I saw some of the changes listed in 1.0-milestone.6-SNAPSHOT that I wanted to try out so I switched over to using it.
To my surprise, it forced me to re-download ALL of my dependencies again, even though I had downloaded them previous builds using 1.0-milestone-5. Is this intended behavior?
Looking at my ~/.gradle file, I see that I had an ~/.gradle/caches/artifacts-3 directory, and now I have in addition an artifacts-4 directory with duplicate entries for my dependencies.
I know that these are SNAPSHOTs and anything can change prior to 1.0, but I assume the intent is that the local cache will become stable and sacrosanct (wow, never used that word in a sentence before…) such that upgrades in gradle version will respect what’s in the cache from previous versions so as not to redownload everything?
