Java News from Tuesday, November 22, 2005

The Mozilla Project has released Bugzilla 2.20, an open source issue tracking system based on MySQL and Perl. Despite the apparently small version number change (the previous version was 2.18), this is a major release with many new features including:

Version JSR 4 of Groovy has been posted. Groovy is a JVM hosted scripting language that combines the speed of GW-Basic with the clarity of Perl. This release include really major bug fixes, the sort that always make me wonder how anyone was using this product before now and also wonder what else is still lurking unmentioned.

Version 5.5.2 of SuperWaba, an open source Java virtual machine for handheld operating systems including PalmOS and Windows CE devices, has been released. This is a bug fix release. SuperWaba is published under the LGPL.
