I know, thanks for the offer.

I'll post the result of what I have and your feedback tomorrow to
Usenet and FreshMeat.  Expecting a new all time high on these funny
graphs <>.

It has to be rather short for FreshMeat (< 600 characters) and I don't
think keeping it short would hurt for Usenet either. Err, and

We don't need to explain what Ant is IMHO, people know that, just what
the major changes for this release are.  OK, here we go:

| This release features improved support for JDK 1.4.  Not only does Ant
| itself build and test completely on 1.4, support to compile with
| assertions has also been added.
| Ant 1.5 supports new platforms with Netware and z/OS and MacOS X
| support has been improved.
| Among the many new tasks and features there is now support for user
| input, BZIP2 archives, checksums and a built-in task for server
| deployment.

Almost exactly 400 chars 8-)  
Too many "support"s IMHO.
