Subject [ANN] Maven 1.1 released
Date Mon, 25 Jun 2007 09:48:47 GMT
Dear Community,

The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of Maven 1.1!

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.

We recommend that all users of maven 1.x upgrade to this release, and,
particularly those using pre-1.1 betas or release candidates.

Please note: Maven 2.0.7 [1] is the latest stable release of Maven and
is recommended for all new projects, but it is not compatible with
Maven 1.x. No further development is planned for the Maven-1.0 branch,
and Maven-1.1 is in maintenance mode, i.e. development is restricted
to support and bug fixes.

Maven 1.1 is meant to improve the performance and stability for those
using Maven 1.0 for their builds.
Compared to Maven 1.0.2, this release features several enhancements:

    * Integration of Maven 2 technologies such as Maven Wagon, Maven
SCM and the new model code
    * Ant 1.6.5 support
    * Upgrade dependencies, in particular Jelly, Dom4j, Jaxen,
Commons-Jexl, and many others.
    * Upgraded versions [2] of almost all the bundled plugins,
    * Improved error handling and reporting.
    * Improved POM layout
    * Significant improvements in memory usage and general performance.
    * Documentation updates.

For a full list of changes, please see JIRA [3].

With just a few exceptions [4], Maven 1.1 is backwards compatible with
Maven 1.0.

Download Maven 1.1 [5] and read the Installation Instructions [6].

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

    * the FAQ [7]
    * the maven-user mailing list [8]
