Neat idea!

A manifest resource can be loaded using

<javaresource name="META-INF/MANIFEST.MF" classpath="${velocity.jar}"/>

but when I tried this it found one of the JVM manifests rather than
the velocity one.

I then tried <zipentry> instead, and this works:

<loadresource property="implementation.version">
<zipentry name="META-INF/MANIFEST.MF" archive="${velocity.jar}"/>
<filterchain>
<linecontains>
<contains value="Implementation-Version: "/>
</linecontains>
<tokenfilter>
<!-- Remove all but the revision number -->
<replaceregex pattern=".+: " replace=""/>
</tokenfilter>
</filterchain>
</loadresource>
<echo>${implementation.version}</echo>

However, this only applies if the script knows the name of the velocity jar.

If the jar is only available via a classpath, it gets a lot harder.

Maybe there should be an Ant task to look up / parse manifests...
