Gradle 2.11 released

The Gradle team is pleased to announce the availability of Gradle 2.11.

This release delivers significant improvements to the new software model, together with improvements to IDE integration and continuous build.

The software model is the future of Gradle. The core software model is the basis of the native language and Play framework support in Gradle, and we are working intensively to bring full Java support. With this release, the new Java plugins support testing with JUnit and do a better job in compile avoidance. As well as developing our Java support, we continue to invest in the software model infrastructure, so support for developing any plugin with the new software model also got better.

Existing Java projects also benefit from Gradle 2.11. Improved IDE integration means that developing a Gradle project in IntelliJ IDEA or Eclipse is even better, with fewer tweaks to the IDE configuration required. These improvements encompass both the generated project files and the Tooling API used by IDEs to import Gradle projects.

By detecting changes that occur during build execution, Continuous build has become more dependable. We encourage users to try out this cool feature, which can really enhance the development experience with Gradle.

In addition to these features, Gradle continues to improve with a variety of small improvements and bug fixes.

As always, new features, bug fixes and potential breaking changes related to this release can be found in the release notes and you can download it from
