Jessica Thornsby

PLUS, Gradle 0.9 and Apache Xerces-J 2.11.0.

Gradle 0.9 With Added Daemon

Gradle 0.9 has been released. In this edition, Gradle will skip a task if its input files have not changed since the task last ran, regardless of whether the tasks are in-built or custom made by the user. Build scripts can be added to a project from any URL, meaning scripts can be shared using HTTP, and scripts can be applied to any arbitrary object. This release also includes the experimental Gradle daemon, which runs in the background and performs builds. For more information on the Gradle daemon, please visit the tool’s webpage.

Apache Xerces-J Builds on XML Schema 1.1 Compliance

Apache Xerces-J 2.11.0 has been announced. This tool provides a processor for parsing, validating, serialising and manipulating XML. Apache Xerces-J 2.11.0 specifically targets improved compliance with the XML Schema 1.1 language, adding support and fixing various bugs related to this language. Please see the Release Notes for more detailed information.
