As a heads-up, we will be switching FX 9 production builds to using
gradle 2.8 for building in the near future. See:
Very soon -- later this week if all goes well -- we will "flip the
switch" to make 2.8 the default for building the FX jake bits (for
Jigsaw). Not too long after that we will make 2.8 the default for 9-dev.
Here is a rough timeline that we are considering:
11/20 - switch 9-jake nightly builds to gradle 2.8
12/4 - switch 9-dev nightly builds to gradle 2.8
12/7 - switch 9 master builds to gradle 2.8
12/11 - push change to make 2.8 the minimum supported version
All developers will need to upgrade to gradle 2.8 before the 12/11 date.
Note that you don't need to wait that long. I've been using gradle 2.8
for over a week on all of my machines (and earlier gradle 2.X versions
Note that FX 8u will continue to build with gradle 1.8, although it is
buildable with gradle 2.X for developers.
