Subject Apache Maven 2.0 Alpha 3 Released
Date Fri, 24 Jun 2005 04:27:20 GMT
The Apache Maven team are proud to announce the third 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 83 bug fixes and enhancements since the previous release
on 13 May.

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:

    * Improved dependency management
    * Build profiles for environment specific settings and dependencies
    * Finalised build lifecycle
    * Proper handling of derived dependency type such as sources, javadocs and
ejb clients
    * Beanshell plugin support
    * Improved reporting support, including internationalisation.
    * Improvements to the Ant tasks
    * Better plugin management, with the ability to select specific versions for use
    * Various plugin improvements

This release is very near to being feature complete, and the next release will
be a feature complete beta-1.

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