Ant 1.8 Planning Section

Projects we depend on and their forthcoming releases

Projects that depend upon us, and their cutoff dates


This is just an initial mixture of "nice to have", "controversial" and "necessary" features.

They will get modified a lot during the 1.8 coding phase.

''Want'' Features

Less critical, but still nice. Adding here is also a statement of intent.

''Want'' Features Implemented

''Like'' Features

Less important stuff.

From 1.7.0 wontfix:


Platforms to test on. We may want to formally remove support for platforms that are unsupported by their vendor. That means Java1.2 and Win98.

(Java 1.3 is EOL as of the Java 6 release. -Jesse)

Linux Platforms should cover common distros: RHEL, Suse. Debian (Ubuntu)?. SysV Unix can be delegated to the vendors, say AIX and HPUX. Solaris is also a possibility, if a VMware image is available.


Old JDKs can be downloaded from Suns archive


MAY Pass

WONTFIX this release

Definitely not in this release. Pull stuff down here when scrubbed from the previous lists.
