Subject Fwd: [ANN] Maven 2.0 Release Now Available
Date Wed, 19 Oct 2005 23:02:38 GMT
What do people think about migrating to Maven 2.0?
There are several features that I think we'll need and the
repository download process is less insane.

> Maven is a build system that provides software project management and
> dependancy comprehension. Based on the concept of a project object 
> model
> (POM), Maven manages a project's build, reporting and documentation

>
> Maven 2.0 is a rewrite of the popular Maven application, designed to
> both address previous functional requirements and provide a stable
> platform for extending and enhancing its build management framework.
>
> This release is significantly faster and smaller than Maven 1.0 and
> includes the following usability and performance improvements:
>
> * Enhanced Dependency Management - includes dependency closures
>   (transitive dependencies), version ranges, automatic build
>   numbering, and automatic updating on a configurable interval
>
> * Defined Build Lifecycle - developers can build any type of project
>   using standard commands such as compile, test and install
>
> * Unified Project Definition - manages all required build information 
> in
>   a single POM now, including project information, dependencies and
>   plugin configuration
>
> * Extended Plugin Architecture - supports Java and scripting languages
>   such as Beanshell for plugin development
>
> * Better Repository Support - includes separated snapshot repositories,
>   a new more managable layout and per-project definitions of new
>   repositories
>
> * Expanded Reactor Operation - offers built-in support for multiple
>   projects (without the need to perform a full install cycle to compile
>   all projects) and support for project aggregation
>
> * New Site Management Tools - supports multiple input and output
>   formats, with input formats including wiki-like APT format and
>   docbook, while continuing to support traditional Maven XDoc and FAQ
>   format.
>
> * New Reporting API - offers a standardised method for producing 
> project
>   information and reports
>
> * And much more...

> The Maven 2.0 release is considered stable and includes a Maven 1.0
> complete feature set, with additional functionality. The most popular
> Maven 1.0 plugins have been converted for Maven 2.0, and many more are
> available in beta.
> See http://docs.codehaus.org/pages/MAVEN/Maven+Plugin+Matrix for more
> information on particular plugins.
>
> Maven's advanced dependency management features rely on project
> metadata. If you are interested in improving support for the users of
> your project, see http://maven.apache.org/maven2/project-faq.html
>
> The Maven team would like to express thanks to the user and developer
> community for their beta testing, feedback and contributions that 
> helped
> make the release possible!
