I upgraded my ant in WSAD 4.03 to the latest Ant build, without any other
problems. If I remember it was just modifying plugin.xml, and renaming jars.
Unfortunately I've deleted the stuff of this pc, can check when I get into
work. What did u change in order to upgrade? I remember their being
anomalies in Barry Searles' instructions.
