Spring and Struts are completely separate projects, although Spring may be used with either version of Struts. You heard correctly that Struts 1 and Struts 2 are completely different frameworks (except for the name).

For Spring I'd learn as recent a version as possible; if you want to be cutting-edge you could start learning Spring 3.0, otherwise 2.5 is a good choice.

Note that Spring includes its own MVC layer, making it unnecessary to learn Struts 2. I still prefer the way Struts 2 works compared to Spring MVC 2.5, and haven't really evaluated Spring MVC 3.0 yet. Struts 2 has a Spring plugin, however, that allows all Struts 2 objects to be created via Spring, so the integration is pretty nice.
