First of all, congratulations again ( as I said in welcome page )
Spring has evolved too much during his five editions , but the part I'm interested in it's spring core and spring beans . Does this fith edition bring any improvements regarding beans ? In my case it's the most used aspect of spring ( as well as spring security ) , and I'm really interesed in knowing any new features , Maybe with streams , and reactive focus, the part of spring beans has been optimized , I don't know .
The book has been updated to reflect any new changes to Spring Framework. We've new chapters on Reactive programming using RxJava and Reactor, and developing reactive RESTful web services using reactive support in Spring Security, Spring Data and the newly introduced Spring WebFlux module.
