Subject [ANN] Maven 2.1.0-M1 Released
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2008 03:33:54 GMT
The Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Maven 2.1.0-M1.

This release signals the beginning of a new direction in the development 
of Maven. Recently, Maven's development efforts were split into three 
major goals. First, the Maven 2.0.x code line will be minimally 
maintained for regression fixes; the 2.0.x series should be entering 
end-of-life mode soon now that 2.1.0-M1 is out.

Next, the 2.x series aims to accomplish a relatively conservative series 
of new features, improved implementations, and other changes that bring 
with them too much risk to be appropriate for a revision release on the 
2.0.x version series. Each of these releases - 2.1, 2.2, and so on - 
will be preceded by a formal release plan.

Finally, the 3.x series is the home of Maven's more aggressive 
improvements, including wholesale reimplementation of subsystems and the 
introduction of major new features.

This means that all discussions in the past that referred to Maven 2.1 
now apply mainly to Maven 3.x, currently under development. We will 
backport some of the smaller features to the 2.x version series, 
provided we can contain the risk of these features and provide a smooth 
transition from one version to the next for the user.
