Subject [ANN] Apache Compress Antlib 1.3 Released
Date Thu, 07 Nov 2013 12:12:17 GMT
Hash: SHA1

The Apache Compress Antlib offers tasks and types for the archive and
compression formats like CPIO, XZ, Pack200, LZMA, ARJ, 7z and AR
supported by Apache Commons Compress as well as re-implementations of
the formats already supported by Ant's core.

Version 1.3 catches up with Apache Commons Compress 1.6 and adds tasks
and resources for LZMA compression and ARJ as well as 7z archives.  The
LZMA and ARJ formats are read-only and ARJ doesn't support compression.
The 7z tasks and types only work on files but not on arbitrary

Support for the XZ and LZMA compression formats is based on the XZ for
Java library of the Tukaani Project[1], which is required at runtime in
addition to Commons Compress.  Some 7z archives will require LZMA
support and thus XZ for Java as well.

Source and binary distributions are available from the Apache Ant
download site:
