Subject [ANN] Apache Maven Assembly Plugin 2.5 Released
Date Mon, 27 Oct 2014 04:50:58 GMT
The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the
long-awaited Apache Maven Assembly Plugin, version 2.5.

The Assembly Plugin for Maven is primarily intended to allow users to aggregate
the project output along with its dependencies, modules, site documentation,
and other files into a single distributable archive.

Notable in this release is improved file attribute support and full
symlink support for java7+ users. Users of filtering/line ending
selection should also notice a nice performance improvement.  A large
number of bugs have also been fixed.

You should specify the version in your project's plugin configuration:
