Groovy 1.0 Released

Bookmarks
Groovy 1.0 was officially released today after last month's release candidate. To quote the release announcement:

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.

Uses of Groovy include the Grails web application framework, XWiki, and Spring 2.0 scripting integration.

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.

    I really wonder, why you've removed RIFE from the enumeration as found in the original press release (while preserving the comma ;))?

    RIFE's wonderful and it's nice integration of Groovy is really worth to be mentioned.

    RIFE has been a long time user of Groovy, and Geert's feedback has also always been very interesting. He even helped us test drive this final release, to be sure no nasty bugs were lying around. RIFE is a great framework that deserve the good press and increased usage that arose the past year. Congrats Geert for such a great framework!

    Thanks a lot for your kind words Guillaume, but this announcement is about Groovy!! You finally made 1.0, CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    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.
