The Maven team is pleased to announce the release of Maven 2.0 alpha-2
. This release is close to being architecturally stable, making early adoption a possiblity. We have closed out 76 issues in 5 weeks and are on track for our final release in August.
Maven 2.0 is a rewrite of the popular Maven application to achieve a number of goals, and to provide a stable basis to take it into the future. While it can be considered quite stable, and future versions are now expected to retain a high amount of backwards compatibility, this is still a technology preview, and not yet complete or considered
ready for a production environment.
The main new features in this release are:
* Basic site generation
* Improved error handling
* Automatic plugin updates
* Published Mojo and Plugin API
* Inclusion of Ant tasks for Maven 2
We hope you enjoy using Maven! If you have any questions, please consult:
