Groovy 1.8.6 out
The increasingly popular object-oriented alternative to Java gets a minor release.
With the majority of the Groovy brigade focusing intently on the
Groovy 2.0 beta, the development team ushered in a small update for
the Java-alternative language.
Groovy 1.8.6 is now available to the masses, bringing in minor
features but, by in large, is mostly a maintenance release.
The release fixes numerous bugs, such as an errors
using groovysh with
the verbose option
(-v). In terms of new features, there’s a new GDK method:
Object.contains() with contains as a
DGM method for primitive arrays.
