+# Release Notes &#x2013; Maven 3.5.0
+The Apache Maven team would like to announce the release of Maven 3.5.0.
+Maven 3.5.0 is [available for download][0].
+Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based on the concept of a
project object model (POM), Maven can manage a project's build, reporting and documentation
from a central place.
+The core release is independent of the plugins available. Further releases of plugins will
be made separately. See the [PluginList][1] for more information.
+We hope you enjoy using Maven! If you have any questions, please consult:
+- the web site: [][2]
+- the maven-user mailing list: [][3]
+- the reference documentation: [][4]
+## Why not Maven 3.4.0?
+After Maven 3.3.9 was released, the Eclipse Aether project was retired and the code base
was migrated to the Apache Maven project.
+The original goal for the 3.4.0 release was to replace Aether with the exact same code after
migration to the Apache Maven project and then proceed with bug fixes to the resolver code
as well as other areas of Maven.
+The migration of the code between the two foundations took longer than expected and as a
result there were other changes committed to Maven core that were outside the scope of intent
for 3.4.0.
+In order to refocus on the original intent for 3.4.0, the decision was taken to revert the
Maven core history to the point of the 3.3.9 release and merge in the desired changes one
at a time.
+Because there had been a lot of communication about different features being delivered and
bugs fixed in Maven 3.4.0 and the new history may not contain them in the first release, the
decision was taken to forever burn the 3.4.x release line.
+More detail on this decision can be read in the [mailing list archive][5].

+## Overview about the changes
+- The most obvious change you may encounter is that the console output has colors now [MNG-3507][],
+- The new `` special property adds support in every calculated URLs (project,
SCM, site) for module directory name that does not match artifactId [MNG-5878][]
+- The `JAVA_HOME` discovery has been reduced to simply check if `JAVA_HOME` is set or not
then trying to discover via `which java`, nothing more [MNG-6003][].
+- The build bootstrapping support via Apache Ant has been removed. You can now only bootstrap
Maven build with a previous version of Maven, but not with Ant any more [MNG-5904][].
+- Based on problems in using `M2_HOME` related to different Maven versions installed and
to simplify things, the usage of `M2_HOME` has been removed and is not supported any more
[MNG-5823][], [MNG-5836][], [MNG-5607][].
+- Important change for windows users: The usage of `%HOME%` has been replaced with `%USERPROFILE%`
+- Several issues have been reported and fixed related to the `mvn` script either for Unix/Linux/Cygwin/Solaris
or for Windows [MNG-5815][], [MNG-5852][], [MNG-5963][], [MNG-6022][].
+- In Maven 3.3.9, we have removed bindings for maven-ejb3-plugin because it does not exist.
We follow-up and removed the artifact handler for `ejb3` and the `par` lifecycles [MNG-6014][],
+- In previous Maven versions, there had been a larger problem related to memory usage in
case of very large reactors (200-300 modules or more) which caused failures with out of memory
exceptions or the need to increase the memory settings. This problem has been fixed with [MNG-6030][].
+- If you have defined a property within the `.mvn/maven.config` file, it was not possible
to overwrite the property via command line. This has been fixed with [MNG-6078][].
+- If you have are using `<prerequisites>..</prerequisites>` for a non maven-plugin
project, you will get a WARNING which looks like this:
+        [INFO] Scanning for projects...
+        [WARNING] The project org.apache.maven:maven:pom:3.5.0 uses prerequisites which is
only intended for maven-plugin projects but not for non maven-plugin projects. For such purposes
you should use the maven-enforcer-plugin. See
+    This will tell you to use [maven-enforcer-plugin][] to check the version of Maven you
are expecting to build your project with, instead of using `prerequisites` [MNG-5297][], [MNG-6092][].
+- Replaced Eclipse Aether with [Maven Resolver][maven-resolver] [MNG-6110][], [MNG-6140][].
+- Using of CI friendly versions via `${revision}`, `${sha1}` and/or `${changelist}` has been
fixed [MNG-6057][], [MNG-6090][] and [MNG-5895][]. It is very important to know if you are
using the previously named properties for a version in your pom you have to use [flatten-maven-plugin]
if you like to do an `mvn install` or `mvn deploy` more details can be found at [Maven CI
Friendly Versions](/maven-ci-friendly.html).
+## Improvements
+The full list of changes as well as detailed descriptions of same can be found in our [issue
