The currently released version is less than two weeks old, so the
development version is not that far different from it, to be honest,
it is almost identical to the release (two bugs fixed and some
features added).

The talks about the new task system are about Ant 2.0 which I wouldn't
expect to happen this year. There is nothing one could use here, we
are still trying to get a clear picture of what we want Ant 2.0 to be.

Personally I don't expect Ant 1.3 to break anything that worked in Ant
1.2, but there might be some significant changes for Ant 2.0 - the
changed task system shouldn't make that much of a difference BTW.

Does it a better job on dependency checking than the javac task in Ant
does? If not, why calling it? If yes, go to the CVS repository and try
to experiment with Conor's new depend task (read the code for usage
guidelines), maybe this (combined with <javac>) does what you need.
