This Week in Grails (2012-18)

The details for SpringOne 2GX 2012 are now online, it will be in Washington, DC this year, October 15th-18th.

The MongoDB plugin went 1.0 this week.

Jeff and I have been working on the cache plugin, which uses the new Spring cache abstraction and isn’t coupled to a particular implementation. The ‘core’ plugin has an in-memory implementation, but you’ll want to use one of the extension plugins for a more robust version. These currently include the Ehcache and Redis plugins and we’re working on one that uses Gemfire. All three plugins are available now and documentation will be available soon.

STS 3.0.0.M1 was released this week.
