Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Ant 1.9.14 released
Date Sun, 17 Mar 2019 14:41:24 GMT
The Apache Ant Team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Ant 1.9.14.

Apache Ant is a Java library and command-line tool that helps building
software.

The Apache Ant team currently maintains two lines of development. The
1.9.x releases require Java5 at runtime and 1.10.x requires Java8 at
runtime. Both lines are based off of Ant 1.9.7 and the 1.9.x releases
are mostly bug fix releases while additional new features are developed
for 1.10.x. We recommend using 1.10.5 unless you are required to use
versions of Java prior to Java8 during the build process.

This, Ant 1.9.14, release mainly consists of bug fixes and some
enhancements in the "signjar" and "verifyjar" tasks.

Source and binary distributions are available for download from the
Apache Ant download site:

http://ant.apache.org/bindownload.cgi
http://ant.apache.org/srcdownload.cgi

When downloading, please verify signatures using the KEYS file available
at the above location when downloading the release.

Changes in 1.19.14 include:
==========================

Changes that could break older environments:
-------------------------------------------

 * ClearCase#runS has been augmented by a two arg-version and the
   one-arg version will no longer be called. This may affect
   subclasses that have overridden runS.

Fixed bugs:
-----------

 * fetch.xml must retrieve runtime rather than compile dependencies for
   mail task.
   Bugzilla Report 62621

 * augment task now throws a BuildException (as noted in its manual)
   instead of a IllegalStateException in the absence of the "id" attribute.
   Bugzilla Report 62655

 * org.apache.tools.zip.ZipOutputStream would sometimes potentially use
   an incorrect compression level for a zip entry. This is now fixed.
   Bugzilla Report 62686

 * cccheckout would ignore an error of the "ls checkout" command even
   if failOnError was set to false.
   Bugzilla Report 63071

Other changes:
--------------
 * generatekey task now supports SubjectAlternativeName during key
   generation.

 * the &lt;modified> selector has a new built-in algorithm 'lastmodified'
   which computes a value based upon the lastmodified time of the file.

 * signjar and verifyjar now support the -providerName, -providerClass
   and -providerArg command line options of keytool via new attributes.
   Bugzilla Report 65234

 * signjar and verifyjar now supported nested &lt;arg> elements for
   command line arguments that are not supported explicitly by the
   tasks via attributes.

 * added several attributes to &lt;javadoc> that support modules.
   Bugzilla Report 62424

 * Jsch library dependency has now been upgraded to 0.1.55. Jsch is
   the library behind the sshexec and scp Ant tasks.
   Github Pull Request #84

 * ftp task manual has been updated to mention that the remote listing of
   files honours the followsymlinks attribute.
   Bugzilla Report 63226
