Greetings Apache Geode Community-
I am pleased to announce the release of *Spring Session Data Geode*
2.0.0.RC1. More details can be found in the official release announcement
Since 2.0.0.M2, *Spring Session* for Apache Geode supports PDX
serialization of the HTTP session state.
In this release, I have added a new sample  that demonstrates how
to use *Spring
Framework* "*session*" and "*request*" scoped proxy beans  when *Spring
Session* is used to manage your HttpSession, and how that behaves
accordingly. This sample was based on a question  from *StackOverflow*.
Finally, if you have not seen my recent blog post on the "*differences
between Spring Data Geode and **Spring Data GemFire" *, be sure to check
it out. The same principles apply equally to *Spring Session* for Apache
Geode and *Spring Session* for Pivotal GemFire as well!
