Dear development community,
I am happy to start the VOTE thread for a Groovy 2.4.15 release! This is mainly to fix a regression in calling static methods in interfaces. We were trying to improve the JDK9 experience but on the 2.4 branch it caused existing functionality to be impacted even on JDK8.
This release includes 6 bug fixes/improvements as outlined in the changelog:
