I'm pleased to announce the release of Groovy 2.1.5.
Groovy 2.1.5 is a bug fix release of the Groovy 2.1 branch. In particular, it fixes a problem we've encountered with Groovy 2.1.4 where the extension module descriptors were not found in the "all" JAR, which meant that the usual nice GDK methods extensions for XML and other modules were not found by Groovy.
Thanks to all who contributed to this release!
Keep on groovy'ing!
