Moving to Ant 1.7.1
Apache Ant 1.7.1 was released yesterday.
This release is mostly bug fixes and corrections of regressions introduced in Ant 1.7.0 with some tantalizing hints of performance improvements. The full release notes can be found here.
I have started on the work to move Eclipse 3.5 to the latest and greatest and you can follow along via bug 209504.
The relevant CQ for the upgrade is 2476 (which committers can view).
I am hopeful that we will be green lighted to make use of the new parallel IP for mature projects which I mentioned here. This would allow for the new Ant version to be pushed to CVS sooner and have the Eclipse community help find any issues.
There are several bugs logged against Eclipse that likely will just disappear with the upgrade to the new Ant release : Bug 187993, Bug 197909.
Off to do the work and more testing to make sure everything still works on 1.7.1.
