Subject EasyAnt 0.6 released !
Date Mon, 22 Jun 2009 14:22:19 GMT
The EasyAnt project is pleased to announce its 0.6 version.

Easyant is a build system, that is based on Apache Ant and Apache Ivy.

Our goals are :
    * to leverage popularity and flexibility of Ant.
    * to integrate Apache Ivy, such that the build system combines a
ready-to-use dependency manager.
    * to simplify standard build types, such as building web applications,
JARs etc, by providing ready to use builds.
    * to provide conventions and guidelines.
    * to make plugging-in of fresh functionalities easy as writing simple
Ant scripts as Easyant plugins.

To still remain adaptable,
    * Though Easyant comes with a lot of conventions, we never lock you in.
    * Easyant allows you to easily extend existing modules or create and use
your own modules.
    * Easyant makes migration from Ant very simple. Your legacy Ant scripts
could still be leveraged with Easyant.

This version focus on :
    * a better support for multi module projects
    * adding support to build configurations (similar to profile in maven
world see for more
    * a new core offering api that can work in embebbed mode
    * a cleaner repository structure used to store easyant plugins / build
    * introducing a way to skip an entire module
    * adding support for variables replacements inside module.ivy
    * a module for antunit test
    * a module to generate plugin documentation
    * documentation / javadoc
    * a few tests to enhance easyant-core stability
    * several bug fixes on plugins

For recall, as the project is still in an early phase, easyant plugins are
still unstable and can move on next releases.
