  • Power asserts that provide a descriptive message of what was wrong, like in the Spock Framework (real cool !)
  • AST viewer and AST Builder
  • Customizable Groovy Truth through the implementation af the asBoolean() method

A more detailed description of the new features can be found in the Groovy site.
