Ant 1.8.1 has been prepared and is scheduled to be released. Using this issue to prepare and test the NetBeans integration, I hope for 6.9.

Not for 6.9.

Transplanted as release691 #77fd6c48b458
rbalada: careful transplanting the specification version increments; looks like these merged without conflict, so I guess you have not yet bumped up minor versions on the branch.
The fix for bug #186629 must be transplanted as well or there will be a serious regression in 6.9.1! When backporting anything, please take care to look at its "Depends on" list for cleanup fixes.
Changeset for this issue has been integrated into release691 repository. Unfortunately the bugfix for issue 186629 is still unverified, so this issue is at risk of being backed out in order to avoid regression described in issue 186629.
