# refreshversions
so.. which versions does refreshVerions need to check and display on comments? pretty much just the latest snapshot, release and such right? i am mentioning this because other gradle plugins seem to do this.. they add dependencies with
version = "+"
, resolve them and then compare versions at the very least this will always work
refreshVersions needs to know all the releases since the currently used one because one might want to upgrade to an intermediate version like the latest beta or stable one, but not the latest alpha.
FYI, refreshVersions initially did that
version trick early in the project history, but it was very very slow, we didn't have parallelization (though it might be possible to hack?), and it didn't offer seeing all the available updates.
