gradle-download-task 1.2

The new version of the Gradle plugin gradle-download-task 1.2 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.

The new version is now also available from the Gradle plugin portal. This allows users of Gradle 2.1 or higher to include gradle-download-task via the new plugin mechanism:

plugins {
    id "" version "1.2"

Users of Gradle 2.0 or 1.x have to add the following to their build file:

buildscript {
    repositories {
    dependencies {
        classpath 'de.undercouch:gradle-download-task:1.2'

apply plugin: ''

The plugin’s new version is now also compatible with all stable versions of Gradle. It has been tested with Gradle 1.0 up to 2.2.1 but should be compatible to any other version as well.
