We have several major advances included in the 2.5.0 release of Groovy-Eclipse. In addition to including both Groovy 1.8.0 and Groovy 1.7.10, we have introduced support for DSL descriptors that allow first class support for custom DSLs in Groovy-Eclipse.
You can use the following update site sto install this release.
And a zipped version of the update site is available at:
You can install from the zip by pointing your Eclipse update manager to the downloaded zip file and following the installation instructions.
Groovy-Eclipse 2.5.0 includes Groovy 1.7.10 by default. Groovy 1.8.0 can be optionally installed. Groovy-Eclipse is installable on STS 2.6.0, Eclipse 3.6.0, 3.6.1, or 3.6.2. There are builds available targeting Eclipse 3.7 as well. See above for the update sites.
Over 40 issues have been fixed for this release.
The 2.5.1 final release is scheduled for the end of June, around the time that Eclipse 3.7 will be released. We will be working on enhancing our DSLD support and including some standard DSLD files inside of Groovy-Eclipse with the next release.
In this release, we are particularly grateful for Maxim Hamm's work on outline view extensibility (GROOVY-1029).
