Should have been "Affects version 0.6" instead of "Fix version 0.6".

Comment by Hans Dockter [ 18/Dec/08 ]

Sorry, Peter, I have given you the wrong advise in my mail.

{{ compile.groovyOptions.fork = false }} should do the job.

If you need it for both compiles you might do: {{ [compile, testCompile].groovyOptions.fork = false }}

compile.options is for setting the javac options (in case of joint compilation the fork setting would be ignored and only the groovyOptions fork would be taken into consideration).

If the above works for you I will close the issue. Please let me know.
