Last weekend Antoine announced Ant 1.8.1. This is more or less a pure bugfix release which addresses a few important issues. The fix with the biggest impact likely is that <extension-point> and <import> finally work together as intended - and even documented.

The full list of issues raised against Ant that have been fixed with this release can be found in Bugzilla. We've adressed almost all issues raised against Ant 1.8.0 so far.

Thanks to the new <augment> task, detecting Ant 1.8.1 means either

  <antversion property="Ant-1.8.1-or-later"


  <available property="Ant-1.8.1-or-later"
