Gradle just published big blog post about future of native build support.
They deprecated Software Model and will continue evolution of native build support with current build model.
I know, that kotlin-native has own plugin and not related somehow to Software Model.
But it would be nice if kotlin-native plugin would be compatible with new Gradle plugins for cpp and swift and some upcoming features of other native plugins on Gradle

I never been a fan of gradle, all it does is slow down building
maybe it'll change with java AOT compilation, but that's not for the near future

scellow - Would you be willing to approach Cedric about getting Kobalt to support Kotlin Native? Kobalt is supposed to be significantly faster than both Gradle, and Maven when it comes to building Kotlin based projects.

I'd prefer to stay away from JVM based tools for compiling stuff, maybe if it is AOT compiled why not, i don't want to rely on a deamon for a compiler to be fully usable
i hope kotlin compiler will be ported to native at some point 😛

@sksk Gradle native builds use system native compilers, Gradle used only for configuration

My experience has been that Gradle is fast, and seems to only be getting faster. I've fallen more in love with it the faster it makes things.
