[ANN] Maven 1.0 Released

The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of Maven 1.0.

(please be patient as the release may not have propogated to all mirrors yet)

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.

New Features

* Bundle the Jelly XML tag library for build and for plugin’s convenience
* Add different types of download progress meters.

Fixed bugs
