This Week in Grails (2012-04)

Peter Ledbrook started a HOWTO series this week for Grails; the first one is on upgrading to Grails 2.0 and there’s also a HOWTO on writing HOWTOs.

We could use your help finding invalid JIRA issues (e.g. already fixed or no longer an issue). Check out the section “Reviewing issues” in the wiki page on contributing to Grails for how to use the new “Last Reviewed” and “Flagged” fields.

Tomas Lin wrote up his experiences deploying Grails applications to AppFog. It’s great to know that there’s another viable cloud provider for Grails developers.

STS 2.9.0.M2 was released this week. Check out the new and noteworthy PDF for what’s been updated in the Groovy, Grails, and Gradle support.

I released a new plugin this week, to support using Ratpack in a Grails application. Thanks to James Williams for his post that got me started and inspired the plugin. And within a day there was already a blog post by Matthias Hryniszak on using the plugin.
