Gradle Releases

Gradle Enterprise 2020.2 and Distributed Testing

Gradle Enterprise 2020.2 contains the feature that we have been looking forward to for a long time. The highlight is our new Distributed Testing capability that extends test parallelism by fanning out test execution across many machines. Our customers observe build times decreasing by a factor of 10x. We are starting to use it with our own builds and we are stoked about the results we are seeing. For more information about Gradle Enterprise 2020.2, see release notes.

Gradle 6.4

Gradle 6.4 is generally available. It was followed by a small patch release 6.4.1, so make sure you use the latest when you upgrade. This release includes highly anticipated support for building, testing and running Java Modules (JPMS). It also provides precompiled Groovy DSL script plugins that are a nice new way to write your build code inspired by the equivalent feature in Kotlin DSL.

IntelliJ IDEA 2020.1

The recently released IntelliJ IDEA 2020.1 improves the way Gradle projects are refreshed and makes running tests with Gradle much more efficient.

Android Studio 4.0

Android Studio 4.0 has just been released and brings a new build analyzer window, initial support for Kotlin DSL, and support for several new features in the Android Gradle plugin.
