New in Continuum 1.2

* Using Spring
Continuum now uses the Spring Framework as it's underlying container
instead of Plexus. This results in a boost in performance and
stability for the web application in particular.

*Repository Purge
It's now possible to add purges which will cleanup :
  - m2 repositories (now it's possible to configure a local m2
repository per project group)
  - build output directory

* Maven plugin groupId and artifactId change Now the maven plugin has
the new groupId:artifactId org.apache.continuum:continuum-maven-plugin

* New SCMs support
Now continuum have two new scm providers : git and accurev.
