  1. June 13th, 2011 - The Flaka project is pleased to announce the
    release of Flaka 1.2.2.

    What's new ?
    Flaka 1.2.2 is a maintenance release, that tackles some
    minor issues :
    <let/> to overwrite userproperties
    EL functions matches() and glob() added
    Work to allow users to plug in their
    own EL functions is underway..

    Flaka is an extension for Ant that runs with Ant versions 1.7.x and
    1.8.x. A main project goal of Flaka is the simplification of writing
    a build script.

    Flaka requires:

    Ant >= 1.7.x
    Java >= 1.5

    Flaka provides:

    1. An expression language (Java Unified Expression Language) allowing
    access to data objects, many scripting parts become obsolete
    2. Conditional and repetitive control structures like when, unless,
    while, for, choose, switch ..
    3. Exception handling
    4. Additional types, tasks and macros
    5. A comprehensive documentation

    Flaka appetizer:

    <project xmlns:fl="antlib:it.haefelinger.flaka" name="World">
    <!-- make ant core tasks aware of EL references -->
    <fl:install-property-handler />

    <fl:logo width="20">
    Hello #{ project.name ? project.name : ''}!
    </fl:logo>
    <fl:for var="f" in=" file(project).list ">
    <fl:when test=" f.isfile ">
    <!-- report basename and modification time -->
    <echo>
    file: #{f.name} last modified: #{ format('%tD',f.mtime) }
    </echo>
    </fl:when>
    </fl:for>
    </project>

    [fl:logo] ::::::::::::::::::::
    [fl:logo] : Hello World! :

    When you write some new program, what fascinates you is:

    1. latest version number.

    2. most recent bugs fixed and features added.

    3. something terribly clever in one of the algorithms it uses.


    When you have never heard of a program, what fascinates you is:

    1. who is this program intended for? Who might make use of it? Do I
    need a PhD in something, or is this for the novice?

    2. what problem does it solve?

    3. if it is replacement for something, e.g. ANT, what deficiency does
    this new program address?

    4. Where can I read more, especially see some sample code to use it?

    5. Where can I download it to experiment?

    One of the great annoyances in programming derives from the irregularity
    of English spelling especially when you have international teams.
    I want to find a method or variable, but I don't know precisely
    how its is spelled or worded. English is only approximately phonetic.
    Letters are randomly doubled. The dictionary often lists variant spellings.
    British, Canadian and American spellings differ.I would like to see an
    experiment where variable names were spelled in a simplified English, where
    there were no double letters.I also think you could add a number of rules
    about composing variable names so that a variable name for something would
    be highly predictable. You would also need automated enforcement of the
    rules as well as possible.

    it's surely for the experienced ant user

    all your other questions are already answered in the announcement
    posting.
