Gradle currently uses Groovy 1.5.5 (which is known to have serious problems) and Ant 1.7.0, it would be good if the next release of Gradle used Groovy 1.5.6 and Ant 1.7.1.

Not sure this will get seen by anyone because it is closed already, but even the latest 0.6.1 stable version of gradle is still using version 1.7.0 of ant instead of 1.7.1.

It's really annoying with 1.7.0 because all of the package-info.java classes get repeatedly compiled even if they haven't changed.

Comment by Hans Dockter [ 11/Jun/09 ]

We shouldn't have closed it as Ant is not updated yet. The reason for not having updated yet, is that Ant 1.7.1 was issuing sometimes strange warnings during the test run which had no reasons and were disturbing. For 0.7 we want to switch to native test runners, so this shouldn't be an issue any longer.

Comment by Hans Dockter [ 15/Jul/09 ]

We didn't manage to finish the native test runners. Therefore we postpone the update to Ant 1.7.1 to 0.8.

Comment by Spencer Allain [ 20/Jul/09 ]

Ah, well since Groovy has been updated to 1.6.3, hopefully that will leave more time to focus on upgrading ant.

The only thing I ever saw about ant 1.7.1 upgrade problems were deprecation warnings in a groovy 1.6 beta: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GROOVY-2959.

Comment by Hans Dockter [ 24/Jul/09 ]

We got a couple of warning when using the Ant 1.7.1 Junit task. One was a complaint that a certain jar was twice in the classpath. I have just talked with Tom. He is confident to get the native test runners finished for 0.8. Which means we will finally upgrade to Ant 1.7.1 at the beginning of September.

I've made this issue specific to the Gradle 0.9 release, so that we may have a chance of actually closing it at some point. Please open a new issue for updates to dependencies needed post-0.9
