Handle Dependency Updates the easy Way

less than 1 minute read

Every developer knows this problem - you work on a project and over time new versions of the configured dependencies are released. Sometimes it is even not that there is a new version, but it is the stable release you’ve been waiting for so long!

But instead doing a manual check from time to time, there is a better approach for your gradle project: the gradle-versions-plugin by Ben Manes.

Just install it and get a report for your dependencies by executing the dependencyUpdates task.

This will now help me to keep the dependencies for docToolchain up to date!
