[ANN] Maven Surefire Plugin 2.9 Released

Kristian Rosenvold-5
The Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Maven

maven-failsafe-plugin, which executes the integration tests of an

Surefire can now run JUnit 3 tests with a security manager present, see

**** Note to JUnit4 users upgrading:
Due to SUREFIRE-482 users upgrading to surefire 2.9 from <2.7
may see some (incorrectly defined) tests not being run any more.
This should be verified by running mvn -Dsurefire.junit4.upgradecheck=true
install at least once (this can be run multiple times until you
have fixed all issues)


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