What is the Spring Framework community working on these days? Are there particular features in development that are exciting or noteworthy?

Even though I'm an "insider", I'm not necessarily in the loop on everything that's going on, so any answer I give will likely be incomplete. But a few things come to mind...most of which are already announced, so they're not really big secrets...just exciting stuff.

* I just released Spring Sync 1.0.0.M1 yesterday morning. Spring Sync enables efficient communication and data synchronization between clients (JavaScript/mobile) and a Spring backend.
* Spring Cloud supports developing applications built around a microservices architecture, enabling microservices to easily discover and consume each other. (There's more to it than that, but as I said, I'm not fully in the loop on that.)
* Spring XD released 2.0.0.M1 recently. Spring XD is a runtime (e.g., server) project that lets you define data flows that pull in data from a "source", optionally transform it, and write it to a "sink". In between, a tap can read the data as it flows through for analysis. It's commonly described as a way to suck in data from various sources into HDFS for big data purposes, but it's also suitable for "small data" integration needs.
* Reactor provides a reactive programming model. I'm less familiar with this project, but becoming very familiar and looking forward to trying it out in a project soon.

And, of course, Spring Boot is (IMO) the most exciting thing that's happened to Spring since...pretty much ever.
