Grails 2.0 is the first release of Grails that truly abstracts the GORM layer so that new implementations of GORM can be used. […] The MongoDB plugin is at final release candidate stage and is based on the excellent Spring Data MongoDB project which is also available in RC form. […] Grails users can look forward to more exciting NoSQL announcements in 2012 with upcoming future releases of GORM for Neo4j, Amazon SimpleDB and Cassandra in the works.
This is great news.
The very very big news would be a Grails version that doesn’t default anymore to using Hibernate for accessing a relational database.
