Since the world didn't seem to end today, it is with great pleasure that we bring under your Christmas tree the following presents: the release of Groovy 2.1.0-beta-1 and Groovy 2.0.6.

Groovy 2.0.6 is a bug fix release for our Groovy 2.0.X line, whereas Groovy 2.1.0-beta-1 contains new features.
You can download Groovy at the usual location:
The JIRA release notes can be found here:
More extensive release notes will be available for the final Groovy 2.1.0 release, but please let me highlight the following key new features:
Although more details will be provided later on for the final release, please don't hesitate to ask questions about those new features and improvements till then.
A little reminder on the roadmap, we intend on releasing a release candidate of Groovy 2.1 the second week of January, and if all goes well (if we don't need another RC for some last minute issues), we'll go straight to the final release at the end of January.
Thanks a lot for your feedback, your bug reports, your contributions, your pull requests!
It's with such a great community of users that we make Groovy a joy to use in our every day projects.
The whole development team joins me to wish you the best for the holidays and for next year!
A Groovy Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!
