genjava and actionlib. Error generating action messages

I'm using genjava from debs to build a package that includes actions as described in the tutorials:

This has worked fine for me until recently. A couple of days ago I've installed ros Indigo in a new pc and when trying to compile that package, I get the following error:

What went wrong:
Could not resolve all dependencies for configuration ':runtime'.
Could not find org.ros.rosjava_messages:actionlib:1.11.6.
  Searched in the following locations:

It seems that the autogenerated 'build.gradle' file for that package in the 'build' folder contains the following dependency that should not be there:

dependencies {
    compile 'org.ros.rosjava_bootstrap:message_generation:[0.2,0.3)'
    compile 'org.ros.rosjava_messages:actionlib:1.11.6'   <================ THIS!!!!!!!!!
    compile 'org.ros.rosjava_messages:roscpp:1.11.20'
    compile 'org.ros.rosjava_messages:std_msgs:0.5.10'
    compile 'org.ros.rosjava_messages:actionlib_msgs:1.11.9'

If I remove that line and compile the project with ./gradlew everything is generated as it should.

Searching for an answer, I've read that there has recently been an update of the actionlib. Maybe there is a mismatch between genjava and the new actionlib package? Is there a way to patch this without having to manualy delete that line each time I compile the package?

many thanks in advance.

No mismatch, but the maven repository just doesn't seem to have been updated with 1.11.6 (see here). Perhaps report at the issue tracker?

Yeah, you're right. I've already done so. Thanks for your prompt response.

While this gets fixed, is there a workaround so as not to edit the 'build.gradle' each time I compile the package?

Thanks and best regards.

Looks like it is still broken.
