Thanks for your work on progressing the 1.3 release Benedikt. We have built
Groovy using the RC-1 candidate jar and the build and all tests succeed.
This is already a huge step forward for us. Thanks! (And thanks Pascal for
doing the checking).

Having said that, I should also give you a little bit more context.
We forked our own version of PosixParser in late 2012. Our version has some
of the bug fixes from 1.3 and some of our own bug fixes. So the current
is still using that class and that in turn refers to a bunch of the classes
were deprecated in CLI 1.3.

We have a bunch of open Groovy JIRA issues related to CLI 1.2 bugs.
We'll have to check them individually to see whether we can close off any
with CLI 1.3 in place. I suspect some might remain because of our use
of our forked class at present.

We'll certainly have a bunch more feedback when we try to deprecate our
forked class and migrate ourselves across to the DefaultParser which we'll
do over the coming months once CLI 1.3 is out.

At least with a 1.3 out we'll be in a much better position to iteratively
across and also give you timely and relevant feedback for any issues that
we find.

Cheers, Paul.
