Join the HMS Groovy Bounty, Pledge Allegiance and Pay your Groovy Pals !
This is an experimental umbrella task to collect pledges/bounties that people commit to paying to a (to be created) Groovy funding / developer 's Paypal address on completion of a specific Groovy feature or fix.
If you would like to pledge for a task, just add the task name and the amount as a comment below, and I will update the totals in each currency.
Current feature bounties:
|var & final RHS type support| | 100 EUR | Support
final x = RHS -> final typeof(RHS)
var typeof(RHS) x = RHS
for the most common practical cases|
|Non-map based named parameters|[GROOVY-8451]|300 EUR|Support type safe, flexible named parameters for ctors and methods, in addition to the existing, restricted map-based named parameters|
|Global constructor call support without new keyword|[GROOVY-8490]|200 EUR|Extend @Newify so that calling class ctors can be easily enabled for a whole project|
|block type closures|([GROOVY-6880],[GROOVY-8301])|200 EUR|Support a mechanism to inline "closures" that actually semantically represent block constructs, so that return/break/continue work as for a regular code block, and the unnecessary performance hit in these cases can be avoided|
