Dear community,

The Apache Groovy team is pleased to announce version 3.0.0-alpha-1 of Apache Groovy.
Apache Groovy is a multi-facet programming language for the JVM.
Further details can be found at the http://groovy.apache.org website.

This is a pre-release of a new version of Groovy.
We greatly appreciate any feedback you can give us when using this version.

This release includes 9 bug fixes/improvements as outlined in the changelog:

Sources can be downloaded from: http://www.groovy-lang.org/download.html
Convenience binaries, SDK and documentation can be found at: http://www.groovy-lang.org/download.html
Jars are also available within the major binary repositories.
We would like to thank all people who contributed to this release.

We welcome your help and feedback. For more information on how to
report problems, and to get involved, visit the project website at

Apache Groovy 3.0.0-alpha-1 requires JDK8+ and includes the new Parrot parser, which is enabled by default.
The new parser supports do/while loops, classic array initialization, !in/!instanceof operators, === identity operator, safe indexing, try-with-resources, Java lambda and method reference syntax, Elvis assignment operator and much more...

Note: If building Apache Groovy from the source distribution yourself, you need JDK8+ to build Apache Groovy on Linux(e.g. CentOS 7).

Best regards,

The Apache Groovy team.
