Re: New gradle versions?

Gradle 3.2.1 was released just one year ago, it isn't that old. Gradle
upgrades are usually difficult to deal with due to a mix of backward
incompatible changes, integration issues with other Debian libraries and
puzzling build errors. We are just a handful of volunteers watching over
~1000 Java packages, some help would be welcome.

Well, that's the issue with Ubuntu cutting its releases in the middle of
the Debian development cycles, sometimes they pick inconsistent sets of
Java packages.
