Many thanks for this, looks like some really good improvements whcih
will make my life much easier :)

Is there a Roadmap with planned releases available?
E.G. have we any idea how long before 1.8.0 final will be out?

I can find the bug list but no rough release dates or if there are
going to be more than one RC, which would be good information to know
as I work in build infrastructure and have timelines for projects
built on the top of ant.

Many thanks,
