The Groovy development team and SpringSource are happy to announce the joint release of Groovy 1.6.4 and a preview of Groovy 1.7.

Be sure to have a look at the new features coming into Groovy 1.7:

Let me also remind you yesterday's very important release of the first preview version of the new Eclipse plugin for Groovy, contributed by SpringSource's Eclipse team. An interview of the developer team will follow soon on GroovyZone.
You can download 1.6.4 and 1.7-beta-1 in the download area.

Have a look at the JIRA issues closed for both versions.

Thanks a lot to all involved, users, contributors, developers, make sure to enjoy these new important releases and enjoy your vacations if you take some this summer!

The Groovy development team.
