Org.gradle.parallel=false triggers parallel build in Gradle 3.5?

I have a multi-project build that doesn’t work when using parallel build so I configured my file with the line org.gradle.parallel=false.

In Gradle 3.5,
When I have org.gradle.parallel=false in my file, gradle runs with parallel execution:

2017-04-13T15:29:57.3425201Z Parallel execution is an incubating feature.

If I erase the org.gradle.parallel=false line then the above line does not appear in the console output.

In Gradle 3.4.1 I had the org.gradle.parallel=false line and Gradle did not run with parallel execution.

I didn’t notice any mention of this in the release notes for 3.5. Is this supposed to happen?

My bad @pangyikhei, this is indeed an issue that slips in during refactoring. Hold tight; we are going to look and see what we can do about this.

You can track this regression with this issue. The workaround is to use org.gradle.parallel= (without false).
