Subject: Questions about Ant

James Duncan Davidson., "the author in exile".

no date. Ant1.5 comes out around the end of this month. we havent really
begun coding 2.0 yet, though there are two prototypes underway that could
provide the codebase for it.

What Tomcat 3.1 released as ant 1.0 was really ant 0.9; the real '1.0'
release was ant 1.1. Clear?

well, edit external.xml in the CVS tree, send in a patch and we will add it.

I'd like to see your article. Send out a copy before it is published and i
will sanity check it. Too many ant articles are written by people that dont
understand ant in depth, and they propagate misconceptions.
