gradle.bat script no longer requires that you set the
JAVA_HOME environment variable. It will simply pick up the version of Java from your

JAVA_HOME if you prefer.
This behaviour has always been available in the
gradle UNIX script.
Improvements to DSL

There are a number of similar convenience methods available on
DomainObjectCollection, which is used in many places in the build language. For more details see the API.
