Subject [PLEASE TEST] Maven 2.2.0-RC1
Date Fri, 01 May 2009 22:11:52 GMT
Hi everyone,

It's that time again. For the 2.2.0 release of Maven, we're trying to 
keep the number of issues fairly limited to regressions, issues with 
quite a few votes that are low-hanging fruit, and some sort of 
"strategic" issues. We're moving Maven to JDK 1.5 with this release, 
though the entire API has not yet been generified.

We've resolved 15 issues (one is still open, waiting for me to finalize 
the associated site docs). The full listing is at the bottom of this 
message, and the link to the release notes is:

You can find the RC1 staging artifacts here:

...and the binary/source distribution archives here:

Please note that Maven 2.2.0 will require JDK 1.5 to run, so take this 
into consideration when testing.

If you come across any problems, please file an issue in:

and set Affects-Version == 2.2.0.
