Description Manuel Rüger (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-06-16 23:14:02 UTC
1.8.6 was released on Feb 09, 2012

I don't know if you want to add release candidates, but here is some information about groovy 2.0_rc3:

"Groovy 2.0 will be the next major version of Groovy, after the Groovy 1.8.

We initially started with a 1.9.x numbering scheme, but the scope of features of that version warranted us bumping the version to 2.0, hence why you're going to see mentions of betas for a 1.9 version."

"Feature set

Release mainly geared towards the alignments with the upcoming but delayed JDK 7.

    work related to JDK 7
        notes on JDK 7 and JDK 8 future
        usage of invokedynamic and annonymous classloader (JDK7 features)
        updates for JDK 7 language features (aka Project Coin)
    modularity of Groovy (splitting Groovy in smaller JARs on a per feature basis)
    static type checking AST transform
    static compilation AST transform"

Here is the patch with trivial changes. 

I have tried to rewrite the ebuild using more modern ant classpath rewriting, but I got the error on groovy doc generation.

[groovydoc] Can't find/access AST Node typeorg.codehaus.groovy.antlr.GroovySourceAST
[groovydoc] java.lang.ClassCastException: antlr.CommonAST cannot be cast to org.codehaus.groovy.antlr.GroovySourceAST

Does anybody knows how to manage (or debug) it?

cleaned up ebuild (thank for sera for help). 

The tests currently don't pass. The problem, seems in instantiating org.objectweb.asm.ClassWriter: the asm-3 package is the dependency of the groovy, while asm-1.5 is dependency of jmock-1.0

required patch for groovy-1.8.8.ebuild
Comment 7 Manuel Rüger (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-10-14 22:34:32 UTC

groovy-2.0.5 released
Comment 8 Tom Wijsman (TomWij) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-07-16 14:51:21 UTC
Appears to use the Gradle build system ( now.
Comment 9 W. Grunewald 2015-04-11 21:15:13 UTC
Groovy 2.4 is an important release since there's support for Android development now:
Comment 10 Ian Delaney (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-04-12 10:58:26 UTC
I note the last patches submitted for this were September 2012. This package simply doesn't have an active maintainer.
Comment 11 Patrice Clement gentoo-dev 2015-08-25 19:52:05 UTC
This will, hopefully, be addressed in bug 555470.
Comment 12 Anton Bolshakov 2015-08-28 01:31:59 UTC
I suggest to add bug #339574 as a blocker.

Groovy 2.x switched from Ant to Gradle
Comment 13 Ian Delaney (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-09-05 09:18:18 UTC
I suggest this is a candidate for dropping proxy-maint since the maintainer isn't one. Patrice perhaps?
