Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Ivy 2.5.0 released
Date Fri, 25 Oct 2019 05:27:06 GMT
The Apache Ivy project is pleased to announce its 2.5.0 release.

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

Key features of this 2.5.0 release are:

    - The minimum runtime Java version required is now Java 7

    - Ivy now uses BouncyCastle OpenPGP API 1.59. Due to the non
backward compatibility of that library, earlier versions are not supported.

    - Ivy now uses HttpComponents HttpClient 4.5.x version with HTTP
backed resolvers. Users are expected to have this version of the library
(and its dependencies) in their runtime classpath if they want to use
such resolvers. The previous (similarly named but not the same)
commons-httpclient library is no longer used or supported.

Other than this, there have been numerous issues that have been fixed
(since 2.4.0) and some enhancements too. The complete set of changes is
available in release notes here

Migration note:

Users moving from 2.5.0-rc1 are highly recommend to use a fresh/new
local Ivy cache directory for this release, to avoid certain issues with
metadata files that might have been cached in the local directory, from
previous version of Ivy.

Issues should be reported to:
