Subject [Fwd: [ANNOUNCEMENT] Commons-Net 1.4.0 Released]
Date Tue, 10 May 2005 12:06:41 GMT
The new release of jakarta-commons-1.4.0 contains some features that 
were specifically designed with Ant in mind.  In particular the 
FTPClientConfig class was designed with the thought of enabling the 
enhancement of the ant <ftp> task to

1. handle ftp servers with file listing formats that format dates in 
other than the standard (i.e. US English) ways.

More importantly, perhaps, for Ant
2. handle time zone differences between client and server.

This would enable dependency checking to be more usefully associated 
with the task.

In the next few weeks (months) I am intending to rework the <ftp> task 
to take advantage of these new capabilities.  This would involve adding 
some new attributes to the task and transmitting these to the 
commons-net implementation.
