Last week, Codehaus has gone the way of the dodo. The lights are switching off. A page is turning.
So please remember about our infrastructure changes, as we move the Groovy project through the incubation process at Apache: the JIRA issue tracker has moved, and don’t forget that the Groovy mailing-lists are also moving. The Apache Git repository is now the new mainline, but you can contribute pull requests on the new Apache Groovy Github mirror. Be sure to update all your bookmarks, and register on the new mailing-list!
Beside that, there’s one particular item in the news below that I’d like to highlight here, that’s the great and thourough presentation on Spock. If you want to learn the latest and greatest about Spock 1.0, that’s the slide deck you must have a look at!
