Upgrade Grails

To upgrade grails on a project I download the latest distribution binary zip from http://grails.org/Download and unzip it over my old installation on c:\grails to override my older installation.

On starting Netbeans it automatically downloads the updated dependencies:-

I then run the upgrade command on individual projects:-

grails upgrade
