Vert.x is a toolkit for building reactive applications on the Java Virtual Machine. The project maintainers are currently working hard to get the new version 3.0 out. Tim Fox, the original creator of Vert.x and one of its core developers, was recently looking for someone to redesign the Vert.x website. I offered to take over the job! I consider this an opportunity to give something back to the great Vert.x community!

The new version of the Gradle plugin gradle-download-task 1.2 has just been released. The plugin provides a
Download task that displays progress information while downloading files, just like Gradle does when it fetches an artifact from a repository.

I really like how Gradle displays progress while it’s fetching artifacts from Maven repositories, but I was always wondering why you cannot use the same functionality when you’re downloading arbitrary files in your build script.
