I'm planning on spending most of Tuesday at the Devoxx Hackergarten working on upgrading the build. Also, we should have the javafx packager (which does the native application co-bundles) open sourced this week.

I think it is standalone. Scott?

Cool. I met with Hans Docktor (Mr Gradle) on Tuesday and he was awesome help (thanks Hans!) in getting things farther along. I also met Xavier (not sure of last name) who is on Android build team and working on migrating standard android build tooling to Gradle (not for android itself, yet, but for people building android apps). They have pretty close to all the same build requirements we do so I think this is a great time to be trying to use Gradle.

There is a good chance I could be there, although it falls on my son's birthday which would be a royal shame to miss!
