if you try to build Gradle from sources, and follow the http://gradle.org/build.html or run build.gradle with default tasks you will get:

./gradlew clean dists

FAILURE: Could not determine which tasks to execute.

  • What went wrong:
    Task 'dists' not found in root project 'gradle'.
  • Try:
    Run with -t to get a list of available tasks.


Seems, like the names of tasks changed, but it was not reflected neither in default tasks of build.gradle nor on the website.
