Andrew Eisenberg was kicking off a rebuild of the jars for that yesterday, should be available imminently. Not sure if he will build a new version or switch to a snapshot model - I guess either way you will have to slightly edit your pom to pick it up. Look out for the announce. That build does include something else I was temporarily working on (but have now backed out) - so I hope that change doesn't disturb compilation for you. If you see problems about things being unresolved, let me know. It will also be groovy 1.7.5 level.
