Gradle combines the power and flexibility of Apache Ant with the dependency management and conventions of Apache Maven into a more effective way to build. Powered by a Groovy DSL and packed with innovation, Gradle provides a declarative way to describe all kinds of builds through sensible defaults. Gradle is quickly becoming the build system of choice for many open source projects, leading edge enterprises and legacy automation challenges.

Gradle is a build tool with a focus on build automation and support for multi-language development. If you are building, testing, publishing, and deploying software on any platform, Gradle offers a flexible model that can support the entire development lifecycle from compiling and packaging code to publishing web sites. Gradle has been designed to support build automation across multiple languages and platforms including Java, Scala, Android, C/C++, and Groovy, and is closely integrated with development tools and continuous integration servers including Eclipse, IntelliJ, and Jenkins.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

Release Notes

The Gradle team is pleased to announce Gradle 4.4.

First and foremost, this release of Gradle features some exciting improvements for IDE users:

  • Visual Studio 2017 is now supported. Please read details about vswhere and VS toolchain discovery changes if you plan to use Gradle with VS 2017.
  • The eclipse plugin now provides separate output folders. This allows Eclipse plugins to provide more sophisticated classpath management. Buildship 2.2 will take advantage of this feature to avoid one large global classpath when running Java applications or executing tests in Eclipse IDE.

No discussion about IDE support for Gradle would be complete without mentioning improvements to the Kotlin DSL. Version 0.13 is included in Gradle 4.4 and provides support for writing settings.gradle.kts files, Kotlin standard library extensions to the Java 7 and Java 8 APIs for use in build scripts, improvements to the plugins {} DSL, and more! See the Kotlin DSL 0.13 release notes for more details.

This version of Gradle supports version ranges in parent elements of a POM. You can see an example below.

C and C++ developers will enjoy better incremental builds and build cache support for C/C++ because this version of Gradle takes compiler version and system headers into account for up-to-date checks.

This version of Gradle fully supports the combination of Play 2.6 and Scala 2.12, with improvements and fixes to runPlayBinary, the distributed Play start script, and other improvements.

Previous versions of Gradle required that all transitive dependencies of a given plugin were present in the same repository as the plugin. Gradle 4.4 takes all plugin repositories into account and can resolve transitive plugin dependencies across them. Learn about this and other plugin repository handling improvements in the details.

Last but not least, several 3rd party dependencies including Ant were updated to their latest versions containing security and other bug fixes.

We hope you will build happiness with Gradle 4.4, and we look forward to your feedback via Twitter or on GitHub.
