What is Griffon? 
Griffon is a development framework much like Grails.  Instead of developing web applications, Griffon focuses on desktop and rich internet applications.  Developers write their applications in a structure much like Grails and written in the Groovy and Java Programming Languages targeting the Java platform.  Griffon aims to reduce development time by leveraging dynamic language features in addition to automating routine development tasks via the "Convention over Configuration" idiom.

 Also, the Griffon team is running a Logo contest, find out more at http://griffon.codehaus.org/Logo+Contest.
