Groovy Weekly #63

The big news today is that Groovy has now passed the vote for entering the Apache Software Foundation incubator! Thus, in the coming weeks and months, while going through the incubation process, you can expect some changes in terms of infrastructure (moving sources, issue tracker, mailng-lists, etc) to be taking place, but don’t worry, we’ll keep you informed along the way.


This past week, we’ve had some new releases of Groovy, as well as the second release candidate for Grails 3! Grails 3 is really really close now, get ready, it’s gonna rock the house!


Alongside the Groovy releases, big efforts have been made with the new Groovy documentation. Be sure to check it out, and to help us further improve that documentation


Last but not least, Groovy has been submitted for nomination for the JAX 2015 innovation award, so we encourage you to vote for Groovy for the JAX innovation award!

Groovy 2.4.3 out and entering Apache's incubator

The Groovy team is happy to announce another 2.4 release, with Groovy 2.4.3.

We noticed some regressions that needed our attention, and we decided to release rapidly after our recent 2.4.2 release of last week. Please upgrade to 2.4.3 if you're on the 2.4.x line.

You can read about the tickets resolved in our changelog:
http://groovy-lang.org/changelogs/changelog-2.4.3.html

And you can download the Groovy distribution as usual on the new Groovy website.

I'd also like to announce that Groovy passed the vote to enter the Apache Software Foundation Incubator! In the coming weeks, we'll be through the incubation process, likely for a few months, where we'll be moving things around (sources, JIRA, mailing-lists, etc), so you can expect a bit of change, but we'll keep you posted on how we progress along.

Groovy 2.4.2 and 2.3.11 released

The Groovy development team is happy to announce the bug fix releases of Groovy 2.4.2 and Groovy 2.3.11.

For the 2.4.2 release, some key performance improvements have found their way in static compilation mode, so you might be happy to see your programs snappier!

Along with those two releases, you'll notice lots more documentation has been written on the new Groovy website, as well as important updates to existing topics. You might want to have a look at the following new or improved sections:

Note that it might be the last releases under the Codehaus era, as Groovy is currently being voted for incubation at the Apache Software Foundation. The vote is ongoing right now, as I write those lines, so we should know pretty soon what's the outcome, and if Groovy is accepted or not! So far... only positive votes!

You can: 

Thanks a lot to all who contributed to those releases, and thanks for your support of Groovy and your positive feedback on our move to Apache!

Keep on groovy'ing!
