Thanks for the vote!

Yes, it would be good to be able to add exceptions to Spotbugs like excluding checking for serialVersionUID in our generated closures. In many classes, that is 50-90% of the spotbug errors.

Quite the number of codenarc, checkstyle, and spotbugs violations, some of them might have been reported already, however no showstoppers.

Dear development community,

I am happy to start the VOTE thread for a Groovy 2.5.1 release!

This release fixes some issues with OSGi, packaging issues related to JDK9+
and some trait bugs that didn't make it in time for 2.5.0.
There are no API-level breaking changes but the packaging changes
are breaking for a small handful of users who will need to add groovy-jaxb
and/or groovy-bsf into their dependencies. The flip side is that many users
won't need to worry about --add-modules java.xml.bind which was causing
usability headaches for many users. Further details will be in the release notes.

This release includes 42 bug fixes/improvements as outlined in the changelog:
