A few days before we all converge on JavaOne 07 and Grails 0.5 is out! This is an awesome milestone for Grails and represents a significant improvement over Grails 0.4. Well over 200 JIRA issues have been tackled and Grails is now 40-50% faster than previously published benchmarks
We got round to tackling some great new features such as our DSL for URL mapping, command objects, more codecs and huge improvements to GORM. Take a look at the release notes for more info. All in all I feel Grails is coming along nicely and we are still on target to ship 1.0 by autumn. See you at JavaOne 07!
