Subject [ANN] Apache Maven 3.0-alpha-5 Released
Date Fri, 27 Nov 2009 10:29:48 GMT
The Maven team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Maven 

Maven is a project comprehension and build tool, designed to simplify
the process of maintaining a healthy development lifecycle for your
project. You can read more here:

Downloads of source and binary distributions are already available on 
the central Maven repository and various Apache download mirrors and 
will be listed soon in our download section once the updated site gets 
synced to the live server:

A major goal of Maven 3.0 is to be compatible with existing plugins and 
projects designed for Maven 2.x. Users interested in testing this alpha 
release should have a glance at the compatibility notes for known 
differences between Maven 3.0 and Maven 2.x:
