Comment (by bdubbs):

 Changes from Ant 1.10.5 TO Ant 1.10.6

 Changes that could break older environments:

  * image task no longer works on Java 9+ because internal classes
    supporting Java Advanced Imaging are removed; imageio task (based on
    ImageIO and AWT) is provided as a replacement.

  * junitlauncher task has changed the class names and package names of
    the task as well as some of the supporting classes of that task. If
    any code depended on these class or package names, they will have to
    be updated to reference these newly named classes. This however,
    doesn't impact build scripts if their reference to junitlauncher task
    was merely through the use of the <junitlauncher> element.

  * ClearCase#runS has been augmented by a two arg-version and the
    one-arg version will no longer be called. This may affect
    subclasses that have overridden runS.

 Fixed bugs:

  * fetch.xml must retrieve runtime rather than compile dependencies for
    mail task.

  * Fixes an issue in junitreport task, which used to throw a
    java.net.MalformedURLException when saxon was used on Windows OS.

  * augment task now throws a BuildException (as noted in its manual)
    instead of a IllegalStateException in the absence of the "id"

  * org.apache.tools.zip.ZipOutputStream would sometimes potentially use
    an incorrect compression level for a zip entry. This is now fixed.

  * sync task, in some cases on case insensitive file systems, would
    a file in a destination directory to be orphaned and would delete it.
    This task has now been fixed to infer the case sensitivity of the
    of the destination directory.

  * Fixes a potential java.util.ConcurrentModificationException in

  * cccheckout would ignore an error of the "ls checkout" command even
    if failOnError was set to false.

  * The isreachable condition could in some cases return true even if the
    actual address could potentially be unreachable. This is now fixed
    and the resolved address is actually checked for reachability.

  * Fixes an issue where scp transfer completion tracking wasn't being
    triggered for 100% completion.

 Other changes:

  * generatekey task now supports SubjectAlternativeName during key

  * the <modified> selector has a new built-in algorithm 'lastmodified'
    which computes a value based upon the lastmodified time of the file.

  * junitlauncher task now supports running tests in a forked JVM. More
    details available in the junitlauncher task manual.

  * signjar and verifyjar now support the -providerName, -providerClass
    and -providerArg command line options of keytool via new attributes.

  * signjar and verifyjar now supported nested <arg> elements for
    command line arguments that are not supported explicitly by the
    tasks via attributes.

  * added several attributes to <javadoc> that support modules.

  * properties used or set by BuildFileTask/BuildFileRule are documented
    in MagicTestNames. A new magic property, ant.test.basedir.ignore, is
    introduced for cases where Ant projects set up for test purposes
    must ignore basedir set externally by test harness.

  * a new CharSet type is provided for encoding or charset attributes in
    tasks that must deal with different character encodings in files,
    file names and other string resources.

  * org.apache.tools.ant.AntClassLoader is now multi-release jar aware.
    Starting Java 9, jar files can be packaged as multi-release jars,
    AntClassLoader now recognizes such multi-release jar files while
    loading resources at runtime in Java 9+ runtime environments.

  * Added jmod and link tasks, to support jmod and jlink tools of JDK 9+.

  * Jsch library dependency has now been upgraded to 0.1.55. Jsch is
    the library behind the sshexec and scp Ant tasks.

  * The "http" condition, now has a "readTimeout" attribute which can be
    used to control the amount of time to wait for the read to complete.

  * ftp task manual has been updated to mention that the remote listing of
    files honours the followsymlinks attribute.
