Subject Maven 1.1 Beta 1 Released
Date Thu, 16 Jun 2005 17:25:12 GMT
The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of Maven 1.1-beta-1


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.

This release focuses on the following objectives:

    * Integration of Maven 2 technologies such as Maven Wagon, Maven SCM 
and the new model code
    * Ant 1.6.5 support
    * Upgrade to later releases of dependencies, in particular Jelly
    * Significant improvements in memory usage
    * Improved POM layout
    * Bugfixes

With just a few exceptions [1], Maven 1.1 is backwards compatible with 
Maven 1.0.

For a full list of changes, please see JIRA [2].

*IMPORTANT: * You must ensure that Maven 1.1 is first in your path if 
you want to have it installed side-by-side with Maven 1.0.2

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

    * the FAQ: http://maven.apache.org/faq.html
    * the maven-user mailing list: http://maven.apache.org/mail-lists.html
