Toshiba Announce Eclipse-Based IDE

Toshiba have announced an Eclipse-based IDE that supports
developing embedded systems built around Toshiba’s TX09 ARM9 and
TX03 ARM Cortex 32-bit microcontrollers. TrueSTUDIO/TX V2.0 is
available in Professional and a free Lite edition. It supports
parallel compilation and multiprocessor debug; and incorporates
UML-based features for speeding development through graphical
modelling. It comes with integrated features for code and source
code review meetings, and a context-aware task management system
for tracking bugs, to-do items and other issues. More information
on the IDE is available at the press release (PDF)

Third Milestone for Virgo 3.0

The third milestone of Virgo 3.0 has been released.
For this release, the shell has been improved to better handle the
new Region implementation, and the Virgo Web Server has been
renamed to Virgo Tomcat Server. More information on the changes is
available at the Release Notes.

Groovy 1.7.10 and 1.8 RC3 Released

Two new release of Groovy are now available:

process, not all of the announced fixes were bundled as part of the
1.7.9 release. These are now incorporated into the Groovy 1.7.10
release. Meanwhile, the third RC for Groovy 1.8 fixes a potential
synchronisation issue that could have affected ExpandoMetaClasses
users, and adds support for overriding package-, doc- or
class-templates in Groovydoc descendant classes.

release, support for Maven3.x has been added, and running multiple
instances of GroovyServ simultaneously on separate ports is
supported. There is also a list of bug fixes.
