Better inferencing of Enums

Organize imports improvements

Organize imports in Groovy scripts now respects the settings in Preferences -> Java -> Code Style -> Organize Imports. Imports are sorted appropriately and grouped according to preferences. Also, semi-colons are now automatically removed. GRECLIPSE-489

Outline view for binary Groovy types

When binary Groovy types are shown in the outline view and the package explorer all synthetic methods and fields are filtered from the view. GRECLIPSE-865


It is now possible to add a bookmark in a Groovy file by right-clicking on the editor ruler and selecting Add Bookmark.... GRECLIPSE-853

Content assist for Constructors

Content assist now includes appropriate constructors when invoked in front of a new keyword. GRECLIPSE-839

Improved semantic highlighting

Semantic highlighting now highlights field references, static references, and deprecated references. GRECLIPSE-869 GRECLIPSE-708

Create Groovy Script

The New Groovy Class wizard now has an option to create a Groovy script instead of a standard class. GRECLIPSE-485

Inferencing inside of closures

Type inferencing and content assist inside of closures now uses the type of calling method as the type of this. For example:

Hovering over this in the editor and the bubble will show that this is of type Foo.
