[GRADLE-1123] dependencyReport replaces older versions with later ones without noting the change Created: 17/Aug/10  Updated: 04/Jan/13  Resolved: 20/Nov/12

Status: Resolved
Project: Gradle
Affects Version/s: 0.9
Fix Version/s: 1.2-rc-1

Running gradle dependencyReport on this build.gradle produces a report that lists only the more recent version of antlr. While detecting and using the latest is very useful, part of the report is to find out what jar files are coming from where, and I think it would be better to list the older jar version, but then put a not to the side to say "overridden by 2.7.2". Without something like this it is hard to track down older dependencies that may need updating, either in the current or in dependency projects. Also, sometimes new versions can introduce new errors or incompatibilities, and a "upgraded" notation in the report might help to track down cases where it worked fine with version 1.2.3 but now breaks with 1.2.4, especially in the case where the 1.2.4 version might have come via a dependency of a dependency.

The report should definitely provide this information.
