Subject [ANN] Apache Maven Plugin Tools (including Maven Plugin Plugin) 3.3 Released
Date Thu, 08 May 2014 13:30:29 GMT
The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache Maven 
Plugin Tools, version 3.3

The Maven Plugin Tools contains the necessary tools to be able to produce 
Maven Plugins in scripting languages and to generate rebarbative content like 
descriptor, help and documentation.

The Maven Plugin Plugin is used to create a Maven plugin descriptor for any 
Mojo's found in the source tree, to include in the JAR. It is also used to 
generate report files for the Mojos as well as for updating the plugin 
registry, the artifact metadata and generating a generic help goal.

You should specify the version in your project's plugin configuration:
