The new version of the Gradle plugin gradle-download-task 3.3.0 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.
Grab gradle-download-task 3.3.0 while it’s still hot:
The new version has been tested with Gradle 1.x up to 4.1 but should be compatible to any other version as well.
- Add configurable timeout
onlyIfModifiedas an alias for
onlyIfNewerfor the file protocol
- Fix handling of skipped and up-to-date tasks with Gradle 3.2 and higher
- Add possibility to set interceptors for requests and responses
- Add integration tests for Gradle 3.4 up to 4.1
