There is definitely the dist folder in this zip but can't figure this out : where the F*ck is the spring.jar or what is its new name??

Where are those 3 files?

Looking at the documentation (readme.txt) the framework is no longer contained in a spring.jar file anymore.
It says the structure has changed and to go here for updated examples on how to use the new structure:

I know bunch of a people will tell ya, neeee, you should switch to new ways of building the spring projects, bal bla bla... especially by using greatest maven building tool which stores all the required files in a specific folder AWAY from a eclipses workspace or servers folder. After having spent pretty much of nights making it happen, I decided to do that step by step approach from the springsource which in fact is not updated with ongoing developments.
Ok, so, hopefully this can help some guys go further and not give up on spring.
I find this tool of springsource pretty cool to find any of your required jars. Frankly, finding the exact spring.jar is probably not a good idea, as you might end up playing with the old versions which mixed with newer version of some other classes might cause some bugs.
I used to put each of the imported packaged from spring example into search and got myself the latest version jar file which offers its implementation.
I havent completed this yet, but I think it might be useful to some of the guys.
