gradle-download-task 3.3.0

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.

New features

  • Add configurable timeout
  • Introduce onlyIfModified as an alias for onlyIfNewer
  • Implement onlyIfNewer for 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
