Subject Kundo, a next generation Ant build system
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2009 14:51:52 GMT
Hello Everyone,

 I'd like to announce the 0.9 release of Kundo.

Kundo offers a structured, convention based approach to Java builds.
Kundo is built on Ant and has a pluggable, extensible
architecture offering a highly configurable build framework.

Kundo achieves this flexibility with a plug-in architecture that
attaches behaviours (provided by Kundo plug-ins) to configurable build
lifecycle phases.

Kundo is made up of a kernel and a set of foundation plug-ins. A plug-in
can be thought of as an Ant build file consisting of a set of related
targets that can be called individually or chained by specifying
lifecycle phases that depend on those targets.

Kundo uses dependency management to locate it's plug-ins and also offers
dependency management to the project being built. Dependencies can be
specified in a variety of ways, and those ways are still growing, so you
should find a way that suits you.

We believe Kundo offers the flexibility of Ant, if you want to
supplement the plug-in features by wiring an Ant target in a build file
you can, and also offers the powerful dependency management and
repository features of Maven while still keeping things simple.

Please have a look and let us know what you think:
