I had almost given up on Gruple because I had no idea if anyone was using it. But it turns out I need it so badly myself that I got a second-wind and implemented transactions. I released v.1.1 yesterday and then realized with horror that it had serious bugs. After a frantic morning, I’ve got Gruple v.1.1.1 out and I believe (pray) those bugs are addressed.
That is not to say that I’m completely confident there are no bugs in Gruple as it stands! I have noticed occasional bad behaviour, the sure sign of a concurrency time-bomb somewhere. I’ll keep doing my best to track it down, starting with adding concurrent unit tests with the help of GroboUtils. If you use Gruple and have any problems please do let me know.
Finally, Gruple will be moving to Codehaus fairly soon (it’s approved, but there is work to do.) This will give it greater exposure. I’ll be switching to a git repo, because that just seems to be the thing to do (and I hate SVN with a passion anyway.)
Now if only I could get someone at Terracotta and SpringSource to work on supporting Groovy in the Terracotta product, I’d be laughing. And so would you.
