The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache
Maven Changes Plugin, version 2.12.1
This plugin is used to inform your users of the changes that have occurred
between different releases of your project. The plugin can extract these
changes, either from a changes.xml file or from an issue management system
(Jira, Trac and GitHub supported), and presents them as a report.
You also have the option of creating a release announcement and even
sending it via email to your users.
