  • Gradle 2.1 comes with a new, simpler, mechanism for using community plugins in your build, integrated with the new Gradle Plugin Portal. The Gradle Plugin Portal already contains more than 120 community plugins. This is one of many improvements planned to expand the Gradle platform by making the lives of both plugins developers and users better through new features and tooling.
  • Another very new exciting feature is the incubating support of incremental Java compilation, which promises to significantly reduce compilation times during the development cycle.
