  -  <section name="Ant 2.0 Requirements">
  -    <p>Ant has been in use for quite some time and has been used in ways never conceived
when it
  -       was originally written. While Ant 1.x has continued to sucessfully evolve and grow,
there 
  -       are a number of limitations and inconsistencies that are now apparent and which
need to 
  -       be addressed. 
  -    </p>
  -    
  -    <p>
  -       As we continue to evolve and enhance Ant 1.x, it is now time to define what Ant
2.0 will
  -       encompass. Ant 2.0 will be a major rearchitecting of Ant. It has a number of goals
including:
  -    </p>
  -       <ul>
  -         <li>Define the "contract" with build file writers to which Ant will be bound.</li>
  -         <li>Define the "contract" between the Ant core and Task writers.</li>
  -         <li>Make Ant more easily extendable by allowing additional tasks to be "dropped"
in.</li>
  -         <li>Allow Ant to function as a component to simplify integration with GUIs
and IDEs.</li>
  -         <li>Make Ant more regular and logical.</li>
  -       </ul>
  -     <p>       
  -       It is expected that Ant 2.0 will break Ant 1.x based build files. The intention
is to
  -       make this the last time that will happen.
  -     </p>
  -     
  -     <p>
  -        To advance the definition of Ant, user requirements are now being accepted on the

  -        Ant-Dev mailing list. Any requirement will be accepted for consideration. The 
  -        requirements are being collected into a document which is available 
  -        <a href="ant2/requested-features.txt">on-line</a>. New features will
be excepted 
  -        until March 21st, 2001. At that time, each requirement will be discussed 
  -        for inclusion in an Ant 2.0 requirement document.
  -      </p>
  -      
  -      <p>
  -        For your reference some of the goals which have shaped the development of Ant 1.x
are
  -        available <a href="ant2/original-specification.html">here</a>. These
continue to be
  -        relevant to Ant 2.0.
  -      </p>

  -      Ant 2.0 Requirements
  -    </h3>
  -                        <p>Ant has been in use for quite some time and has been used
in ways never conceived when it
  -       was originally written. While Ant 1.x has continued to sucessfully evolve and grow,
there 
  -       are a number of limitations and inconsistencies that are now apparent and which
need to 
  -       be addressed. 
  -    </p>
  -                                <p>
  -       As we continue to evolve and enhance Ant 1.x, it is now time to define what Ant
2.0 will
  -       encompass. Ant 2.0 will be a major rearchitecting of Ant. It has a number of goals
including:
  -    </p>
  -                                <ul>
  -         <li>Define the "contract" with build file writers to which Ant will be bound.</li>
  -         <li>Define the "contract" between the Ant core and Task writers.</li>
  -         <li>Make Ant more easily extendable by allowing additional tasks to be "dropped"
in.</li>
  -         <li>Allow Ant to function as a component to simplify integration with GUIs
and IDEs.</li>
  -         <li>Make Ant more regular and logical.</li>
  -       </ul>
  -                                <p>       
  -       It is expected that Ant 2.0 will break Ant 1.x based build files. The intention
is to
  -       make this the last time that will happen.
  -     </p>
  -                                <p>
  -        To advance the definition of Ant, user requirements are now being accepted on the

  -        Ant-Dev mailing list. Any requirement will be accepted for consideration. The 
  -        requirements are being collected into a document which is available 
  -        <a href="ant2/requested-features.txt">on-line</a>. New features will
be excepted 
  -        until March 21st, 2001. At that time, each requirement will be discussed 
  -        for inclusion in an Ant 2.0 requirement document.
  -      </p>
  -                                <p>
  -        For your reference some of the goals which have shaped the development of Ant 1.x
are
  -        available <a href="ant2/original-specification.html">here</a>. These
continue to be
  -        relevant to Ant 2.0.
  -      </p>
  -                                <p>

  -        <a href="mail.html">Ant-Dev mailing list</a> and contribute
  -        your ideas.
