Gradle 2.3-rc-1 cannot load plugins: fails with "(2.3-rc-1 is not a valid Gradle version number) "

After changing the wrapper to 2.3-rc-1, the new version downloads and starts, but it fails when loading plugins:

* What went wrong:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Plugin [id: '', version: '2.0.0'] was not found in any of the following sources:
  - Gradle Core Plugins (plugin is not in 'org.gradle' namespace)
- Gradle Central Plugin Repository (2.3-rc-1 is not a valid Gradle version number)

The beginning of build.gradle currently looks like this:

buildscript {
    repositories {
  plugins {
    id "" version "2.0.0"

Thanks for reporting this. We’re looking into it.

Hi, We can reproduce this issue.

Shouldn’t be to hard to fix and we’re on it now.

Kind regards, Fredrik

Hi again,

We believe we have fixed this issue now and that it should work if you retry.

Thanks for reporting, Fredrik

Yup, working nicely.
