Jayasoft has released Ivy 1.1, a free java based dependency manager, with powerful features such as transitive dependencies, ant integration, maven repository compatibility, continuous integration, html reports and more.

This release includes many bug fixes, better download management, better information and debug messages, improved documentation and a brand new web site.

And you, how do you manage your dependencies ? Do you use a dedicated tool, or the good old lib directory ? Do you think tools like Ivy with transitive dependencies support can be useful ?
