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

More information

If you want to learn more about the plug­in have a look at its README file or at my earlier post.

I also strongly ad­vice to read my blog post on 10 re­cipes for gradle-down­load-task to get an idea what you can do with the plug­in.
