This Week in Grails (2011-51)

This week was a bit quieter than last – it’d be hard to top the release of Grails 2.0. Things seem to be going very well with a few bumps, and the consensus seems to be that people are psyched about the new release.

The Groovy team released Groovy 1.8.5 and 2.0 Beta 2. Looks like Invoke Dynamic support, Static Type Checking and initial work on static compilation are coming along.

If you’re in the Boston area, I’ll be doing a talk at NEJUG on January 12th on what’s new in Grails 2.0 and Groovy 1.8.
