After 3 years of development and 24 releases, I am proud to announce that the App Engine plugin is now officially in Google’s hands. A new version is already available on Maven Central under the new coordinates com.google.appengine:gradle-appengine-plugin:1.8.6 and you can expect many more to come. A big thank you goes out to the Gradle and App Engine community that helped make the plugin what it is today. The plugin license stayed the same (Apache 2). Google highly welcomes feedback and pull requests so please continue to contribute.
You can find Google’s announcement on the Google App Engine forum. The code has been migrated to a new GitHub repository GoogleCloudPlatform/gradle-appengine-plugin. Please refer to the new location in the future.
