Read the Release Notes

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://github.com/gradle/gradle/releases/tag/v8.0.0-RC1

Is there a link for the new tooling-api jar can be downloaded from. I’d like to upgrade to the new Tooling for the upcoming NetBeans 17. So far we are using JFrog for the download. Unfortunately replacing the versions neither to 7.6 nor to 8.0.-rc-1 works.

The https://repo.gradle.org/gradle/libs-releases maven repository contains the Tooling API releases:

repositories {
  maven {
    url 'https://repo.gradle.org/gradle/libs-releases'

dependencies {
  implementation 'org.gradle:gradle-tooling-api:8.0-rc-1'
