1.7.0 works for me.

This sort of problem is usually caused by something being missing from
the $ANT_HOME/lib directory or using an old not java 5 VM.  Make sure
you are running ant with a recent jre.  Also, if you are using debian
(and probably ubuntu) make sure you have the ant-optional package
installed.  If you are using something else, then someone else might
know the equivalent package.

Regards,
 Mark.
