Release Notes - Maven 2.x Release Plugin - Version 2.0

** Bug
    * [MRELEASE-3] - release:prepare should not require multimodule
artifacts to be in the local repository
    * [MRELEASE-278] - release:clean doesn't clean up after release:branch

    * [MRELEASE-387] - command line versions don't seem to work on
    * [MRELEASE-389] - Properties releaseVersion and developmentVersion

scm 1.3)
    * [MRELEASE-452] - allowTimestampedSnapshots=true still fails with

the release:perform goal to fail

release:branch goal
    * [MRELEASE-422] - Output the resulting tag name or branch name
during dryRun
    * [MRELEASE-423] - Wrong goal specified to generate a release pom
    * [MRELEASE-451] - CLONE -scm:tag with scmCommentPrefix
    * [MRELEASE-461] - Add a mojo parameter for using the new remote
tagging for svn scm provider (to prevent issue with svn > 1.5.0) in
