This Week in Grails (2011-12)

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

We finally got the JIRA instances moved from Codehaus to In the old JIRA each plugin was a Component in one huge project, and working with components and the many versions was rather frustrating. Now each plugin gets its own project and developers are free to create components and versions within projects, but it will be a lot more manageable. Much thanks to Peter Ledbrook for managing this project – it was a lot of work over several weeks. There is account and login info here and information for plugin developers here.
