The Apache Maven team is proud to announce Apache Maven version
Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based on the
concept of a project object model (POM), Maven can manage a project’s
build, reporting, and documentation from a central place.
- This release focuses mostly performance improvements, better memory
footprint, and less CPU usage.
- We are continuing to convert Maven Core to use JSR 330 annotations
instead of Plexus (still not finished, see MNG-5577).
- New support for ‘release’ qualifier (see MNG-6655).
- The toolchain.xml file supports environment variables (see MNG-6665).
