[ANN] Apache Maven 3.0-beta-3 Released

The Maven team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Maven

Maven is a project comprehension and build tool, designed to simplify
the process of maintaining a healthy development lifecycle for your
project. You can read more here:


Downloads of source and binary distributions are listed in our download


A major goal of Maven 3.0 is to be compatible, to the extent possible,
with existing plugins and projects designed for Maven 2.x. Users
interested in testing this beta release should have a glance at the
compatibility notes for known differences between Maven 3.0 and Maven 2.x:


This new beta version features a reworked repository system (Aether) and
a new IoC container (based on Guice). We are already aware of a few
regressions since 3.0-beta-2 due to these new components so we kindly
ask users of the new beta to check our issue tracker for duplicate
issues before filling new ones. The list of issues filled against the
new 3.0-beta-3 can be seen via


Nevertheless, we highly appreciate feedback from our users on this new
release to help us track down any other potential issues.

If you encounter unexpected problems while using Maven 3.0-beta-3,
please feel free to contact us via the Maven developer list:
