Groovy 1.0 released

Groovy 1.0 has finally been released, and is available for download from the Groovy home page.

For those of you who didn’t read my last blog post on it, Groovy is a dynamic language which runs on the Java platform and integrates very nicely with Java itself.

What I haven’t advertised on this blog until now is that a month or so after starting with Groovy, I became involved in the Groovy in Action book. I won’t claim that I wrote a lot of it – more polishing and adding some introductory material, really. I’m still extremely proud of it, however, and obviously I hope it’ll sell bucket-loads.

So, if you haven’t played with Groovy yet, now’s a very good time to start: download it, have a bit of a play, and then buy the book!
