The Apache Ivy project is pleased to announce its 2.3.0-RC1 release.

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

Key features of this 2.3.0-RC1 release are
* improved Ant support with some new Ant tasks and enhancements to existing tasks
* some new resolvers
* numerous bug fixes as documented in Jira and in the release notes

In addition, experimental OSGI support has been added to the Ivy core.

As a release candidate version, we strongly encourage the use of this version for
testing and validation. From now on, features are frozen until final 2.3.0 version,
only bug fixes will be applied before 2.3.0. If no outstanding bugs are reported
with this release candidate, it will promoted to 2.3.0 about three weeks after this
