May want to rework this to focus on new Foundation approach.

Groovy is a de-facto standard like Spring and, not coincidentally, it’s backed by the same company.

Hi Dierk,

In the v18 version of March 23 2015, it is still the old wording.under 1.1.4:

Groovy is a de-facto standard like Spring and, not coincidentally, it’s backed by the same company. Groovy is also a “first-class citizen” in the Spring framework.

On the next page you could update this with the Apache funding too.
:
Sustainability of the Groovy development was first sponsored by Big Sky Technology, then by G2One and SpringSource (later acquired by VMware and then spun off as part of Pivotal; at time of press, corporate sponsorship of Groovy is uncertain due to Pivotal’s announcement of its suspension of funding Groovy after March 2015)

Thanks for the notice!
We'll have to double-check on that.

cheers
