I don’t usually make a lot of noise about a beta release, but there’s some new security features I’d like everybody to test drive (along with a bunch of bug fixes).  Also, there’s a few backward incompatibilities to be aware of.  New features?

  • SMIME integration.  You can now send/receive SMIME encrypted and/or signed messages over HTTP.  This is great if you have the requirement of encrypting message bodies.
  • Subresource locator support for client proxy framework. Thanks Peter Murray for this!
  • Jackson 1.8.5 upgrade

As always, to download and see documentation follow the links from our website.  Take a look at our Jira release notes.  You might also want to check out the Migration guide to view what has broken as far as backward compatibility.
