Groovy 2.0 is there - but useless...

As much as I waited for the 2.0 release of my favorite programming language I'm grumpy about the quality of the release - or rather the lack of it. Here's why:

One of the most important (for me) things that have been added to 1.8 (I guess it was), the annotations to decoratively add logging facilities to classes is broken.
class Test {
    Test() { log.debug "Here" }
But the best thing is the error message:
Caught: BUG!
Until that's fixed I recommend sticking to the stable version.

Not a nice day,... unfortunately...
