Subject Easyant 0.8 released !
Date Tue, 10 Aug 2010 14:54:09 GMT
The EasyAnt project is pleased to announce its 0.8 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.
