which looks fine when the text is all the forground colour except that all the commands "gradle . . ." are coloured when rendered at runtime and come out completely unreadable with my Gnome theme.

Please can the colour be removed as the default to be applied if the user asks for colour. Also if the colours could be easily amendable it would help.

This text is bold now.

You can also use system properties to configure the colours, if you want, as discussed on the mailing list.

Is the intention to stick with colouring the "UP TO DATE" messages – which are more or less invisible with my theme, they are a sort of light goldy yellowy colour. And could it say "Up to date." rather than "UP TO DATE"? Also the error messages are red.

I think all the information needs to be in the manual, the mailing list is the wrong place to store such information!
