Spring Social 1.0.0.RC2 for Twitter and Facebook Released

Spring Social 1.0.0.RC2 has been released. This project allows users to connect Java applications to SaaS providers, for example Twitter, or Facebook. With this update, Spring Social now handles the case where multiple local users are matched during a provider sign-in attempt. ProviderSignInController also handles the scenario where the user denies authorisation.

The Spring Social Facebook and Spring Social Twitter projects have also made their 1.0.0.RC2 releases. Spring Social Facebook 1.0.0 RC2 adds offset and limit parameters to many API methods, to support paging through results, in addition to some bug fixes and other improvements, which are listed in full at the Changelog. Meanwhile, Spring Social Twitter 1.0.0 RC1 adds support for paging and cursoring for operations that return paged or cursored data lists. More information is available at the Spring Social Twitter Changelog.
