Minimum Gradle version for developing plugins

As we are now firmly on the 2.x track I was wondering what the recommendation should be for building a plugin as far as Gradle version goes.

Should plugin developers build against 2.0 (unless they actually want new functionality available in 2.2) ?

That’s a good strategy.

As an additional recommendation for people wanting to test a Gradle 2.0 plugin against Gradle 1.x is to conditionally include the ‘groovy-backports-compat23’ dependency.
