I used the new build comparison feature to compare my build output between gradle versions 1.2 and 1.3.
Much build output was compared and the feature is already helpful to validate no regression with the newer gradle version.
Some things like to be able to configure:
- Comparison of additional archive types. I create RPMs using the gradle-rpm plugin. While not all RPM content is visible when opening as a zip file, a comparison of the file system contents in the RPMs would be very helpful. Is there any way to have the comparison treat the RPMs as zip files? 2. Location of gradle distributions (to get them from the local network). 3. The tasks to run before comparing output (mentioned as configurable in http://forums.gradle.org/gradle/topics/new_in_1_2_build_comparison_gradle_upgrade_testing ).
