Groovy 2.0.1

Great news everyone!

Few weeks ago the long awaited Groovy 2.0 has been released. Unfortunatelly during that time we were already just a few days before the NetBeans 7.2 release and thus it wasn't possible to integrate new groovy version into the NetBeans 7.2 final. But of course we are aware that the new version is bringing a lot of great news and features (comprehensive article about all the news can be found on infoQ). Because of that we've integrated latest released version (which is Groovy 2.0.1) into the NetBeans sources.

Don't hesitate to try it! Only thing you need to do is download the latest daily build.

NetBeans 7.2 is out!

NetBeans 7.2 was published yesterday. I have to say that in my eyes it's one of the biggest progress I've ever seen in NetBeans when jumping from one version to another. There is really a lot of performance improvements almost everywhere. Project scanning is faster, IDE startup is faster, indexing sources is now transactional which allows you to use all of the IDE features while the scanning is in progress. Of course there are also Groovy & Grails related performance improvements. Scanning bigger Grails projects (and sometimes even the smaller-middle sized) was always pain in the ass, but now the speed is more than 100x times faster than before. And at last but not least Go to type action speed on Groovy types was improved as well.

Of course there is also a lot of new features others then performance. Java refactoring was greatly improved, there is a new support for TestNG, PHP 5.4, Groovy 1.8.6 and much more! You might want to look at Geertjan's blog where you can find Top 10 New Features in NetBeans IDE 7.2. Or if you are interested in details, you can find more release information here. And if you are interested in details even more, the complete list of feature can be found here.

Finally, you can download the NetBeans 7.2 IDE right here!

Introducing NetBeans for Groovy blog

Hello! This is a blog of the team that works on the Groovy development support in NetBeans IDE.

Groovy support has been a part of NetBeans for a while, but we were not working on it much in a last few releases. Good news for everyone is that we are working on it again and hopefully we can make it much better for you!

We really want to get feedback from the real users. No, it doesn't have to be all positive. In fact, there are a number of areas that need improvement and we realize it. So, constructive criticism, feature ideas and enhancement requests, bug reports... all that stuff is welcome!

If you don't have NetBeans on your computer right now, you can either download the Stable Version (currently NetBeans 7.1.1), or, if you want the latest greatest (and likely less stable), you can try the latest development builds. And if you want to share your observations and ideas, feel free to leave comments in this blog, join the users at groovy dot netbeans dot org mailing list, or submit your requests and ideas via our bug tracking system.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
