A newer, better 1.0-milestone-9 snapshot is now available! It would be very helpful if you could give it a spin in your project and give us feedback. You are just a quick update to gradle-wrapper.properties away from checking out this snapshot. Complete instructions for using the snapshot can be found here.
We needed another snapshot to make sure following fixes are included: -a fix for issue with file permissions of files unzipped by Gradle (GRADLE-2158) -non-Ant Java compiler integrations now honor compile.options.debugOptions.debugLevel
Have a look at the release notes for details, and a list of bug fixes.
Please read the migration guide, as there are some deprecations and potential breaking changes.
Gradle 1.0-milestone-9 will be the last release before we go into the RC phase for 1.0 final. For more on the process from here to 1.0 final, see this post.
