Subject [ANN] Ant 1.7.0 Released
Date Wed, 20 Dec 2006 03:22:22 GMT

We have the pleasure to announce the release of Apache Ant 1.7.0.

Ant 1.7 introduces a resource framework. Some of the core ant tasks  
such as <copy/> are now able to process not only file system  
resources but also zip entries, tar entries, paths, ... Resource  
collections group resources, and can be further combined with  
operators such as union and intersection. This can be extended by  
custom resources and custom tasks using resources.

Ant 1.7 starts outsourcing of optional tasks to Antlibs. The .NET  
antlib replaces the .NET optional tasks which ship in Ant. Support  
for the version control system Subversion is also provided as an antlib.

Ant 1.7 fixes also a large number of bugs.

Ant 1.7 has some initial support for Java6 features.
