This Week in Grails (2012-27)

The big news of this week was the Grails 2.1.0 release. No support yet for Groovy 2.0 – that will be available in Grails 2.2 – but this release greatly enhances the Maven support, adds the Grails Wrapper feature, and installs the cache plugin by default in new apps (note that the cache plugins all work with Grails 2.0 and higher).

I released some plugin updates this week: the app-info plugin (“Updates for the Grails App Info plugin” blog post here), the console plugin, and the spring-security-cas plugin. To coincide with the Grails 2.1 release, I also released the 1.0.0 versions of the cache, cache-ehcache, and cache-redis plugins.

Version 2.7.0 of the Groovy-Eclipse STS plugin was released this week. Check out the New and Noteworthy
