Along with some a slightly reduced startup time, Groovysh has seen new improvements in its code-completion capabilities:
line comment command (GROOVY-6459)
completion for keywords (GROOVY-6399)
completion for properties (GROOVY-6395)
Commands are now prefixed with ":" (GROOVY-6397).
It is now possible to configure the font used by the console (GROOVY-6303, although without a UI dialog yet), and also to be able to run a selected snippet of code reusing the imports defined in your script making it easier to just run quick snippets of your script. The ability to comment or uncomment selected code by pressing "Ctrl +" was added with GROOVY-6459 .
