I just read that the “non final release” spring artifacts for maven 2 won’t be uploaded to the main maven repository. The new location for the “non final” artifacts is now:
If you would like to use the newer 2.1 artifacts (right now 2.1-m1) you will have to add this repository to your project pom or maven settings:
<name>Non final springframework artifacts</name>
Please be sure to allow releases, since in maven versioning 2.1-m1 is a release and not a snapshot. Since the repository is stored in a subversion repository, you can also use the URL above to checkout the entire repository and have it locally.
