A few days after Apache Commons Compress 1.3 has been released the Compress Antlib has seen a new release as well. This gives Ant support for Zip64 extensions, the Unix dump format (read-only) and the Pack200 format.

Prior to this release Pack200 support has already been available via a a task at java.net but the Compress Antlib also adds a pack200resource as well as a pack200normalize task that can be used to "normalize" a JAR so that it can be signed, packed and unpacked with the signature remaining valid.

Rather than repeating Roy's whole mail, here is the original announcement.
