New Release

Groovy 1.8.6 out

Chris Mayer
Groovy.1

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
when
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.

The full Groovy 1.8.6 JIRA release
notes
are provided here, and if you’re new to the Groovy
revolution, then you can download it here. It’ll
keep you busy whilst Groovy 2.0’s beta is in the pipeline.
