Hi Alexey,

You make a good point, Borland does have some good Ant features, however I 
believe Ant's Nest is more user-friendly. A tool should be independent of 
the JDK the user owns, true. But for me to do that I would have to bundle 
the Java 1.5 gear in with the download and that would put a lot of people 
off downloading a now bigger file. It will definetely be something I will 
look at in the future though, your feedback is appreciated. And there's 
always the fact that Ant's Nest is 100% free, in price and in ownership :-p
