Install GATK 1.0

We need to re-analyze some data produced some years ago and I need to install the first GATK version on my local machine. From the following link https://github.com/broadgsa/gatk/releases?after=1.5 I downloaded the tar.gz file but when uncompressing it I obtain a folder containing only two subolders: lib and src. No information is there regarding how to install this version. Any hint? Thanks in advance

    I will have to check with the team and get back to you.

    Is there any way you can use the latest version or something newer than 1.0?

    That version was built using Apache Ant, so you would do ant dist if I remember correctly.

    That being said I would strongly recommend scrapping any results obtained at the time and redoing your analysis with the newer version. Results will be much better.
