This Week in Grails (2011-13)

Grails 1.4 development is coming along well; Graeme has done some very cool work with AST transformations to make GORM methods available in the bytecode instead of just in the MetaClass, and has also added support for abstract inheritance. Jeff is adding a new findOrCreateWhere() method that has been requested a few times. Luke Daley merged in his Ivy dependency management code rework, and Robert Fletcher’s scaffolding rework looks great. Check out the Roadmap for the current plan for 1.4.

Congratulations to Stéphane Maldini for becoming the latest Grails committer. He contributed several fixes and enhancements and is looking at some new AST transforms for GSPs (in part to help with Groovy++ integration).

GR8Conf is coming up next month and the organizers are publishing interviews with the presenters. They have a few up and the rest will be posted periodically (including mine once I get off my butt and submit mine):
