Just a quick note to mention the installation process now requires Ant 1.6.3 or higher.
Our project is using Ant 1.6.2 and I received the following error:
C:\jboss-messaging-1.2.0.CR1\util\release-admin.xml:45: The following error occurred while executing this line:
C:\jboss-messaging-1.2.0.CR1\util\release-admin.xml:680: Class org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.ConditionTask doesn't support the nested "length" element.
The nested "length" element was introduced in 1.6.3 :)
I will add this observation to the GA release notes.
We have this http://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBMESSAGING-725, which will insure the build process fails quicky and with a self-explanatory message if ant is too old. Better yet, we should ship our own embedded ant.
I don't know if this is something that is generally known, but anybody can pick an open task and send a patch for it :)
