This Week in Grails (2011-39)

Graeme announced that the release date for Grails 2.0 has been pushed back to November since we’re integrating Spring 3.1 and their schedule has slipped. This is a bummer for users who want to get their hands on the 2.0 final release, but good news since we’ll have some extra time to fix more bugs and polish things.

The Gradle team has started their own “This Week in Gradle” series. This is great news for me since I don’t actively follow things in the Gradle space (yet anyway) but a weekly summary will be very useful to keep up on where things are headed. Add their RSS feed to your favorite RSS reader to be automatically notified of new posts.

The Groovy development team will increase by one this week. Cédric Champeau will be starting Monday as a Groovy developer at SpringSource. This is great news for Groovy.


If you want to keep up with these “This Week in Grails” posts you can access them directly via their category link or in an RSS reader with the feed for just these posts.
