Grails Logo The SpringSource developers have released version 1.3 of their Grails web application framework built on Java and Groovy. According to Head of Grails Development for SpringSource Graeme Rocher, more than 400 plug-ins are now available for Grails and the latest major release includes a number of new features over the previous 1.2 release from December.

Grails 1.3 features support for the recently released 1.7 version of the Groovy language, which includes support for Java constructs like anonymous inner classes and nested classes, power asserts and an AST builder. The latest Grails release now uses JUnit 4 to run tests and includes improvements to Modular Plug-in Development, such as Maven repository support for plug-ins. Other changes include the ability to declare plug-in dependencies using the Ivy DSL, new methods to check whether an object has been modified in Grails Object Relational Mapping (GORM) and GORM support for derived properties.

More details about the release can be found in the release notes and the official release announcement. Grails 1.3 is available to download under the Apache 2.0 License and documentation is provided.
