Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Compress Antlib 1.1 Released
Date Sat, 05 Nov 2011 11:17:20 GMT
The Apache Compress Antlib offers tasks and types for the archive and
compression formats like CPIO, Pack200 and AR supported by Apache
Commons Compress as well as re-implementations of the formats already
supported by Ant's core.

Version 1.1 embraces Apache Commons Compress 1.3 and thus adds support
for Zip64 extensions (i.e. ZIP archives > 4 GB), the Pack200 format and
read-only support for the Unix dump format.  With this change the
Compress Antlib now requires Java5 at runtime.

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


Please verify signatures using the KEYS file available at the above
location when downloading the release.

For complete information on the Compress Antlib, including instructions
on how to submit bug reports, patches, or suggestions for improvement,
