Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 470861
please update to version 1.7
Last modified: 2012-07-16 04:40:17 EDT
currently ant-1.6.5-2jpp.2 included in rhel while ant-1.7.0 in fedora.
since even 1.7.0 is almost 2 years old (1.6.5 is more then 3 years)
there are many java packages which requires at least version 1.7. the
same problem is not apply to junit since junit 4.x called junit4, but
ant 1.7 not called ant17 like in case of automake and autoconf.
is there any way to upgrade ant to 1.7 in rhel-5.3? or is it possible to include ant17 (like automake17) as a technology preview in rhel-5.3?
thanks in advance.
or may be in 5.4?
Came across my first 1.7 requirement - icu4j. Any hope, or wait for EL6?
please close this bug as wontfix.
Ant 1.7 is going to be distributed as ant17 packkage - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=803797
