Asynchronous features, and support for database migration and
reverse engineering. Loading static resources from binary plugins
via the resources plugins is also now supported, alongside support
for binary-only distribution and use of plugins. With Grails 2.0.0
M1, rendering operations are possible on non request threads and
from services and other beans. There is also a list of bug fixes.
More information is available at the Release Notes.


LibreOffice 3.4.2 Released

The third version of the 3.4 LibreOffice branch has been
released. LibreOffice 3.4.2 is identical to the 3.4.2
Release Candidate 3, and can be downloaded

The Document Foundation have announced that this version can be
“deployed for production needs by most enterprises,” although they
advise that large organisations deploying LibreOffice do so in
conjunction with a support partner. The next release, 3.4.3, will
incorporate further stability improvements and security fixes, and
will be released by the end of August.


Google Officially Announce Git Support

After updating
their support FAQ last month
, Google have officially announced
that Google Code now supports Git. Developers who
opt for Git will still have access to the usual Google Project
Hosting features, such as project updates, issue tracking and
VCS-backed wiki. There is also the option to create a server-side
clone of any existing Git repository by clicking the “Create a
clone” button. Like Google Code’s Mercurial implementation, the Git
implementation stores object data in a custom data store built on
the Bigtable distributed storage system.


Netty 3.2.5 is Final!

Netty 3.2.5 is Final! This release adds
getPipeline() to CodecEmbedder, so that a user can modify the
pipeline dynamically, and adds ChannelPipeline.getNames(). It also
fixes a NioWorker write deadlock, and adds deflate-raw support for
HttpContentDecompressor. Netty 3.2.5 Final can be downloaded now. Netty is a NIO
client server framework for developing network applications such as
protocol servers and clients.


Team Calendars 1.2 Extends Notifications

Just two weeks after Atlassian launched Team Calendars 1.1,
Team Calendars 1.2 is now available. This
release extends version 1.1’s notification features, including
updating email notifications, so that the user can now see why they
are receiving the notification. Notifications also include all the
information about repeating events, such as repeat frequency,
repeat interval, and end date. Team Calendars have also been
updated with autowatch functionality, and the option to create
personalised calendar mashups. Team Calendars 1.2 can be downloaded now.
