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.

Release Notes

The Gradle team is pleased to announce Gradle 4.9.

First, publishing tools get some more love: projects that publish auxiliary publications (e.g. test fixtures) through maven-publish and ivy-publish can now be depended upon by other projects in the same build. There is also a new Publishing Overview chapter in the user manual and updates throughout the documentation regarding publishing artifacts using Maven and Ivy.

In addition to lazy tasks use, Kotlin DSL build scripts are evaluated faster with version 0.18.4, included in this version of Gradle. IntelliJ IDEA and Android Studio user experience is also improved.
See details in the Kotlin DSL v0.18.x release notes.

You can now pass arguments to JavaExec tasks directly from the command-line using --args:

❯ gradle run --args 'foo --bar'

No more need to hard-code arguments in your build scripts. Consult the documentation for the Application Plugin for more information.

Last but not least, this version of Gradle has an improved dependency insight report. Read the details further on.

We hope you will build happiness with Gradle 4.9, and we look forward to your feedback via Twitter or on GitHub.
