What's New With 7.1.0

August 3, 2023

This is a minor release with tons of updates and bug fixes.

Scheduled Tasks Debugging

You can now add a debug argument to your task definitions, and your console will add tons of debugging for your tasks:

task( name : "My Task", debug : true )

toRedirectTo() Matcher

You can now use this matcher to test relocations in a nice fluent expectation:

expect( event ).toRedirectTo( "main.index" )

REST on{errorType}Exception() Convention

Thanks to our very own Gavin Pickin you can now create exception handlers in your REST Handlers that follow the on{type}Exception() convention and you can listen to specific error type exceptions:

function onTypeMismatchException( event, rc, prc )
