Subject Maven 1.0-rc4 Released
Date Mon, 28 Jun 2004 14:33:00 GMT
The maven team is pleased to announce the Maven 1.0-rc4 release! 


Maven is a project management and project comprehension tool. Maven is based 
on the concept of a project object model: builds, documentation creation, site 
publication, and distribution publication are all controlled from the project 
object model. Maven also provides tools to create source metrics, change logs 
based directly on source repository, and source cross-references.

Maven 1.0 RC4 is the final release candidate for Maven 1.0 (and this time we 
mean it!)

Changes in this version include:

  New Features:

o Support NTLM authentication on a remote repository. Issue: MAVEN-1332. 
  Thanks to george wang. 

  Fixed bugs:

o Sort all installed plugins. Issue: MAVEN-1320. Thanks to Miguel Griffa. 
o Fix HTTP BASIC authentication for remote repos. Issue: MAVEN-1273. Thanks 
  to Andreas Peschka. 
o Repository element was broken for non-cvs connections Issue: MAVEN-1298. 


o Set maven.plugin.user.dir to ${maven.home.local}/plugins by default, move 
  maven.plugin.unpacked.dir to ${maven.home.local}/cache. 
o Read local plugin jars from maven.plugin.user.dir instead of 
o Use commons-httpclient for http downloads from the repository.  

  Plugin changes:

o The deploy plugin has been merged into the artifact plugin. The artifact plugin
  is used for all artifact deployments now, and supports the old-style deployment
o Plenty of bugfix releases of other plugins - refer to the individial plugin
  websites or release announcements.
o Addition of the new RAR plugin.
