Yes. Note that there is a bug [1] with regards to pom files and 
encoding, when using the release plugin. It has been solved and the fix 
will be included in the next release (2.0-beta-8). Currently the release 
plugin writes all poms as UTF-8.

To avoid this in the future, you can follow the instructions [2] under 
the heading "Please prepare the POM(s) for the release".
