There's a missing newline character between the current task name and the text written to stderr.

Comment by Rodion Moiseev [ 14/Jun/12 ]

Still reproducible in version 1.0. New lines appear correct in the terminal, but do not work when redirecting.

Here's sample output:

$ gradle build 2>&1 | tee gradle.out

:logformat:compileJava/home/rodion/workspace/logstx/logformat/src/main/java/com/logstorage/logformat/dag/LogformatConverter.java:92: warning: [unchecked] unchecked cast
                for (Element e2 : ((List<Element>) e.getChildren("action"))) {
  required: List<Element>
  found:    List

The above output appears in the console (piped through tee) and in the resulting gradle.out file, in identical manner.

This has an unfortunate effect on Gradle-based plugins (e.g. Jenkins, see JENKINS-12234 for a screenshot).

Gradle -version output:

$ gradle -version
