    Release Notes: A new top level element, extension-point, allows build files to be extended with custom targets more easily. The "if" and "unless" attributes will be evaluated according to the values of the properties entered if these properties evaluate to true, false, on, or off. Ant now requires Java 1.4 or later. A new task, include, provides an alternative to <import> that should be preferred when you don't want to override any targets. Numerous bugfixes and improvements were made.

        Release Notes: A resource framework was introduced. Some of the core ant tasks such as copy 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 version starts outsourcing of optional tasks to Antlibs. The .NET antlib replaces the .NET optional tasks. Support for the version control system Subversion is also provided as an antlib. A large number of bugs were fixed. Some initial support for Java6 features was added.
