Gradle 4.4 RC2 is available for testing; see the release notes.
I created a pull request for a tiny one-word change in the lazy configuration section of the user guide. It hardly seemed worth creating an issue for it, but I can if needed.
Thanks Chris. Good catch! A PR for this kind of fix if fine. No need to create an additional issue. We’ll release another RC today and I will include your typo fix.
