Ant 1.5.1

This is the 1.5.1 version of Ant. It is available in both binary and source distributions.

Note: The tar files in the distribution use GNU tar extensions and must be untarred with a GNU compatible version of tar. The version of tar on Solaris and Mac OS X will not work with these files


The changes from Release 1.5 to this release are detailed below. Please refer to the WHATSNEW file for more information.

Thank you for using Ant.

PGP Signatures

Many of the distribution kits have been digitally signed (using PGP). If so, there will be an accompanying distribution.asc file in the same directory as the distribution. The PGP keys can be found in the distribution directory at <>.

Always test available signatures, e.g.,
> pgpk -a KEYS
> pgpv jakarta-ant-src-1.5.1.tar.gz.asc
> pgp -ka KEYS
> pgp jakarta-ant-src-1.5.1.tar.gz.asc
> gpg --import KEYS
> gpg --verify jakarta-ant-src-1.5.1.tar.gz.asc
