gradle-download-task 1.2

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.

The new ver­sion is now also avail­able from the Gradle plug­in portal. This al­lows users of Gradle 2.1 or higher to in­clude gradle-down­load-task via the new plug­in mech­an­ism:

plugins {
    id "" version "1.2"

Users of Gradle 2.0 or 1.x have to add the fol­low­ing to their build file:

buildscript {
    repositories {
    dependencies {
        classpath 'de.undercouch:gradle-download-task:1.2'

apply plugin: ''

The plu­gin’s new ver­sion is now also com­pat­ible with all stable ver­sions of Gradle. It has been tested with Gradle 1.0 up to 2.2.1 but should be com­pat­ible to any other ver­sion as well.

Grab gradle-down­load-task 1.2 while it’s still hot:
