We've been working hard to improve Dependabot's Gradle support, and are upgrading its status to "beta".
We launched Gradle support back in May with a very basic
build.gradle parser. Since then we've made a lot of improvements:
- We've rewritten our
build.gradleparsing logic from scratch
- We've added support for updating versions specified with a property
- Dependabot now parses the repositories you're using from your buildfile and checks for available versions at only those locations
- Over 1,000 gradle update PRs generated by Dependabot have been merged
We'll keep working to improve Dependabot's Gradle support, and would love your feedback if you're using it, but it's no longer an "early alpha" product. We think Dependabot's Gradle support is now good enough for you to rely on.
