Do beware, though, that SE silently fails to correctly extract filenames 
over 32 characters in length.

Very tedious.

I have been using a TiBook 667 for all of my development lately, and ANT 
is a major part of it.  I am still using beta2, but expect a rapid move 
to final release as soon as it is available.

FWIW, I still want an IDE with code completion and decent ANT 
integration for the "new code development" part of the cycle, but for 
the nightly builds, cvs access, and making sure every _other_ part of 
the development system is up to scratch, ANT is hard to beat.

About the only complaint I am getting is that since I cannot use both a 
MailLogger and a NoBannerLogger, the "build failed" emails from our 
project are quite long.

I suspect we will like it even more once we have more thorough unit 
testing in our products.
