Gradle Releases

Gradle 6.7

Gradle 6.7 has been released and is packed with new features and enhancements. As of this release, the file system watching feature that makes incremental builds faster is ready for production use. This release also brings 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. Running on and building with Java 15 is also supported. See release notes for details and information about other improvements in this release.

Gradle Enterprise 2020.4

Gradle Enterprise 2020.4 has been released and ships with a number of highly anticipated features. Correlation and detection analysis of similar build failures makes it easy to identify whether a build failure is isolated or widespread. The improved fault tolerance for distributed testing decreases the disruptions caused by unreliable network environments. More build history can be retained than before thanks to more efficient build data storage. Configuring and administering a Gradle Enterprise installation is also now much more convenient. See release notes for details.

Other Releases

Android Studio 4.1

Android Studio 4.1 has been released. It brings a number of improvements including a faster feedback loop with “apply changes”. This is the first release that is compatible with Gradle’s experimental configuration cache](). However, we recommend that early adopters of configuration cache use the latest 4.2 [canary version to get all the latest bug fixes. See the blog post for details about this release.
