Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Ant 1.10.10 released
Date Mon, 19 Apr 2021 07:25:02 GMT
The Apache Ant Team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Ant 

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

The Apache Ant team currently maintains two lines of development. The 
1.9.x releases require Java 5 at runtime and 1.10.x requires Java 8 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 1.10.10 unless you are required to use 
versions of Java prior to Java 8 during the build process.

Ant 1.10.10 contains various bug fixes as well as some enhancements. The 
complete set of changes is listed at the end of this mail.

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

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

Changes in 1.10.10 are as follows:

Fixed bugs:

  * SCP (with sftp=true) task would fail if fetching file located in 
root directory
    Bugzilla Report 64742

  * javac task would fail if the arguments file it (internally) created 
didn't quote
    the # character. This has now been fixed.
    Bugzilla Reports 64912, 64790

  * made sure LegacyXmlResultFormatter encodes characters illegal in
    XML the same way JUnit5's built-in formatter would.
    Bugzilla Report 65030

  * LegacyXmlResultFormatter no longer double-encodes <>& in system-err
    and system-out
    Bugzilla Report 63436

  * Fixes a bug in junitlauncher task's legacy-xml formatter, where the 
    representing a @Parameterized JUnit4 test wasn't being reported in 
the XML.
    Bugzilla Report 64952

  * Fixes a bug where the ant-testutil-sources.jar that gets published 
to Maven
    central repository didn't contain any source files.
    Bugzilla Report 65110

  * The <http> condition didn't follow redirects from http to https.
    Bugzilla Report 65105

  * ZipOutputStream now overrides write(int) in order to make sure
    single byte writes get the same treatment as array writes.
    Github Pull Request #145

  * Fixes a potential deadlock in junitlauncher task when using legacy-xml
    Bugzilla Report 64733

Other changes:

  * javaversion condition now has a new "atmost" attribute. See the 
    manual for more details

  * The "listener" nested element of the "junitlauncher" task now has a new
    "useLegacyReportingName" attribute which can be used to control the test
    identifiers names that get reported by the listener. See the 
    manual for more details.
    Note that this change also introduces a new 
"setUseLegacyReportingName" method
    on the
    interface. This will break backward compatibility with any of your 
    result formatters which implemented this interface and such 

    are now expected to implement this new method.

  * a new attribute preserveduplicates allows <resourcelist> to return
    the same resource multiple times when set to true.
    Bugzilla Report 64854

  * a new attribute filterbeforeconcat in <concat> can be used to
    decide whether the filterchain should be applied to the
    concatenated content (the default) or each nested resource
    individually before concatenating them.
    Bugzilla Report 64855

  * the ssh tasks now share a new nested element additionalConfig that
    can be used to set config values for the jsch Session used by the
    Bugzilla Report 65089

  * added new discardOutput and discardError properties to redirector
    and the exec, apply and java tasks which can be used to completely
    discard any (error) output. This is a platform independent
    alternative to directiong output to any kind of null device.

  * junitlauncher now prints a more useful and instantaneous summary 
    tests being run, closely matching the junit task's summary.
    Bugzilla Report 64836
