Congratulations on the release - as a Groovy developer it's always great to see Groovy getting better...

As my son's Minecraft Groovy consultant, I saw that 2.4.12 does not contain a fix for the (unfortunately required) "obfuscation not working when trying to mod Minecraft using Groovy" problem I described under "Minecraft modding with Groovy: @CompileStatic not statically compiling fields ?", so I was wondering whether you could give me any indication on a timeframe for a fix ?

(It would be great if Groovy could achieve its goal on being as Java compatible as possible here, so that Groovy Minecraft modding actually becomes just "add @CompileStatic to your class", as to get kids involved early with Groovy)
