It is no secret that whenever a major release of Groovy appears a Grails release is not that far behind, lucklily we didn't have to wait long: Grails 1.1 RC1 is here!

SpringSource and the Grails development team are pleased to announce the 1.1 RC1 release of the Grails web application development framework.

Grails is a dynamic web application framework built on Java and Groovy, leveraging best of breed APIs from the Java EE sphere including Spring, Hibernate and SiteMesh. Grails brings to Java and Groovy developers the joys of convention-based rapid development while allowing them to leverage their existing knowledge and capitalize on the proven and performant APIs Java developers have been using for years.

Further information about the release can be obtained using the links below:

On a personal note one of the new features that I find most appealing on this release is Standalone GORM, yes finally we will be able to sprinkle some GORM goodness into an application that is not Grails based, for example a Griffon based desktop application.
