Version 1.5.2 of Apache Ant

Release Notes: This release is a collection of bugfixes which were made since 1.5.1. The only added functionality is that Ant can now create ZIP archives that store Unix file permissions in a way that is compatible with InfoZip's tools. Zip/jar updating will now consult the content of existing archives to determine whether an item is out of date. There are fixes to the wrapper scripts for Windows (both .bat and the Cygwin-sh variety). The classloader behavior for non-forked Java and junit tasks is much better on JDK 1.4.

Upgrading to jsch 0.1.50 is recommended for users of the SSH/SCP tasks under Java 1.7. "if" and "unless" XML namespaces were introducted, making it possible to put conditions on all tasks and nested elements. Bugs were fixed.

        Release Notes: This is the first Ant release that requires at least Java 1.5. It has support for @Ignore annotation and a requirement of JUnit 4.11. The zip, bzip2, and tar are improved. The Perforce Ant tasks have been removed; users of these tasks can use the tasks supplied by Perforce Inc. instead, which contain more functionality and connect natively to the Perforce servers. There are numerous bugfixes and improvements as documented in Bugzilla and in the release notes.
