Spring Actionscript version 0.8 released!

Get the full story at herrodius blog:

read the new documentation site front to back:

For all people upgrading from an older version and haven't done so, make sure you change the namespace declarations in your configuration files! Failing to do so will prevent springactionscript from working properly. (well, it won't work at all actually :))
This is what your XML should look like:

<objects xmlns=""


That's the most important part to check.
