Upcoming Gradle Releases

Gradle 6.7 Release Candidate

Gradle 6.7 is currently in the release candidate stage and will include a number of major improvements. As of this release, the file system watching that makes incremental builds faster will be ready for production use. This release will also introduce Java toolchain support that makes it much easier to build JVM projects using a different version of Java than the one Gradle is running on. Stay tuned!

Kotlin 1.4

Kotlin 1.4.0 has been released. The focus of this release is the performance and quality of Kotlin and its tooling. See the official blog post for details.
