Plus, three new Grails plugins bring Geolocation and ModalBox functionality to Grails apps, and provide an insight into your applications.

IronRuby Changes to the Apache License

IronRuby 1.1 is out now.

IronRuby is an open source implementation of the Ruby
programming language for .NET and Silverlight. This release adds
support for .NET extension methods in IronRuby, and is now licensed
under the Apache License (Version 2), rather than the Microsoft
Public License. There is also a list of bug fixes.

Please note that IronRuby 1.1 is not fully backwards compatible
with IronRuby 1.0; and no longer supports .NET 2.0 SP1. NET 3.5 is
the minimum requirement for IronRuby 1.1.

First Release for Spring AMQP

The first milestone release of the Spring
project is now available.

Spring AMQP makes commonly occurring Spring idioms available to
developers working on AMQP-based messaging solutions, by a proving
a template as a high-level abstraction for sending and receiving
messages. Message-driven POJOs are also supported.

Spring AMQP can be downloaded now for both Java and .NET.

    Properties. The plugin uses the Dynamic Controller plugin to
    modularise the controller actions as mixins.
  • Geolocation plugin brings support for the HTML5’s
    geolocation feature to your Grails app. With this plugin, the
    user’s current position will be retrieved and can be tested with a
    Google map widget, in the plugin’s test page. The Geolocation is
    represented by the Geolocation domain class, which implements the
    official W3C specifications.
  • ModalBox is a new plugin for adding the ModalBox
    JavaScript technique to Grails applications. The current version is
    0.3, which comes with functionality for opening standard ModalBox
