Woohoo! This is a great achievement. Well done everyone!

Now be ready for the mailing list flood that will arrive... ;-)

This is now that the faqbot would be useful. A pity it's not ready yet. But
fortunately we've got Jason's doc to help :-)

> 
> We are pleased to announce that Maven 2.0 has been released, and is
> available for download from http://maven.apache.org/maven2/download.html
> 
> Maven is a build system that provides software project management and
> dependancy comprehension. Based on the concept of a project object model
> (POM), Maven manages a project's build, reporting and documentation from
> a central place.
> 
> Maven 2.0 is a rewrite of the popular Maven application, designed to
> both address previous functional requirements and provide a stable
> platform for extending and enhancing its build management framework.
> 
> This release is significantly faster and smaller than Maven 1.0 and
> includes the following usability and performance improvements:
> 
> * Enhanced Dependency Management - includes dependency closures
>    (transitive dependencies), version ranges, automatic build
>    numbering, and automatic updating on a configurable interval
> 
> * Defined Build Lifecycle - developers can build any type of project
>    using standard commands such as compile, test and install
> 
> * Unified Project Definition - manages all required build information in
>    a single POM now, including project information, dependencies and
>    plugin configuration
> 
> * Extended Plugin Architecture - supports Java and scripting languages
>    such as Beanshell for plugin development
> 
> * Better Repository Support - includes separated snapshot repositories,
>    a new more managable layout and per-project definitions of new
>    repositories
> 
> * Expanded Reactor Operation - offers built-in support for multiple
>    projects (without the need to perform a full install cycle to compile
>    all projects) and support for project aggregation
> 
> * New Site Management Tools - supports multiple input and output
>    formats, with input formats including wiki-like APT format and
>    docbook, while continuing to support traditional Maven XDoc and FAQ
>    format.
> 
> * New Reporting API - offers a standardised method for producing project
>    information and reports
> 
> * And much more...
> 
> The Maven 2.0 release is considered stable and includes a Maven 1.0
> complete feature set, with additional functionality. The most popular
> Maven 1.0 plugins have been converted for Maven 2.0, and many more are
> available in beta.
> See http://docs.codehaus.org/pages/MAVEN/Maven+Plugin+Matrix for more
> information on particular plugins.
> 
> Maven's advanced dependency management features rely on project
> metadata. If you are interested in improving support for the users of
> your project, see http://maven.apache.org/maven2/project-faq.html
> 
> The Maven team would like to express thanks to the user and developer
> community for their beta testing, feedback and contributions that helped
> make the release possible!
