Old news, I know, but I just want to underline how some of these releases tie together, possibly to indicate an important trend.

First of all, we have Java SE 6, with Javascript built-in, thanks to Mozilla Rhino.

Then we have JRuby 0.9.2, with a slew of enhancements, bug fixes and performance tweaks.

Finally, after a long wait, Groovy RC-1.

All signs pointing to 2007 as the year of dynamic languages on the Java platform? It really seems likely.

On an unrelated note, I am also pleased to announce the relase of Apache Abdera 0.2.0 (incubating). Nothing revolutionary here, but an impressive number of features already for a 0.2 version. Very stable and surprisingly bug-free also.
