It is my pleasure to announce that Spring Framework 4.2.1 is available from repo.spring.io and Maven Central. This first maintenance release in the 4.2 line contains a wide range of fixes for regressions and other issues reported against 4.2 GA.

4.2.1 also contains minor enhancements: refinement of our Jackson support (see Sébastien’s updated blog post), meta-annotation processing improvements (@AliasFor), third-party dependencies alignment (including Hibernate 5.0 GA).

We strongly recommend an immediate upgrade to 4.2.1 for all 4.x users. The Spring Framework team is now working towards Spring Framework 4.2.2 around mid-October, which will be the foundation for the upcoming Spring Boot 1.3 GA release. We will also release 4.1.8 at the same time: if there is anything you’d like to get fixed in the 4.1.x branch still, now is the time to raise it!
