The Groovy-Eclipse team is proud to announce the release of Groovy-Eclipse 2.7.0. This is the first release that includes Groovy 2.0 final and that is available on Eclipse 4.2 (Juno). Now that Eclipse 4.2 is released, we will be dropping our Eclipse 3.6 support.
You can use the following update sites to install this release:
|Groovy-Eclipse update site for Eclipse 4.2, 3.7, and 3.6|
For Eclipse 4.2:
For Eclipse 3.7:
The Groovy 2.0 compiler is not installed by default. If you want to install it, you can do so from the Extra Compilers category in the update site.
And a zipped version of the update site is available at:
|Zipped Groovy-Eclipse update site for Eclipse 4.2, 3.7, and 3.6|
You can install from the zip by pointing your Eclipse update manager to the downloaded zip file and following the installation instructions. Do not unzip into your Eclipse dropins folder.
Groovy-Eclipse 2.7.0 includes Groovy 1.8.6 by default. Groovy 1.7.10 can be enabled optionally, and Groovy 2.0.0 can be installed through the extra compilers section on the update site.
This version of Groovy-Eclipse is recommended to be installed on STS 2.9.2, STS 3.0.0.M3, Eclipse 3.7.2, or Eclipse 4.2. There is also a 4.2-based Groovy-Eclipse now available. See above for the update site.
