Just released, a free O’Reilly book on Reactive Microsystems: The Evolution of Microservices at Scale. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

G2One and the Groovy development team is pleased to announce the release of Groovy 1.5.6, a bug fix release for the stable Groovy 1.5.x branch.

A regression introduced in 1.5.5 was fixed, and 35 bugs have been resolved (generics, MOP, and joint compiler issues, better line information for IDE support, etc)

As usual, you can download the latest Groovy dustribution and read the change log to know all the details.

[Opinion] I'm happy to say that this release includes a fix for line/column numbers in the AST, which means tools makers that depend on Groovy's grammar facilities can take advantage of that fact, to provide more features, as it is the case of the Eclipse plugin team with their initial refactoring offering. A release of Eclipse's Groovy plugin is also expected in the following days.

Strategies and techniques for building scalable and resilient microservices to refactor a monolithic application step-by-step, a free O'Reilly book. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.
