Dec 15 2007 - The Apache Ivy project is please to announce its
2.0.0 beta 1 release, a new step on the road toward 2.0 final.

Ivy is a tool for managing (recording, tracking, resolving and
reporting) project dependencies, characterized by flexibility,
configurability, and tight integration with Apache Ant.

Apache Ivy has recently graduated from the Apache Incubator as a
subproject of Apache Ant, as such this is its first release as an
official Apache project.

The status of this version is a beta, meaning that we encourage
users to try it out. This version is already providing a good stability and
robustness. API and features are still subject to change though.

Key features of the 2.0.0-beta1 release are
* enhanced Maven2 compatibility
* improved concurrency support with cache locking and atomic publish
* all tutorials have been reviewed to be in sync with 2.0 changes
* numerous bug fixes as documented in Jira and in the release notes

Issues should be reported to:
