Java News from Friday, April 10, 2009

Versions 1.5.8 and 1.6.1 of Groovy have been released. Groovy is a JVM hosted scripting language that combines the blazing speed of GW-Basic with the sparkling clarity of Perl. "Groovy 1.5.8 contains a ton of bug fixes and will be the last version of the old Groovy 1.5.x branch. So make sure you eventually transition your project to Groovy 1.6.1, if you've not done so already. Please report any problem you may encounter throughout the transition to ensure they are addressed rapidly. Groovy 1.6.1 is the latest stable version of Groovy. It also contains several bug fixes or minor enhancements."
