Gradle 5.5.1

In the last newsletter, we talked about the 5.5 release candidate. Since then, we released Gradle 5.5 and 5.5.1 which includes some important fixes listed in the release notes.

The top features of the Gradle 5.5 release are:

As with all releases, please upgrade to the newest version.

./gradlew wrapper –gradle-version=5.5.1

Follow the Gradle milestones on GitHub

Ever wonder when the next Gradle version will be released and whether or not a particular bugfix will be included?

The build tool team uses milestones on GitHub. For example, this is what’s coming in 5.6 RC1. As a release gets closer, a due date will also be assigned. Please note these are only estimates. Every Gradle release must be feature complete, documented, and pass all relevant regression tests before it can go out.

Gradle Enterprise 2019.2.3

Gradle Enterprise, our SaaS platform of data and infrastructure services that customers use to accelerate and optimize Gradle and Apache Maven™ builds, released version 2019.2.3 fixing some issues raised against 2019.2.2.

Gradle Enterprise Maven Extension 1.1.4

The Gradle Enterprise Maven Extension enables Apache Maven™ builds to connect to a Gradle Enterprise server and take advantage of features such as build scans and local and remote build caching. The latest Gradle Enterprise Maven Extension 1.1.4 release fixes some issues raised against 1.1.3.
