Please note when you purchase Practical Grails 3 you will receive update through the whole life of Grails 3.x. The book will continue to grow with new features and feedback as Grails grows.
I’ve been tracking changes to the 3.3.x line though have not updated the book examples yet. The main reason is the build-test-data plugin has not been updated yet to support 3.3.x. We use build-test-data extensively in the examples. Due to this the 1.0 release of the book will be on the latest 3.2.x line.
I am considering moving all build-data related tasks to dru and the new trait testing framework. I would love to hear your feedback on this change.
Note: 0.7 release was a silent release live on the site since June 22nd 2017.
