Subject Re: AW: Eclipse still using Ant 1.6.5 because of bug in Ant 1.7.0
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2007 00:20:56 GMT
Eclipse 3.3.* ships with Ant 1.7.0

We were able to come up with a workaround for the Ant problem on Windows 
and decided to ship with the known problem for Mac and Unix machines as 
outlined in where it also 
outlines that this problem is fixed in the Ant 1.7.1 stream.

We will move to the Ant 1.7.1 release as soon as we can get our hands on 
it and it makes it through the Eclipse IP review.
Unfortunately this is not looking good for Eclipse 3.3.2 as we are running 
out of time.

Of course a user can point the Eclipse Ant home to a new Ant release and 
make use of Ant 1.7.1 as soon as it is released if they so desire.

Thanks for the bandwidth
