This Week in Grails (2011-07)

The big news of the week was the 1.3.7 release of Grails. This was a fairly small release with some important fixes, and will most likely be the last 1.3.x release. Groovy 1.7.8 and 1.8 RC1 were also released, so there’s a lot of interesting stuff to look at there too.

The Spring I/O conference in Madrid was also this week and judging from the tweets it was a great conference. Google Translate has been very helpful this week 🙂
