This weeks Diary comes from Denmark, while the GR8conf US is currently taking place in Minneapolis. I could not attend, but will instead make the trip abroad for SpringOne 2GX this September. Have a wonderfull conference if you are one of the lucky attendees at GR8conf US!

The Groovy Team has really been busy this last week: releasing twice! First Groovy 2.3.5 was released, including upward compatibility, especially usefull for running new Groovy code with an older version of Groovy - fx in Gradle plugins build with 2+ version on an older version of Gradle. The release notes for version 2.3.5 is available here and for version 2.3.6 here.. Both versions are bugfix releases on the 2.3 branch. The release of Groovy 2.4 is getting closer, with the release of 2.4.0-Beta-2, you can find the release notes here - please start testing :)

Jorge Franco is getting interesting features ready in the Grooscript project and its Grails plugin: Version 0.5 includes working with rest in a gsp: Creating a REST application, and version 0.6 adds Websockets support. Both features require Grails 2.4. There is even now a Grooscript version of the popular 2028 game.

If you are familiar with Spock, then one of the absolute best presentations of Spock is given by Rob Fletcher in the video from GR8conf EU, it is definitely worth watching! (See the videos section for thee link)
