Subject Re: [ANN] Ant 1.8.0RC1 released
Date Thu, 14 Jan 2010 14:08:08 GMT

Thanks for the quick response.

I realise that as an F/OSS project that timelines are not strict but
its nice to have a rough timeline.
The reason for this from my point of view is that I release a project
that is tied into the Ant version we use.  I am interested in the
1.8.0 functionallity and I have a release in the 4/6 weeks.  If there
was a planned smaller amount of time then I would probably download
and install RC1 with a view to upgrade to 1.8.0-final ASAP.

A larger time between the RC and final means that I would probably not
upgrade to 1.8.0 with the next release.

Thanks for all the work,  I will certainly try out 1.8.0 in the mean
time and report back any problems _if_ i encounter anything.

Many thanks,
