Version 1.7.0Beta2 of Apache Ant

Release Notes: This version contains some bugfixes and improvements compared to 1.7.0Beta1, particularly concerning the script task. Ant 1.7 introduces a resource framework. Some of the core ant tasks such as &lt:copy/&gt: are now able to process not only file system resources but also zip entries, tar entries, and paths. Resource collections group resources, and can be further combined with operators such as union and intersection. This can be extended by custom resources and custom tasks using resources. Ant 1.7 starts outsourcing of optional tasks to Antlibs, such as .NET, svn, and antunit.
