I say 3.

(I may be alone on this one, but I'd even suggest to consider some of the Java syntax compatibility, if this helps speed up Groovy 3. If I need to write Java code, I can always put it in .java files.)

Same with me. Option 3 seems best, even when some of our projects
are still on Grails 2.

While the project I'm on is still on JDK 7, but due to Grails 2.x I
think that option 3 is the best way to move forward (and nudge
projects on to a higher version of Grails as well).

JDK 6 or 7 is not in use anywhere that I have project visibility.

Full support for JKD9+ is becoming a pressing issue. Users are
concerned about the ability of Groovy to run on future JDK releases
(including GraalVM), more than legacy support.

Actually, i would vote 3) abandon 2.6 immediately.

No projects I have any knowledge of still use jdk 7.

SUBJECT: [DISCUSS] Groovy 2.6 potential retirement to focus on
Groovy 3.0

Hi everyone,

There was some discussion at gr8conf about how to speed up delivery
of Groovy 3.0. Some of that discussion was around the scope of what
we want to include and have yet to complete in 3.0 but I won't
discuss that right now.

One of the other discussion points was Groovy around 2.6. As many of
you know, we have released alpha versions of Groovy 2.6. That
version is a backport of most but not all of Groovy 3.0 to JDK7
including the Parrot parser (though it isn't enabled by default).
The purpose of this version has always been to assist
people/projects wanting to use the Parrot parser but who might be
stuck on JDK7. So in some sense it is an intermediate version to
assist with porting towards Groovy 3.0. While that is still a noble
goal in theory, in practice, many of our users are already on JDK8
and we have limited resources to work on many potential areas.

With that in mind, we'd like to understand the preferences in our
user base for the following two options:

Option 1: please continue releasing the best possible 2.6 even if
that slows down the final release of Groovy 3.0 and delays further
work on better support for JDK9+.

Option 2: please release one more alpha of 2.6 over the next month
or so which will become the best version to use to assist porting
for users stuck on JDK7 and then focus on 3.0. The 2.6 branch will
essentially be retired though we will consider PRs from the
community for critical fixes.

Feedback welcome.

Cheers, Paul.
