New releases of bson4jackson and gradle-download-task

Today I’m happy to an­nounce new ver­sions of bson4­jack­son 2.6.0 and gradle-down­load-task 2.1.0. bson4­jack­son adds sup­port for BSON, a bin­ary rep­res­ent­a­tion of JSON, to the Jack­son JSON pro­cessor. gradle-down­load-task is a Gradle plug­in that provides a Download task dis­play­ing pro­gress in­form­a­tion while down­load­ing files—just like Gradle does when it fetches an ar­ti­fact from a re­pos­it­ory.

Grab the new re­leases while they’re still hot:

The new ver­sions are main­ten­ance re­leases fix­ing a few minor bugs.
