Subject [ANN] Maven Changes Plugin 2.4 Released
Date Sat, 29 Jan 2011 22:10:21 GMT
The Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Maven Changes
Plugin, version 2.4

This plugin is used to inform your users of the changes that have
occured between different releases of your project. The plugin can
extract these changes, either from a changes.xml file or from the JIRA
issue management system, and present them as a report. You also have the
option of creating a release announcement and even sending this via
email to your users.

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