This Week in Grails (2012-37)

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Lots of stuff for this week’s post since I was busy last week doing some onsite consulting and didn’t have time to get that one out.

We’ve released version 2.1.1 of Grails, and the Groovy team released versions versions 2.0.2 and 1.8.8. Not to be outdone, the Gradle team released version 1.2 and are planning some cool stuff for 1.3. And the STS team have released version 3.1.0.M1 of STS and GGTS.

If you have an idea for a talk at the 2012 Groovy & Grails eXchange in London, submit it here.
