This Week in Grails (2012-38)

We released Grails 2.2 RC1 this week. It has initial support for artifact namespaces, and uses Groovy 2.0. Please start looking now to make sure that your applications and plugins work with Grails 2.2 and Groovy 2.0 so we can identify and fix issues before the final release. Peter Lebrook pointed out that some plugin code is failing to compile in Groovy 2.0 due to it being stricter in certain ways.

The Groovy team released version 2.0.4 to address some issues in 2.0.3.

There has been a lot of interest in the upcoming Grails Hackathon November 9th-11th. It will be coordinated online but some local user groups are getting together to work in-person.

The dates for the 2013 Greach conference in Madrid have been announced – January 25th-26th.

The second pre-release version of Programming Grails is now available; there are four new chapters (for a total of seven). Download the updated version from your O’Reilly account.
