We have entered a new month, and this means a new Ratpack release, this time version 0.9.9. It includes many breaking changes, as the minimum JDk version is now 8. It also includes integration to Spring Boot.
Griffon has been officially released in version 2.0.0. Notice that currently, you can access the new documentation at http://new.griffon-framework.org/, and the old (for 1.5.0) at http://griffon.codehaus.org/
Guillaume has posted the slides from his talks at Java One: Groovy in the light of Java 8 and Groovy in 2014 and beyond. I'm guessing Guillaume will write a bit more from the conference in the Groovy Weekly Newsletter.
Dierk König explains that Groovy in Action 2.0 is almost finished! It has been EAP for quite some time :)
Finally, as the very first Grails Diary post was in week 41 of last year, this weeks edition completes a full year of Grails Diaries!
