Subject Apache Maven 2.0 Alpha 2 Released
Date Fri, 13 May 2005 14:33:46 GMT
  The Apache Maven team are proud to announce the second alpha release
of Maven 2.0.

  Download it from: http://maven.apache.org/maven2/download.html

  Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based
on the concept of a project object model
  (POM), Maven can manage a project's build, reporting and documentation
from a central piece of information.

  This release includes 76 bug fixes and enhancements
since the
  first release on 8 April.

  Maven 2.0 is a rewrite of the popular Maven application to achieve a
number of goals, and to provide a stable
  basis to take it into the future.  While it can be considered quite
stable, and future versions are now expected to
  retain a high amount of backwards compatibility, this is still a
technology preview, and not yet complete or
  considered ready for a production environment.

  The main new features in this release are:

    * Basic site generation
    * Improved error handling
    * Automatic plugin updates
    * Published Mojo and Plugin API
    * Inclusion of Ant tasks for Maven 2.0

  This release is expected to be much more architecturally stable,
making early adoption
  a possiblity. At this point, there are still only the core plugins

  We hope you enjoy using Maven! If you have any questions, please consult:
