Gradle checkstyle

In Gradle 2.7, the checkstyle plugin still reports a false positive for ‘unused tags’ on annotations.

When will the checkstyle version used by Gradle be updated to fix this?

We test against 5.5, 5.9, 6.0, 6.5, 6.8 and 6.9. The default is 5.9, I forget if there’s a good reason for that (other than Checkstyle >6.2 doesn’t support JDK6). You can configure Gradle to use a different version. I checked the integration tests with 6.12 and didn’t see a problem.
