Subject Re: Any ETA for maven-javadoc-plugin 3.0.0?
Date Sun, 12 Nov 2017 14:15:49 GMT
MJAVADOC-475 is about replacing a parameter, which makes it as critical as  
We just consider 3.0.0 to be THE version to be able to do a cleanup, hence  
MJAVADOC-475 must be fixed as well.

The good news is: MJAVADOC-457 and MJAVADOC-475 are finished. I don't see  
any deprecated parameters anymore.

MJAVADOC-499 is a too dangerous proposal for me. So I don't mind moving  
that issue forward, it is not critical for 3.0.0, there is a workaround  
(or preferred solution depending on who you ask) for this issue.

Which means I can prepare the release this week.
Just need to ensure all CI servers still accept the changes.
