The Groovy-Eclipse team is proud to announce the release of Groovy-Eclipse 2.6.0. As usual, we have some exciting new features in this release, including quick fixes/quick assists, improved content assist, and improved search and refactoring. Groovy-Eclipse 2.6.0 includes 1.8.4 support as an optional add-on. Once Grails 2.0 is released officially, we will make Groovy 1.8.x the default compiler in Groovy-Eclipse.

You can use the following update site to install this release:

Groovy-Eclipse update site for Eclipse 3.7 and 3.6


If you want the Groovy 1.8 compiler, you must explicitly include it by checking the "Extra compilers" category.

And a zipped version of the update site is available at:

Zipped Groovy-Eclipse update site for Eclipse 3.7 and 3.6


For Eclipse 3.7:

For Eclipse 3.6:

You can install from the zip by pointing your Eclipse update manager to the downloaded zip file and following the installation instructions.


Groovy 1.8.4

Groovy 1.8.4 is now available as an optional install from the update sites.


Groovy-Eclipse 2.6.0 includes Groovy 1.7.10 by default. Groovy 1.8.4 can be optionally installed. This version of Groovy-Eclipse is recommended to be installed on STS 2.8.1 or 2.9.0.M1, Eclipse 3.7.1 or 3.6.2. There are different update sites for Groovy-Eclipse targeting Eclipse 3.6 and 3.7 (see above).
