The Windows-Installer for Groovy 1.6.4 can now be downloaded from the Groovy Website (direct link). It takes care of the gory details of a Windows installation, copying files, setting environment variables and file associations. This version of the installer is a nearly complete rewrite, providing you with a more modern interface when choosing what to install.
It contains the Groovy 1.6.4 Binaries, API Docs and a PDF snapshot of the Wiki, the native launcher, Gant 1.7.0, Scriptom 1.6.0, and the Griffon Builders. These contain, among others, GFXBuilder, SwingXBuilder and JideBuilder in versions compatible to Griffon 0.1.2. The installation of everything but the binaries including the native launcher is optional.
Currently supported languages for the installer are english, german, spanish, french and brazilian portuguese.
