First Look at Spring Data JPA 1.1 Series

Versions 1.0.1 and 1.1.0.M1 of the Spring Data JPA project have been released. Spring Data JPA 1.0.1 contains bug fixes, including a fix for pagination for queries using group-by clause, and no longer loads the entity, which should improve the performance of SimpleJpaRepository.exists(…). The sources have been reformatted with the Spring Data Eclipse formatter.

This release can be used alongside Spring Data MongoDB 1.0.0.M, as they both refer to the same version of Spring Data Commons. More information on both releases is available at the Changelog.
