Release Notes: Nested elements for namespaced tasks and types may belong to the Ant default namespace as well as the task's or type's namespace, All exceptions thrown by tasks are now wrapped in a buildexception giving the location in the buildfile of the task. This release fixes a large number of bugs and adds a number of requested features.
Release Notes: This release is under the Apache License 2.0. It fixes several bugs, most notably the handling of the default namespace for nested elements. It also introduces initial support for compiling with Java 1.5.

Release Notes: This release adds a lot of new features, most prominently support for XML namespaces as well as a new concept of Ant libraries that makes use of namespaces to avoid name clashes of custom tasks. Other features include macrodef and presetdef to simplify repeated tasks in build files, ssh tasks, and a number of minor new features and bug fixes.
Release Notes: The macrodef task uses a different syntax to expand attributes now to highlight the fact that they are not properties. The usage of XML namespaces inside Ant has been adapted to better match the expectations of namespace aware tools. As always a couple of bugs found in the previous beta releases have been fixed. This release introduces some slight incompatibilities with the previous beta releases but is expected to be fully compatible with the final release of Ant 1.6.
Release Notes: Ant 1.6 adds a lot of new features over 1.5. Most notably, support for XML namespaces and a new concept of Ant libraries that uses namespaces to avoid name clashes have been added. A lot of new tasks have been added. Most prominently, support for SSH is now available with the help of the JSch library. This is the first version of Ant that requires a JDK 1.2 or later to run.
Release Notes: This version's <javah> task now works on JDK 1.4.2, and some problems with the Visual Age for Java tasks were fixed.
Release Notes: The zip task family in Ant 1.5.2 contained a couple of serious bugs that have been fixed. In addition, two regressions in the FTP and manifest tasks have been detected. This final release also contains some other minor bugfixes.

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.
