Yes. There is a windows specific bug in that release, so an updated 
plugin will be made available for those publishing a site from a windows 

This requires a manual install of a new plugin:
maven plugin:download -DgroupId=maven 
-DartifactId=maven-changelog-plugin -Dversion=1.X.X
(this will fix all 3)

confusing aspect - the "release" was an experiment left around because 
it provides some support code to other plugins.

The SCM plugin I mentioned has some release goals. These are all really 
just convenience goals - certainly not something you need to use day-to-day.

The future goal is to redevelop these with complete requirements. 
Deployment itself is unaffected.

AFAIK, just Jelly and Jexl. Hopefully by the time they come to a new 
release, the new plugin will be ready for download. Its not a huge 
amount of additional work

These are all issues, but not blocking IMO.
