Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Ivy 2.0.0-beta2 available
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2008 17:04:08 GMT
The Apache Ivy project is pleased to announce its
2.0.0 beta 2 release, a new step on the road toward 2.0 final.

Ivy is a tool for managing (recording, tracking, resolving and
reporting) project dependencies, characterized by flexibility,
configurability, and tight integration with Apache Ant.

This is a beta release, for wide testing with users. Problems found
at this phase can be fixed in the final release, so now is a good time to
download and use it. Although there may be some changes at
the API level, it is already being in production builds in many large Java

Key features of the 2.0.0-beta2 release are
* enhanced Maven2 compatibility, with a fully rewritten pom parser
* improved cache management, including dynamic revision caching
with fine grain TTL
* namespace aware validation, allowing to use validation with
extra attributes
* easier settings loading, which do not require an id anymore
* numerous bug fixes as documented in Jira and in the release notes

Issues should be reported to:
