1.7.0

A resource framework was introduced. Some of the
core ant tasks such as copy are now able to
process not only file system resources but also
zip entries, tar entries, and paths. Resource
collections group resources, and can be further
combined with operators such as union and
intersection. This version starts outsourcing of
optional tasks to Antlibs. The .NET antlib
replaces the .NET optional tasks. Support for the
version control system Subversion is also provided
as an antlib. A large number of bugs were fixed.
Some initial support for Java6 features was added.
