Grails 2.0.2 and 1.3.8 were released this week, primarily to address parameter binding issues. See the release notes for 2.0.2 and Jeff’s blog post on the data binding issues. You should also read the SpringSource security advisory CVE-2012-1833 and Marc Palmer’s blog post “Inside the Grails dependency injection binding vulnerability”.
It turns out that the new whitelisting features in 2.0.2 were a bit too aggressive, so expect a 2.0.3 release soon to address that. 1.3.8 isn’t affected since it only fixes the dependency injection issue and updated the url for the central plugin repository.
The path to the Groovy jar in the 2.0.2 lib directory changed, and this affects importing projects in STS. Check out this post for how to update to a version with the fix. Graeme also pointed out that you can copy the lib directory contents from a 2.0.1 install onto the 2.0.2 lib directory.
Marco Vermeulen has updated the Linux releases of 1.3.8 and 2.0.2.
Marc Palmer has been busy, releasing an early version of his “Platform Core Plugin”. Also see this post for more details. And you can get paid support for the plugin through Grailsrocks. Also check out Marc’s post “Hooking up Platform Core Security API to your Security Provider”.
