We have made the first release of licenser under the Cadix Development organisation, which brings the project up-to-date and ready for changes being made to Gradle in 7.0.


plugins {
    id 'org.cadixdev.licenser' version '0.5.0'


In future, we would like to look at migrating our Gradle plugins over to Kotlin - a type-safe language still preserving the lack of great boilerplate using Java, that seems to be the direction that Gradle is heading towards.

This will be a good opportunity to review functionality in our plugins, and work with our communities to resolve long-term frustrations with our projects.

A more broad goal is to introduce further configuration to allow fine-tuning of our plugins across-the-board, sparked by lack therefor in gitpatcher.
