Re: Antelope StringUtils in Ant-Contrib?

Message Hi Jon,

I admit to being remiss in keeping the two projects in sync. Many of
the Antelope tasks were migrated to Ant-Contrib, and those that were are
maintained (that is, kept up to date and in sync) in both projects. I
don't control the release schedule for Ant-Contrib, which tends to be
slow. I do control the release schedule for Antelope, and changes and
updates are posted fairly frequently.

For the short term, your best bet is to use them both. I tend to use
the antlib namespace syntax, so there aren't any naming conflicts, but
that means you'll need to put the jar files in Ant's lib directory.
