Groovy 2 has just been released! Get the lowdown on what's new to the language, in particular the static type checking and compilation. These two features alone will help broaden Groovy's appeal and mean that there is almost no reason now to fall back to Java. This is also a big release in the way that Groovy is now broken down into modules, so you only need to include the JARs for the things you use. Come along to find out more about this hugely significant release.
