Dear Spring community,
I'm pleased to announce that Spring Web Services 1.5.0 RC2 has been released! This release candidate contains new documentation, and some minor bug fixes. Check the changelog for more details.
Spring-WS 1.5.0 RC2 is the second milestone in the 1.5 series. The 1.5.0 series is 95% backwards compatible, though support for Java 1.3 has been dropped, in favor of Java 1.6. Java 1.6 is required to build.
The next release in this branch will be 1.5.0, to be released around the 28th of March. After 1.5.0 final has been released, there will be a 1.0.4, backporting all bugfixes in the 1.5 branch.
For Maven users, please note that this release is not published at the central maven repository. Instead it is published on Amazon's S3 service, like all Spring milestones. To use it, add the following repository to your POM:
