This Week in Grails (2011-32)

RabbitMQ messaging support for Cloud Foundry was announced this week. Check out this tutorial from Chris Harris using the Cloud Foundry and RabbitMQ plugins.

SpringSource Tool Suite 2.8.0.M1 was released this week and it includes support for Grails 2.0 M1 among other updates and fixes.

There’s an interesting new plugin available which provides “A basic Shiro User Interface” version 1.0-beta3. I’m interested not because I’ll ever use it, but because you might, and this will shift some of the support pressure off the Spring Security plugins and onto the Shiro plugin 🙂

The Groovy team is working on moving their source from SVN to Github. Check out this initial import.
