This edition is heavily influenced by GR8Conf US, that just took place. Lots of slides, tweets and news.

Grails 3.1.10 was released live from GR8Conf US, with a fair number of annoing bugs fixed

Kyle Boon and Craig Burke are having quite a competition on who gets the most mentions in the Grails Diary. I try to include the relevant issues in this blog, but to even out the score, I'm sorry for the spam like references in the end of this edition :)

Caster.io has a free lesson on Hot to Create a Gradle Plugin by Annyce Davis.

Th eGroovy Podcast did an episode live from GR8Conf US, featuring a large range of the speakers, reflecting on the conference, and news from the Groovy Ecosystem. Annyce Davis has also written a GR8Conf US 2016 Recap .
