(For those who may not know, Gradle is a popular build automation tool
written in Java and Groovy. Fedora used to have partial Gradle 1.0 with
several plugins disabled, but it was retired in Fedora 20.)
For the past two months I've been working on bringing Gradle back to
Fedora and today I am happy to announce that latest upstream Gradle
release (2.2) is now available in rawhide. All modules and plugins are
enabled. Local mode is implemented, which means that packages which use
Gradle as their build system can now be built easily.
Together with Gradle I have finally updated Groovy to latest upstream
version (2.3.7). There may be some incompatibilities with previously
packaged version (1.8.9), but there is groovy18 compat package available
for people that require compatibility with Groovy 1.x.
I am planning to submit Gradle as a feature for Fedora 22. It will
include packaging guidelines describing the way of building packages
using Gradle, but for now you can get in tuch with me if you want to use
Gradle to build packages.
