Gradle - v8.0.2

The Gradle team is excited to announce Gradle 8.0.2.

This is the second patch release for Gradle 8.0. We recommend using 8.0.2 instead of 8.0.

It fixes the following issues: * #23698 Gradle 8 RC2 runs out of metaspace * #23962 Java/Scala build with no explicit toolchain: build fails with Gradle 8.0.1 / Scala 2.13 * #23990 Gradle 8.0.+ silently dropped support for custom compilers in JavaCompile * #24031 InstrumentingTransformer generates different class files in Gradle 8 and 7.6 which leads to Remote Build-Cache misses * #24109 Extending an already resolved configuration no longer works correctly * #24122 Update configuration cache state for some plugins * #24129 includeBuild in PluginManagementSpec deincubated in Gradle 8, docs still say it's incubating

Issues fixed in the first patch release: * #21551 Document integration of Scala plugin with toolchains and problems with target flag * #23888 --no-rebuild suddenly gone without new deprecation cycle and without the reason for its undeprecation being void * #23905 Gradle 8.0 fails Scala build with isBlank not found in String class error
