-Changes from Ant 1.9.2 TO Ant 1.9.3
+Changes from Ant 1.9.3 TO Ant 1.9.4
 ===================================
 
 Changes that could break older environments:
 -------------------------------------------
 
+ * the prefixValues attribute of &lt;property> didn't work as expected
+   when set to false (the default).
+   It is quite likely existing build files relied on the wrong
+   behavior and expect Ant to resolve the value side against the
+   properties defined in the property file itself - these build files
+   must now explicitly set the prefixValues attribute to true.
+   Bugzilla Report 54769
+
+ * when matching an entry of a zip/tarfileset against a pattern a
+   leading slash will be stripped from the entry name.  Most archives
+   don't contain paths with leading slashes anyway.
+   This may cause include/exclude patterns that start with a / to stop
+   matching anything.  Such patterns only used to work by accident and
+   only on platforms with multiple file system roots.
+   Bugzilla Report 53949
+
+ * DirectoryScanner and thus fileset/dirset will now silently drop all
+   filesystem objects that are neither files nor directories according
+   to java.io.File.  This prevents Ant from reading named pipes which
+   might lead to blocking or other undefined behavior.
+   Bugzilla Report 56149
+
+ * BuildFileTest and BaseSelectorTest have both been deprecated in
+   favour of BuildFileRule and BaseSelectorRule respectively, and the
+   tests that previously extended these base tests have been converted to
+   JUnit 4 tests using the new "rule"s. Any external test that sub-classed
+   a test in the Ant workspace, rather than BuildFileTest, will need
+   changed to either use JUnit4's annotations, or be modified to
+   extend BuildFileTest directly. This will not affect any tests that are
+   being executed by Ant's junit or batchtest tasks that are not specifically
+   testing Ant's code.
 
 Fixed bugs:
 -----------
 
- * &lt;parallel> swallowed the status code of nested &lt;fail> tasks.
-   Bugzilla Report 55539.
+ * &lt;import>/&lt;include> failed when the importing file was loaded from
an
+   URI or a jar and it imported a file from the local file system via
+   an absolute path.
+   Bugzilla Report 50953
+
+ * &lt;import> could import the same resource twice when imported via
+   different resource types.
+   Bugzilla Report 55097
+
+ * several calls to File#mkdirs could fall victim to a race condition
+   where another thread already created the same directory.
+   Bugzilla Report 55290
+
+ * &lt;manifestclasspath> created '/' rather than './' for the parent
+   directory of the given jarfile.
+   Bugzilla Report 55049
+
+ * &lt;concat>'s fixlastline="true" didn't work when using certain filter
+   readers.
+   Bugzilla Report 54672
+
+ * several places where resources are read from jars will now
+   explicitly disable caching to avoid problems with reloading jars.
+   Bugzilla Report 54473
+
+ * AntClassloader will now ignore files that are part of the classpath
+   but not zip files when scanning for resources.  It used to throw an
+   exception.
+   Bugzilla Report 53964
+
+ * &lt;javadoc> caused a NullPointerException when no destdir was set.
+   Bugzilla Report 55949
+
+ * &lt;jar filesetmanifest="mergewithoutmain"> would still include the
+   Main section of the fileset manifests if there was no nested
+   manifest or manifest attribute.
+   Bugzilla Report 54171
+
+ * reading of compiler args has become more defensive
+   Bugzilla Report 53754
+
+ * &lt;copy> without force="true" would not only fail to overwrite a
+   read-only file as expected but also remove the existing file.
+   Bugzilla Report 53095
+
+ * &lt;delete removeNotFollowedSymlinks="true"> would remove symbolic
+   links to not-included files.  It will still delete symlinks to
+   directories that would have been followed even if they are not
+   explicitly included.  exclude-Patterns can still be used to
+   preserve symbolic links.
+   Bugzilla Report 53959
+
+ * Sometimes copy-operations using NIO FileChannels fail.  Ant will
+   now try to use a Stream based copy operation as fallback when the
+   Channel based copy fails.
+   Bugzilla Reports 53102 and 54397
+
+ * Javadoc.postProcessGeneratedJavadocs() fails for Classes that
+   extend Javadoc
+   Bugzilla Report 56047
+
+ * TarInputStream will now read archives created by tar
+   implementations that encode big numbers by not adding a trailing
+   NUL.
 
- * a race condition could make &lt;fixcrlf> tasks of parallel builds to
-   interfere with each other.
-   Bugzilla Report 54393.
+ * the isExists() method of URLResource returned false positives for
+   HTTP and FTP URLs.
 
- * &lt;mail>'s mailport still didn't work properly when using smtps.
-   Bugzilla Report 49267.
+Other changes:
+--------------
 
- * using attributes belonging to the if and unless namespaces
-   made macrodef fail.
-   Bugzilla Report 55885.
+ * initial support for Java 1.9
 
- * Ant 1.8 exec task changes have slowed exec to a crawl
-   Bugzilla Report 54128.
+ * &lt;sshexec> can optionally pass System.in to the remote process
+   Bugzilla Report 55393
 
- * Apt is not available under JDK 1.8
-   Bugzilla Report 55922.
+ * &lt;sshexec> now supports capturing error output of the executed
+   process and setting a property from the return code.
+   Bugzilla Report 48478
 
+ * &lt;javadoc> now has an option to fail if javadoc issues warnings.
+   Bugzilla Report 55015
 
-Other changes:
---------------
+ * &lt;sql> has a new outputencoding attribute.
+   Bugzilla Report 39541
+
+ * changes to JUnitTestRunner and PlainJUnitResultFormatter to make
+   OutOfMemoryErrors less likely.
+   Bugzilla Report 45536
+
+ * changes to DOMElementWriter to make OutOfMemoryErrors less likely.
+   Bugzilla Report 54147
+
+ * &lt;redirector> has a new attribute binaryOutput that prevents Ant
+   from splitting the output into lines.  This prevents binary output
+   from being corrupted but may lead to error and normal output being
+   mixed up.
+   Bugzilla Report 55667
+   Bugzilla Report 56156
+
+ * the nested &lt;message> elements of &lt;mail> now have an optional
+   inputEncoding attribute that can be used to specify the encoding of
+   files read that don't use the platform's default encoding.
+   Bugzilla Report 56258
 
- * Documentation fix for if/unless attributes.  PR 55359.
+ * The &lt;get> task now explicitly accepts and supports the gzip content encoding.
+   Bugzilla Report 49453
 
- * tar entries with long link names are now handled the same way as
-   entries with long names.
+ * A new resourcecollection type &lt;multirootfileset> acts like a union
+   of &lt;fileset>s and &lt;dirset>s that share the same configuration but
+   have different base directories.
+   Bugzilla Report 48621
 
- * Addition of 'skipNonTests' attribute to &lt;junit> and &lt;batchtest>
-   tasks to allow the tasks to skip classes that don't contain tests.
+ * &lt;get> has a quiet attribute that makes the task log errors only
+   when enabled.
+   GitHub Pull Request #1
 
- * &lt;filterset> now supports a nested &lt;propertyset> to specify filters.
-   Bugzilla Report 55794.
+* &lt;junit> has now a threads attribute allowing to run the tests in several threads.
+  Bugzilla Report 55925
 
- * &lt;xslt>'s params can now be typed.
-   Bugzilla Report 21525.
+* addition of a new ProcessUtil class providing the process id of the current process
 
- * build of Mac OS X pkg installer
-   Bugzilla Report 55899.
+* changes to allow to run the JUnit testcases of Ant in parallel,
+  by making them use unique temporary directories
