Let me update and give it a try.

I always use Ant, so I can make sure that works. I think maven support was added by contributions but I don't remember.

All the work is in 2.2 now, 2.1 has shipped. 2.2 by the way has just passed feature freeze, so we're in bug fix mode and then we'll be switching to 3.0 within the next month! 2.2 was a short release window.
