The Definitive Guide To Grails Saturday, November 25, 2006

The Definitive Guide To Grails is finally available from Apress. The book is a well written easy read that provides a great foundation for Grails developers.

Manning's Groovy In Action (GINA) has been available through their Early Access Program for several months now. The final version of GINA will be available in the next month or so.

Things are heating up in the Groovy and Grails communities. Look for a lot of exciting things to be happening around Grails soon.

Grails 0.3 Released Thursday, November 09, 2006

Grails 0.3 was released today. A lot of work went in to this release which addresses over 100 bugs and feature requests. In my opinion, the fact that Grails is currently at 0.3 is a little misleading. The framework is very powerful and stable. There is a lot on the horizon but the tool is very powerful in its current state. Give it a spin.

I have recently joined the Grails development team and I am looking forward to what the future has in store for Grails.
