This Week in Grails (2011-48)

There were some blocking issues in the 2.0 RC2 release, so we released RC3 on Friday. Please test this release – a lot of issues have been fixed and we’d like to make sure the 2.0 final release is as stable as possible.

Marc Palmer and I had some fun this week releasing and re-releasing the resources and spring-security-core plugins. Both plugins add filters to web.xml that need to be in particular positions, and if both were installed they would interfere with each other. So I added a feature to the webxml to handle filter-mapping reordering. There were some issues along the way but the latest versions should work well together.

If you haven’t gotten your ticket yet for the Groovy & Grails eXchange time is running out – it’s this week! I’ll be doing a new talk, “Hacking the Spring Security Plugin”, which will go into the details of how the plugin works and approaches you should use to customize its behavior and debug issues.

  1. The routing plugin is in version 1.1.4-SNAPSHOT not in 1.1.2 as you’ve mentioned it.
