Response to: So Where Is It?

I'm sorry that you feel like this, but two quick points:

  • It's mentioned in the article that this works withe the current version (1.6.5) of Ant
  • People work on open source software without being paid and in their free time, being critical of the people that work on this software because a release slipped a month (btw the first beta was released on the 29th) is showing great appreciation of their hard work - perhaps you should only use software that you bought since you don't appreciate free software

    I NEVER criticized the "people" who put in the hard work on this product, nor on Kev's individual contribution, nor of the vast community of open-source developers.

    Rather, I criticized the activity of hyping a vaporware product.

    If it was publicly available for the readers of the article, then please provide a link, which you failed to do despite claiming that it was available on the 29th.

      Sorry, I read the message as inflammatory if the intention wasn't to criticize I apologize.

      For the release - http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=ant-dev&m=115399537525696&w=2 a simple google search revealed this message (note 27th July). This code is a release candidate, *not* a final release, and it's currently in testing, so 'beware dragons', caveat emptor etc. :)

      Hope that this clears up the problem of trying out the code in the article, and deflates the 'hype' somewhat. Thanks.
