Next Grails Release Coming Soon Wednesday, January 10, 2007

After a bit of a development slowdown around the holidays the Grails development team is back at full throttle working on the next release. Version 0.4 is probably going to be ready to ship within the next few weeks. Version 0.3 was a really significant release in terms of new functionality and addressing some key issues that had been lingering. I feel like 0.4 is even more significant. The team is working hard to add new functionality and also filling in a lot of those little nuisance gaps.

Things are really ramping up in the Grails community. We are seeing folks coming up with interesting plugins. The mailing lists are very active. If you haven't taken a look yet, give Grails a spin. The Quick Start Guide doesn't even scratch the surface of capabilities but is a good first step. Following that guide will take about 10 minutes and you will have a simple CRUD application up and running.

Stay tuned for exciting things from Grails in the coming months.
