Obviously, I'm biased, but...

Despite some claims to the effect, Spring is not legacy. Spring is as alive and well today as it ever has been...even more so, perhaps. Spring addresses several concerns that aren't addressed (at least not adequately) elsewhere, such as social and API integration, security (Spring Security outshines and integrates with all other Java security options), WebSocket/STOMP, big data, non-relational databases, reactive programming, etc, etc. And, although my book only barely touches on the subject, Spring Boot has made Spring an even more attractive platform to develop applications with.

So yeah...if you don't have any projects that use Spring, it's still worth learning Spring. There's a wealth of awesomeness and we're still cranking out more awesome stuff all the time. (In fact, just today I published: https://spring.io/blog/2014/10/22/introducing-spring-sync).
