The core release is independent of plugin releases. Further releases of plugins will be made separately.

- the reference documentation: https://maven.apache.org/ref/3.6.3/


Overview about the major changes

- This is a regression release to fix some critical issues shipped with 3.6.2.
- Some license issues on binary distribution have been fixed.
- This Maven distribution is now Reproducible: if you build from source archive, with JDK 8, on Windows, with 'mvn -DbuildNumber=cecedd343002696d0abb50b32b541b8a6ba2883f package' you’ll get bit-by-bit identical output that you can check with sha512 fingerprints.
If you’re building on any Unix system, you’ll need to add “-Dline.separator=$'\r\n'”. See the https://maven.apache.org/guides/mini/guide-reproducible-builds.html for more details.

Enjoy!
