Subject [DISCUSS] Ivy 2.0.0-rc1 announcement
Date Tue, 23 Sep 2008 14:42:17 GMT
The vote for Ivy 2.0.0-rc1 is now over (I'll send another e-mail with the
result), so it's time to make the final steps for the release. It includes
announcing the release, so what do you think of this announcement:
<date> - The Apache Ivy project is pleased to announce its
2.0.0 rc 1 version, the first 2.0.0 final release candidate.

Ivy is a tool for managing (recording, tracking, resolving and
reporting) project dependencies, characterized by flexibility,
configurability, and tight integration with Apache Ant.

This is a release candidate for 2.0.0 final, meaning that no changes
except bug fixes will occur before this release candidate and 2.0.0 final.
Problems found at this phase can be fixed in the final release, so now
is a good time to download and use it. If no outstanding bugs are reported
in the coming weeks, this release candidate will be promoted as 2.0.0 final.

Key changes in this 2.0.0-rc1 version are
* enhanced Maven2 compatibility, with several bug fixes and more
  pom features covered
* better and more homogeneous relative paths handling
* better support for local builds
* 80+ bug fixes as documented in Jira and in the release notes

Issues should be reported to:
