“Grails 1.4 is now Grails 2.0”
Yesterday, Graeme Rocher announced the renaming of the next release of Grails — which was to have been 1.4 — to 2.0. (The Grails Roadmap has been updated for this change.) From the announcement: “This should not significantly impact timelines of the release, but we do feel there are too many great things in the GitHub master branch for it to be a mere 1.4 release.” There is a list of new features to be released as part of the next milestone in the mailing list post.
Griffon 0.9.3 beta 2 released; Griffon moves to GitHub
The second beta release of Griffon 0.9.3, also announced yesterday, includes such updates as DSL / autocompletion support for IntelliJ IDEA / Eclipse and several new AST transformations. (There are release notes at the CodeHaus.) Along with this update came the news that Griffon’s source has moved to GitHub. If you have anything worth adding to / using for improvement in the framework, fork the project and code away.

You may want to check out the new site for much more.
