In the next few weeks we will be releasing several new versions of Gradle, one for each major version.
If you are new to Gradle and want to know how to upgrade your project, we suggest reading the next article: Gradle 2.4.0 Update: What’s new?
This release includes a number of bugfixes and improvements.
For the most part, it looks the same as 2.3.3, but some of the major improvements have been brought in to help users avoid regressions.
One notable change is that the default output plugin is now used instead of the existing one, allowing for greater flexibility for users.
Other changes include the addition of a new plugin, Gradle.compile , which lets you run your project without installing any dependencies and is now the default plugin for projects that don’t require it.
Gradle is still available for download from the official GitHub repository, and if you have not already, you can try the app by using the Android Studio IDE to get started.
