Groovy 2.1 released

Engineering | Guillaume Laforge | January 25, 2013 | ...

The Groovy team is pleased to announce the release of Groovy 2.1.0.

With over 1.7 million downloads in 2012, a strong ecosystem of successful projects like Grails, Gradle, Spock or Griffon built on Groovy, the Groovy programming language continues its development and adoption, refines existing features and evolves new ones.

In this new release, Groovy 2.1:

  • offers full support for the JDK 7 “invoke dynamic” bytecode instruction and API,
  • goes beyond conventional static type checking capabilities with a special annotation to assist with documentation and type safety of Domain-Specific Languages and adds static type checker extensions,
  • provides additional compilation customization options,
  • features a meta-annotation facility for combining annotations elegantly,
  • and provides various other enhancements and minor improvements.

Please read all the details about the new features and improvements in the Groovy 2.1 release notes document.

You can download Groovy 2.1.0 from the Download area, and have a look at the JIRA tickets we worked on.

The Groovy team is looking forward to your feedback on this new release!
