What is expected result of this script in
Ant1.1 and Ant1.2 ??

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<project name="sample" default="all" basedir=".">

    <target name="all" depends="sample1,sample2"/>

    <target name="sample1">
	<property name="prop1" value="sample1"/>
	<echo message="${prop1}"/>

    <target name="sample2">
	<property name="prop1" value="sample2"/>
	<echo message="${prop1}"/>


What NEW ???
* Semantics of <property> has changed again in the hope to be more
intuitive. ${} expansion now happens at runtime and <property> tags
living inside of targets only take effect if they are visited at

Take a test ...
