Welcome to the December Newsletter!

Happy Holidays from the Gradle Team! We have 3 new releases for you: Gradle 4.4, Gradle Enterprise 2017.7, and Buildship 2.2. Read on for details about each and community updates.

First up, Gradle 4.4 features:

  • Better incremental build and build cache support for C and C++
  • Visual Studio 2017 toolchain support
  • Kotlin DSL v0.13

Next, Gradle Enterprise 2017.7 features:

  • Build cache replication, enabling faster builds with build cache nodes geolocated close to developers
  • Keyboard navigation for build scans
  • Sharing specific performance information in build scans

One more thing: fully hosted Gradle Enterprise trials! You can now try Gradle Enterprise with no setup. Just fill out this form and we’ll provision and host a Gradle Enterprise trial instance for you on the web.

Finally, Buildship 2.2 features:

  • Automatic project synchronization
  • Syntax highlighting for Gradle script files
  • Runtime classpath separation

Buildship 2.2 will be a part of the upcoming Eclipse Photon release.
