Android Question

Gradle version 1.8 is required. Current version is 1.6

There is a new Android Studio update: https://sites.google.com/a/android.com/tools/recent/androidstudio030released

The link says:

The improved performance is made possible by changes in Gradle 1.8 and
Android Gradle plugin version 0.6.+

So I changed my dependencies like this:

buildscript {
repositories {
dependencies {
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:0.6.+'

But I don't know where I can change the Gradle 1.6 to 1.8 ...

And when I compile the app I've got this error:

Gradle: A problem occurred evaluating project.

Gradle version 1.8 is required. Current version is 1.6

Where can I change the version ?

Thanks in advance :)

I am not sure if this will help you but here is what fixed it for me:

Open up this file in your project:


Edit the distributionUrl line and set it too:


Rebuild your project.

Update: You might want to use gradle-2.8-all.zip now.
