The Ups and the Downs of the Groovy Console

Like most scripting languages, Groovy has a programming editor -- the Groovy Console . Groovy's editor is home grown, (and not SciTE). There are, however,a few things you need to be aware of with the Groovy Console.
  1. It does not save when you run the program (so get used to saving before each run) 
  2. I've yet to get the interrupt button to work while its running, so I've had to kill the process (thus issue 1 above).
  3. If you are working on a program (and have not saved it recently) and go to open another program (file-->open) you're not prompted to save the first file before its replaced. So save often.
I'm willing to bet that as Groovy matures, that the these issues will get resolved.
