What’s new in Gradle 6.0

Gradle 6.0 is the culmination of several years of innovative improvements in Dependency Management. Embracing the idea that there is more to software composition and reuse than just putting a set of jar files on the classpath, Gradle now offers a new metadata format to richly define software components that are often made up of multiple files, different variants and specific constraints on their dependencies.

In particular, in this webcast Developer Advocate Jenn Strater and Gradle Engineer Jendrik Johannes discuss:

  1. What’s New in Dependency Management
  2. Java, Groovy, and Scala toolchain improvements
  3. New features for plugin authors
