Generally it is not a big deal when next RC is released. Generally not but that one is a big deal… at least for me. Why? This is the first Groovy release where my contribution can be spotted
Full release notes for RC2 are available here. Of course to get the release you can download it directly from Groovy site or use any other way you like. Personally I always use gvm to obtain new Groovy releases. If you haven’t tried gvm yet it is definitely a tool worth giving a try.
