As the old adage goes, one needs to publish or be forgotten. It's been quite some time since we gave you Pro Spring 2.5; in that time, Spring 3.0, then 3.0.1 came out and we're all eagerly awaiting Spring 3.1.
Now, I've been fighting off the writing bug for quite some time, but no more. I am starting work on the new Spring "book", except this time, it will not be a book at all. I will publish the PDFs of the various chapters here on our blog and I will also run the best parts of the text in the Open Source Journal--yes, the printed edition.
So, keep an eye on this space for the first chapter--give me 2 - 3 weeks from now!
