Sunday, March 13th, 2011

Lots of job leads this week – 19 items! And quite a few plugin updates. Grails 1.4 development is getting going – Graeme has committed a lot of interesting stuff. And Rob Fletcher’s scaffolding updates look great too. Check out the commits at Github. Also, Groovy 1.8 is getting closer to a final release with this week’s RC2 update. All in all definitely an interesting week.
