Groovy 1.0 Released
Groovy is a dynamic language for the JVM that integrates seamlessly with the Java platform. It offers a Java-like syntax, with language features inspired by Smalltalk, Python or Ruby, and lets your reuse all your Java libraries and protect the investment you made in Java skills, tools or application servers.
2007 is shaping up to be a important year in the evolution of the Groovy language. A number of books either have been released (Groovy in Action) or a slated for publication this year. Last month Big Sky Technologies announced the launch of the aboutGroovy.com portal and the funding of Jochen Theodorou to work full time on Groovy development.
RIFE's wonderful and it's nice integration of Groovy is really worth to be mentioned.
You've come a long way and since you're leading the show, Groovy has steadily improved to what it is now. It's a pity that 3 years ago things were announced too early and too soon so that some people nowadays have the wrong impression. Actually, you should have named this GroovyNG (next generation) ;-)

I trademarked the "NG" suffix in the Java world, my lawyers will be in touch shortly.
