Grails 1.3.6 is here and kicks ass again with one of the coolest features ever! The "run-script" command :)
I admit it has been possible for some time now as mentioned on some blogs but actually having it as part of the framework is a kick-ass productivity boost for anyone that needs to perform administrative tasks on regular basis!
Besides the feature mentioned above it is imperative that you check out the externalized configuration options possibility. This time I'll just simply say "finally"! This stuff has been missing from the framework for a long time! I know it was possible to implement override from an external configuration file but the way it looks now is just as it should be from the beginning!
Fantastic job Grails team! Thank you very very much!
