Subject NAR Maven Plugin 3.0.0 released
Date Fri, 06 Dec 2013 23:24:20 GMT
Hi all!

On behalf of the developers working hard on the NAR plugin for Maven, it is
my pleasure to announce that it is available on Maven Central now:|com.github.maven-nar|nar-maven-plugin|3.0.0|maven-plugin

To use it, add this to your pom.xml:


Since October 17th, 2010, the date of the last commit of Mark
Donszelmann (the original author of the NAR plugin for Maven who is
unfortunately unable to maintain it any longer), a lot of things happened.

First of all, the plugin found a new home on GitHub:

with a team of developers and a mailing list/forum at

a Git repository at

a bug tracker at

and Frequently Asked Questions at

Since the Git history does a fine job at listing the fine-grained
changes, here is a coarse-grained list of changes:

* unified Richard Kerr's, Greg Domjan's and SciJava's forks of
the maven-nar-plugin (as it was formerly known)
* renamed the plugin to conform with Maven's requirements
* moved to a new groupId to reflect that we're on GitHub now
* switch to deploy to OSS Sonatype (mirrored on Maven Central)
* continuous integration testing thanks to BuildHive
* merged the cpptasks-parallel code directly into nar-maven-plugin
* support for MacOSX 10.9
* support for Microsoft Visual C++ resource and message compilers
* support for Java 7's javah
* support developing the Java part of projects using the NAR plugin in
* robust version detection of Microsoft's linkers
* boat loads of bug fixes (as in: megatons of bug fixes)

This would not have been possible without the tremendous support
and contributions of the community. Thank you all!

Johannes Schindelin, Curtis Rueden and NAR development team
