Maven 2.0 Alpha 3 Released

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

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:
