Burt Beckwith pointed to a cute feature: The Upstream Tracker. Check out all the changes for each Grails version.

Not that power-rankings are useful for much, it is still a pleasure to see Groovy placed at number 8 in this german ranking. In the latest TIOBE index, Groovy is placed at number 49.

This week has again provided a wealth of cool new releases. One of my favorites Geb, which is out in version 0.10.0. The Grails plugin for Geb has also been updated accordingly.

Gradle is out with a new Release candidate 2.2 rc-1. Along the Gradle path, Cedric has released the Groovy Android plugin for Gradle in version 0.3.1.

Project Reactor has a new milestone release: 2.0.0.M1 with Reactive Streams integration.
