Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, most of the tech world was still on vacation so we had some time to catch up on some new releases that became available during the holidays.
Gradle is back with another release featuring a long list of updates, improvements, and fixes. From improvements for plugin authors to enhanced tooling API, this release features a lot of goodies!
We’ve been keeping an eye out for Gradle, since rc.1 dropped earlier this month. Now, Gradle 5.0 is here! This major release comes with all kinds of new features and changes for developers, including Java 11 support, production ready Kotlin DSL, dependency alignment, task timeouts, and more!
We have some pretty big news coming our way! The first release candidate for Gradle 5.0 is live and we take a look at the most promising new features and changes. Make sure you pay attention to this one since it marks the last phase before general availability hits, so we pretty much have the final deal!
Gradle is here with the newest release 4.9 and it impresses us with an extensive list of new features, improvements, issue fixes, and a couple of breaking changes!
The latest update from Gradle is sure to keep everyone smiling. The new Gradle 4.8 boasts a number of improvements that are sure to delight Gradle users, including dependency locking, plugin upgrades for Maven and Ivy, and improvements to incremental annotation processing.
Gradle 4.7 is here and it brings a lot of exciting new features, including support for resources and test resources in the IDEA plugin; running Gradle builds with JDK 10 is also possible. Let’s have a look at the highlights.
Big improvements are in store for Buildship, the effort to incorporate Gradle into Eclipse. Buildship 2.2 boasts improved runtime classpath separation, Java 9 support, and more.
Java SE 9 was released almost a month ago and we already have Java 9 support in Eclipse Oxygen, Spring Framework 5.0, IntelliJ IDEA and more. Now Gradle has joined the club. Let’s see what this means.
The open source build automation system has now given us Gradle 2.3, which packs a punch with access to metadata artifacts, greater IDE support and as always, a swath of community contributions.
The team at techdev show us how they combined an AngularJS, Java 8 and Spring 4 backend with a REST API to build a office data-tracking tool.
[Cue singing choir of angels] Gradle’s latest and greatest makes it way easier to get plugins with its very own plugin portal.
Update includes a leaner code base and a host of new additions. There’s also an upgrade to Groovy 2.3.2.
