Since we're having 2 discussions in parallel for choices about future 
compatibility between Java + Maven + plugins versions, I tried to make a 
little drawing to illustrate the topic:

(transparency represents current level of support, or more precisely is the 
inverse of support)

In this drawing, we have the little 2.1 and 3.1 versions: I'd prefer avoiding 
a little 3.3
Or we tell people that even minor versions are the most stable versions to 

While at it, I'll do a little bit of advertising :)
this drawing not only happens because of our discussion, but it's also because 
I'm preparing a talk with Arnaud Héritier for Devoxx France, in April in 
Paris, about Java versions and Maven tooling to build for multiple Java 
versions: animal sniffer, toolchains, ...,_Apache_Maven_vous_garde_sur_les_rails

We'll do it in french, sorry for non-french speaking people :)
If some Maven dev wants to make a talk about this, don't hesitate to contact 
Arnaud and I: we can share the slides (while creating them) and help 
translating. It would be interesting to have multiple Maven devs doing the 
same talk in multiple languages and countries
