Beta expires today

Thursday, August 30, 2007

Today the beta of Virtual Ant expires. Although we had planned to do a release by this time we came across some major problems accommodating some of the new features in Virtual Ant (not present in the beta).

I would remind the readers again to not to judge the quality of Virtual Ant by the beta since a lot has changed since then. The current beta was more like an alpha really. If things go well we will try to come up with a 2nd, more complete beta before the final release.

As a hint of the new features, Virtual Ant can now handle multiple build files and allows stepping in/out of tasks. So tasks like 'import', 'ant', 'antcall' now work seamlessly in Virtual Ant. I will talk more about this along with screenshots very soon.

Of course, we would love to hear your feedback on how you found the beta so keep them coming :)

Please make it available. I want to try the product (regardless it's not full featured yet)
