I'm very pleased to report here the very recent release of Groovy 1.6, which happened under the SpringSource umbrella, since the acquisition of G2One by SpringSource.
Groovy 1.6 is a very important milestone for the project, bringing tremendous performance improvements making Groovy the fastest dynamic language for the JVM, as well as several new powerful features adding more weapons to your dynamic language arsenal.
In particular, beyond the usual bug fixes and minor enhancements, let me mention the following novelties:
If you wish to learn more about Groovy, and in particular Groovy 1.6, you should definitely consider attending SpringOne Europe, in April, where sessions on Groovy and Graills will be presented.
You could also choose to attend the GR8 Conference, a conference dedicated to Groovy, Grails and Griffon, organized by the Danish JUG and SpringSource! You'll learn more about the event on the conference website or by following its twitter account. The conference takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark, in May, and will provide several practical sessions and hands-on labs to get you up-to-speed on those great Groovy-based technologies.
