Groovy 1.8.0 is final!
After four betas and four release candidates, the Groovy team
have announced version 1.8.0. This final release introduces new
Domain-Specific Language authoring capabilities, built-in JSON
support, and new functional programming aspects of closures.
Currying improvements have been backported to recent releases of
Groovy version 1.7, and new AST transformations have been
introduced, which allows the user to hook into the process of the
Groovy compiler reading source code, building AST from it and
putting the AST into bytecode. More information on all the changes
in 1.8.0 is available at the Release Notes.
