The Griffon team is happy to announce the release of Griffon 0.9.2!

Griffon is a Grails inspired framework for writing RIAs on the JVM using Groovy.
A list of bugs fixed in this release can be found at [http://jira.codehaus.org/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?projectId=11833&version=16852].
Full release notes located here.

This release is the culmination of the 0.9.2 beta series however it also sports a few new features of its own
  • ability to handle uncaught exceptions via application event handlers
  • ability to override the selected templates for any of the create-* commands
  • ability to install all plugin updates in batch mode
  • new event firing options: same thread as publisher, outside of publisher's thread and asynchronous to UI thread.
Also, the Griffon Guide has a new section on Tips & Tricks, most of them at the moment deal with Java specific artifacts. It's worth a look for learning more options to porting legacy Java apps to Griffon.

Finally, here's a reminder of a breaking change in how controller actions are handled. All controller actions will be automatically executed outside of the UI thread. Please review the following sections of the Griffon Guide to learn more about the different settings for configuring this behavior
You can download the Griffon distribution from the downloads page.

Thanks to all who contributed to this release!
