Joint releases of Groovy 2.4.1 and 2.3.10

The Groovy development team is happy to announce the joint releases of the Groovy 2.4.1 and Groovy 2.3.10 of the Groovy programming language for the Java platform.


Both releases are bug fix releases, and while Groovy 2.4.1 is the latest official stable branch, we thought it might be helpful to some projects who are still on the 2.3.x line to get a final release for that branch. But going forward, the 2.3.x branch won’t see any upcoming release.


You can learn more about all the tickets closed by reading:


For reference, you can also read the release notes of Groovy 2.4 if you haven't had a chance to since the announcement.

Head over to the download section of the new Groovy website to download the binary distribution, or update your dependencies accordingly with those new version numbers.


Thanks a lot for all those who contributed to this release!

Groovy Weekly #58

The past week’s been pretty calm, in terms of news, but a few of them really stood out.


Netflix again leverages Groovy for scripting its user experience API (additional coverage following last week’s announcement).


The Gradleware team delivered Gradle 2.3! Congrats guys!


And closer to home, a very important discussion about moving Groovy into a foundation has started, inviting members and representatives of different foundations to join and offer their views and experience on the matter.

Groovy Weekly #57

So what’s Groovy this week? The Groovy community is still celebrating the 4.5+ million downloads of Groovy last year, is drive testing the upcoming Gradle 2.3, while Greach is announcing its impressive roster of speakers.


But there’s an item of news dear to my heart this week, with the “go to production” message from Dierk about Groovy in Action, second edition! Many times the book has been revised to catch up with the latest and greatest of Groovy, and this new edition will bring you up-to-date with Groovy 2.4, so you can expect the official print and e-book final versions imminently!

Groovy Weekly #56

Congrats to the GrooScript team with the GrooScript 1.0 release! With GrooScript, if you will, you can have a full Groovy experience, from the build (Gradle), backend (Groovy, Grails, Ratpack), mobile (Groovy on Android), up to the front-end web layer with Groovy translated into JavaScript!


Another impressive and widely acclaimed release is the first milestone of Grails 3! You can have a look at the novelties in Grails 3, and watch a screencast about it.


The Ratpack team has also been pretty busy with Ratpack 0.9.13, with over 17k lines of code changed in this release!


Guillaume Laforge also announced that Groovy was downloaded over 4 million times from Maven Central, without even counting the downloads of the binary distributions from Codehaus or Bintray. In total, Groovy will likely be beyond 5 million times in total, compared with 3 millions the past year.
