Subject [ANN] Apache Ant 1.9.15 and 1.10.8 Released
Date Wed, 13 May 2020 16:30:04 GMT
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

The Apache Ant Team is pleased to announce the releases of Apache Ant
1.9.15 and 1.10.8.

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 1.10.4 unless you are required to use
versions of Java prior to Java8 during the build process.

Ant 1.10.8 contains a superset of 1.9.15 - with the exception of a few
tasks and features that no longer work with Java8 anyway (like the apt
task).

Both releases address a insecure temporary file vulnerability
vulnerability, see the upcoming CVE announcement or
https://ant.apache.org/security.html for details.

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

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

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

   exceptions that happen in @BeforeAll method of a test. This is now fixed.
