The Groovy development team and SpringSource are happy to announce the joint releases of two maintenance versions of Groovy: Groovy 1.6.8 and Groovy 1.7.1.
Both releases mainly provide bug fixes, plus a few enhancements in various areas (Groovy console, mocking/stubing support, GroovyDoc improvements, generics handling, and many more). You can look at the JIRA release notes to learn more about those numerous bug fixes and improvements (for 1.6.8 and 1.7.1 respectively).

Thanks a lot to all involved!
