Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Buildr 1.4.8 released
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 21:38:43 GMT
Apache Buildr is a build system for Java-based applications, including support
for Scala, Groovy and a growing number of JVM languages and tools.  We wanted
something that's simple and intuitive to use, so we only need to tell it what
to do, and it takes care of the rest.  But also something we can easily extend
for those one-off tasks, with a language that's a joy to use.

  * Change: Revert to importing non-verbose FileUtils utility methods
to match buildr 1.4.6 release and earlier.
