Do you think Grails will take off ?
I have been reading some articles about this framework and it smells nice but the problem as I see it, it has a slow (really slow) releasing process.
(Ofcourse, every rancher may post his opinion but I want to read Lasse response since he has enthusiasm for Rails)

Grails has already taken off :-)
- We have a book, thriving community, articles and tutorials on Oracle, BEA, IBM and infoq to name just a few.
- We have 5 committers and a hoard of users who contribute patches
- Sven Haiges does a regular pod cast on Grails, with screencasts.
- Grails was presented at JavaOne, on Thursday at JavaPolis and by loads of people at many Java user groups across the world

With regards to the release cycle the first few releases always take longer. 0.4 is the next release. In the future we hope to put out more frequent releases
