This Week in Grails (2013-03)

The Groovy team announced the second release candidate for Groovy 2.1.0 this week, and they’ve already released RC3 since then. This should be the final RC before 2.1.0 final.

The Griffon team released version 1.2.0 this week.

Marc Palmer is doing some interesting experiments with paid Grails plugin development, maintenance and documentation. He’s testing the waters with an e-book for the email-confirmation plugin, and is looking into how interested people are in a book on the resources plugin. And he should have a KickStarter campaign going soon to fund the development effort to clear the backlog of bugs and feature requests for the resources plugin. It’ll be interesting to see if the historically cheap Java-based community will be willing to dig into their wallets 🙂

Greach is this week, it will be Friday and Saturday in Madrid. Tickets are still available. Two tracks, a great lineup of speakers, Madrid. What more could you ask for?

The call for papers for the two GR8Conf conferences ends in a few weeks on February 15th. Get those talk proposals submitted, here for the EU conference and here for the US conference.
