Hey. I am confused as why we would need to do this now (i.e. in a almost RC phase and without any confirmation that the IDE is going to support it). What is the requirement? (except using the latest of course)

As far as I know, there is no immediate requirement to upgrade other than to stay current on performance enhancements, etc.
Regarding "the IDE", I assume you are referring to IntelliJ, and I cannot assess what an upgrade to Gradle 2.0 might entail for IntelliJ.
For Eclipse we generate all of the project metadata from the command line. So in that regard, the IDE is not a concern per se.
If the team deems it ill advised to upgrade Gradle at this time, we can postpone this issue.

I'd rather downgrade Sonar than rush the Gradle build upgrade here. This is a perfect fit for the 4.2 line that we're about to start anyway, so unless there's a critical reason, I'm not in favor of squeezing it into 4.1.3...
