The Groovy developer team and myself are proud and delighted to
announce the final release of Groovy 1.0.
A lot of passion and energy has been put in this new version after two
release candidates that have been tested against real-world projects:
on a mission-critical insurance application, on the XWiki 2nd
generation wiki engine, as well as on the RIFE framework and through
the Spring 2.0 scripting integration.
We hope you will enjoy this release as much as we enjoyed working on
it. Let me thank the whole Groovy team and all the past Groovy
committers for their hard work -- too many persons to name everybody!
Big thanks to all our users who have been helping us spot bugs, answer
questions on the lists, or contribute documentation and ideas. It's
been a wonderful experience to work with you all to deliver this
important milestone of the Groovy project.
On behalf of the whole team, I also seize this opportunity to wish you
all the best for this new year. May 2007 be a groovy year! If you
haven't used Groovy yet, make sure that learning Groovy is on your
list of resolutions for 2007! And if that's the case, and you wish to
learn Groovy or to dive deeper, you should certainly read "Groovy in
Action ", the Groovy reference book published by Manning:
