The Apache Ant Team is pleased to announce the releases of Apache Ant
1.9.11 and 1.10.3.

Apache Ant is a Java library and command-line tool that helps building
software.

The Apache Ant team currently maintains two lines of development. The
1.9.x releases require Java5 at runtime and 1.10.x requires Java8 at
runtime. Both lines are based off of Ant 1.9.7 and the 1.9.x releases
are mostly bug fix releases while additional new features are developed
for 1.10.x. We recommend using 1.10.3 unless you are required to use
versions of Java prior to Java8 during the build process.

Ant 1.10.3 contains a superset of 1.9.11 - with the exception of a few
tasks and features that no longer work with Java8 anyway (like the apt
task).

Both releases are mostly bug fix releases with a few new features being
added. Ant 1.10.2 introduced a number of regressions that are now fixed
in 1.10.3.

Ant 1.10.3 introduces initial support for JUnit5 in the form of the
junitlauncher task. The new task is fully functional but currently lacks
a few features like forking a new JVM for tests which will be added in
upcoming releases.

Source and binary distributions are available for download from the
Apache Ant download site:

http://ant.apache.org/bindownload.cgi
http://ant.apache.org/srcdownload.cgi

When downloading, please verify signatures using the KEYS file available
at the above location when downloading the release.

Changes in 1.10.3 include:
==========================

Changes that could break older environments:
- -------------------------------------------

  * Previous versions of Ant's copy task would throw a BuildException
    if the "name" of the resource to copy was null. Starting
    this version, the copy task instead silently skips such resources
    and no longer throws an exception.
    ant-dev list https://www.mail-archive.com/dev@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx/msg46634.html

  * Reverted the signature change of various clone method
    implementation in Ant's data-types introduced with 1.10.2 as they
    broke subclasses of said data-types which tried to override clone.

Fixed bugs:
- -----------

  * Fixed NullPointerException in ChainedMapper
    Bugzilla Report 62086

  * Fixed NullPointerException when a mappedresource is used in pathconvert
    Bugzilla Report 62076

  * Fixed an issue where a string, when used as a resource collection, within
    tokens, would be replaced by property values
    Bugzilla Report 62147

  * Added a workaround for a bug in the jarsigner tool to <verifyjar>
    which requires the -storepass command line argument when verifying
    signatures using -strict together with a PKCS12 keystore. Unlike
    when signing the jar it will not prompt for the keystore's password
    and read it from standard input.
    This means Ant will now pass the keystore's password on the command
    line when using <verifyjar>, which poses a security risk you should
    be aware of.
    Bugzilla Report 62194

Other changes:
- --------------

  * Allow Saxon to be used for junitreport XSL transformation
    Github Pull Request #57

  * when running on Java 11+ rmic will fail early if iiop or idl are
    requested. Java11 removes support for CORBA and the switches have
    been removed from the rmic tool.

  * A new junitlauncher task which support JUnit 5 test framework.
    Bugzilla Report 61796
