Well it looks like I'm a bit late to the party as James, Jim, Guillaume, and Andres already beat me to it, but I'll say it anyways: Happy Birthday Griffon! As birthdays are a natural time for reflection, I thought I'd look through my blog archives to find my first Griffon post. Although not one of my most original titles, My First Griffon App debuted on September 17, 2008 marking me as a happy Griffon user since nearly the beginning. Since then I've written several other Griffon apps and a few more blog posts about Griffon.
It's been fun watching not only the project develop but also the enthusiastic community spring up around it. As Jim mentioned in his post, Griffon's presence at JavaOne this year was a major highlight. The fact that the major IDEs are adding Griffon support and Griffon in Action is set to release this March shows that Griffon truly has arrived.
So congrats to everyone involved. If you haven't tried Griffon yet, what are you waiting for? The upcoming 0.2 release is shaping up to be the best yet!
