This Week in Grails (2012-47)

The big news of this week is the updated site. This was a big effort and a combination of work by VMware employees and community members, including Eric Berry, Damien Vitrac, and Craig Burke. The site is a Grails application and is open source – the repo is here if you have a fix or a new feature and want to send a pull request. We track issue in JIRA here so if you see anything weird let us know.

As part of the site upgrade, we’ve implemented a new system for submitting plugins. Instead of mailing the dev list, submit it with this form. Disqus is enabled throughout the site, so you can use that to make suggestions and ask questions about submitted plugins, and comment on other parts of the site too.

The winners of the Grails48 hackathon have been announced. Congrats to the team at OSOCO for their 1st-place finish!

The early access edition of Programming Grails was updated this week with three new chapters, for a total of ten. Only two more to go 🙂
