Groovy Weekly #68
Remember the Android support of Groovy 2.4? Well, the new New York Times Android application, written in Groovy and using RxJava is now live! If a hugely popular Android app is leveraging Groovy, yours can too!
With Groovy’s move to the Apache Software Foundation, don’t forget to star the new Groovy Github repository!
Reminder about our infrastructure changes, as we move the Groovy project through the incubation process at Apache: the JIRA issue tracker has moved, and don’t forget that the Groovy mailing-lists are also moving. The novelty this week is that the Apache Git repository is now the new mainline, but you can contribute pull requests on the Apache Groovy Github mirror.
