Releases 3 and 4 of Spring Integration have brought a whole slew of new features, ranging from components to configuration options, all tailored to increase the power of the framework and its ease of use.
The most significant enhancement being, of course, the ability of writing completely XML-free enterprise integration applications, using Spring Integration, and Spring Boot, a significant amount of time will be dedicated to that, and you will see a few demos that illustrate the power of the new facilities.
But certainly, the new additions amount to more than that, and you are welcome to learn about it all!
