Adding Andy & Kris in CC.
I've been told the next release of GGTS should cover the latest & greatest Groovy, but they know better than me.

If you really have to use Groovy 1.8 you will have to use an old version of Greclipse.
There were/are no plans to keep supporting Groovy 1.8 in future Greclipse releases.Our team is overloaded trying to maintain too many different versions of Grails, Groovy, AspectJ tooling on too many different versions of Eclipse platform and JVM. Some things just have to give. Groovy 1.8 is really quite old now and so it was decided that would be one of the things we are dropping support for.
I you need to use both Groovy 1.8 and 2.3 I'm afraid you will have to use two separate instance of Eclipse for each.
Sorry, I understand this is probably not the answer you wanted.

However... we can not make any guarantees how well it works with the current Greclipse. In fact we know there are definitely some API changes that would make it really not compatible with current greclipse. You may not have any problems with it, or you may, it really depends on whether calls to these 'missing API' in 1.8 gets hit at runtime, which depends precisely on what you do.
Davide,Actually... we reconsidered becaus you and Mauro have been very helpful to us in the past. So we decided to see how much work it is to put 1.8 compiler back into the build. It didn't take that long and so you will see the 1.8 compiler back on the snapshot update site now.
Hopefully this works for you, but if it doesn't unfortunately we can't really spend much time on fixing issues around 1.8 compatibility.
