Subject [ANN] Maven Surefire Plugin 2.16 Released
Date Tue, 20 Aug 2013 08:05:29 GMT
The Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Maven
Surefire Plugin, version 2.16

This release addresses some serious problems with character encodings in
the test report XML files and adds a new Parallel Computer implementation
to the JUnit 4.7+ provider, offering a bunch of new options and features
around in-process parallel execution (submitted by Tibor17, thanks again!).

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