Groovy 1.8.2 and 1.9 Beta 3 provide performance optimisation of the primitive type arithmetics.

Fans of the Java Virtual Machine language ‘Groovy’ will be pleased to know that the development team has released versions 1.8.2 and 1.9 Beta 3 with the highlight of the releases being overall performance optimisation of the primitive type arithmetics. Moreover numerous bugs have also been fixed, with the full run down, as always available in the release notes.

Also Groovy has now completed the migration to the distributed version control system Git, with the intention to also provide a mirror on GitHub making the distribution of new releases much smoother.

Groovy is a dynamic language for the Java Platform. Groovy code is dynamically compiled to JVM bytecode and interoperates with other Java code and libraries. Groovy can be downloaded for free at the project´s homepage.
