Finally managed to compile a three week edition of the Diary.

The Grails team at OCI has been busy, both writing new guides and releasing bugfix versions. Grails version 3.2.5 and GORM 6.0.6 has been released with bug fixes and minor improvements. Also Grails version 3.1.15, is out. For Gorm, the first milestone release is out for Gorm 6.1 M1. The manual has a section on what is new in Gorm 6.1, and it comes with lots of nice improvements for Multi-Tenancy, Automatic Escaping for HQL Queries, Support for Native SQL Queries, and a few updates for both MongoDB and Neo4j.

new guides are available on guides.grails.org.

XPur, a StAX XML parser for Groovy, for parsing huge XML files with Groovy is out in version 0.5 is out. You can find the website for the project at xpur.org.

Thanks to Sergio del Amo and the Groovy Calamari Newsletter, I found Yaroslav Yermilov article on What Mr. Spock would possibly say about modern unit testing: pragmatic and emotional overview. The article has some very nice tips and tricks on using Spock including some of the new 1.1 features.

Eric Wendelin has made tab completion for Gradle in Bash and Zsh. You find the guide along with the project at github.com/eriwen/gradle-completion.

Marco Vermuelen is trying to get the OpenJDK community to publish binaries on SDKMan. First contact is their mailinglist

Daniel Sun continues to tweet new exciting features for the Parrot parser for Groovy. A couple of the things he has done is up support for standard for loops:

for(int i = 0, j = 10; i < j; i++, j--) {..}
where the old only supports limited for loops, i.e.
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) {..}
There is also support for Multi-Assignment, making the following print of the Fibonacci series possible
def (int a, int b) = [0, 1]
while (b < 10) {
	println b
	(a, b) = [b, a + b]
}
Jesper Steen Møller has assisted with ported the Parrot parser to Java 7, not limiting it to Java 8.

For Grooscript, the gradle plugin is out in version 1.3.0 is out! The artifactId has been renamed to gradle-plugin.

Gretty, the advanced gradle plugin for running web-apps on jetty and tomcat, is out in version 1.4.1, and is now compatible with Gradle 3.3.

Conference wise, most speakers has been announced for Greach in the end of March, and the agenda is shaping up.
