDE and access it from there. I'll also be putting up another Maven site on springframework.org soon.

First of all, congratulations for this new release. The configuration is indeed much more succint and easy to understand and maintain!
I'm considering going to SS 2.x for a new project (schedule production release in May 2008). Can I base my development on this? Or would you recommend to hold on a bit? When can we expect a full 2.0.0 release (I've read somewhere March 08...)?

Yup waiting for the final release date
I posted the same question for 2.0M1 and ask the same for 2.0M2. Where is the final version expected, just from a planning perspective a rough date so we can take the call of introducing it or not. Also any documentation available? For some reason the http://www.springframework.org/schem...curity-2.0.xsd is not getting registered in the XML catalogue of eclipse so cannot explore the <Ctrl>+Space for looking at new XML elements.

I would like to use spring-security 2.0 on my project too. I've done some research using the booking-faces sample on Spring Web Flows, but I couldn't get the dao provider working. It would be nice if SWF and SS comes out on the same date.

I've read somewhere that the documentation is only going to be released in RC1? I'd be happy to get a draft version of it (specifically the part that describes the new XSD configuration style...). Otherwise, we'll have to wait patiently for RC1 (release date?). Thanks.

I would also like to ask for some documentation. It's difficult to use this until then.

what is the difference between acegi-security 1.0.6 and the Spring security 2.0-M2?
What should I be using .. Spring security or Acegi-security?

Acegi 1.0.6 is the latest stable release. There is a lot of documentation and examples out there for this version.
Spring Security 2.0-M2 will be a moving target for a bit to come and might not be the best version to learn from.
