Subject Rolling back change to use ClassValue
Date Tue, 08 Sep 2015 07:07:54 GMT
Hi guys,

As some of you may know, I've been investigating a memory leak which
involves all versions of Groovy starting from 2.4. The leak comes from a
bug in the VM regarding how it handles ClassValue, that Groovy 2.4 started
using. All VMs are affected (7, 8 and 9) and it's still unclear when this
will be fixed. So I would like to suggest to rollback this change for the
next release.

Basically, this commit:
https://github.com/apache/incubator-groovy/commit/97d78e9e52deb52c8e66db501ef208f30384d014

It greatly affects Gradle, so I would suggest to make the change ASAP
(2.4.5) if everyone agrees.
