Hi Kevin,

For the reference, there are two known issues which I know of and is fixed
in Gradle 1.9:

- Gradle 1.8 breaks NetBeans when using the Gradle plugin. Of course, one
could use Gradle 1.9 localy regardless of what you switch to.
- There is a bug in versions prior 1.9 causing failure when evaluating the
build scripts from IDEs (i.e., using the Tooling API of Gradle) which of
course prevents running tasks. I don't know if this issue affects all
previous versions but certainly does affect 1.8.

> It will continue to be buildable with gradle 1.4 unless / until someone

> Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
