Congratulations ! BTW: does it have a release plan ?


#3

This release is rather feature driven than date-driven. The main purpose of 1.0.7 is to give Gradle users, who don’t want to use a 1.1 for some reason, a way use Kotlin with recent Gradle distributions (3.2+). We’ve found some issues we want to address, so there will be yet another EAP build. Hopefully final version of 1.0.7 will be released shortly after that.
