Maven 1.1-RC1 Released

The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of Maven 1.1-RC1!

Download Maven 1.1-RC1 and read the Installation Instructions.

Maven is a project management and project comprehension tool. Maven is based on the concept of a project object model: builds, documentation creation, site publication, and distribution publication are all controlled from the project object model. Maven also provides tools to create source metrics, change logs based directly on source repository, and source cross-references.

Compared to Maven 1.1-beta-3, this release focuses on the following objectives:

  • Upgrade dependencies, eg wagon, maven-model, plexus-utils, commons-jexl,
  • Upgrade a number of plugins, see MAVEN-1769 for a complete list,
  • Improved error handling and reporting,
  • Improved handling of groupId/artifactId.

For a full list of changes, please see JIRA.

With just a few exceptions, Maven 1.1-RC1 is backwards compatible with Maven 1.0.

Please note: Maven 2.0.6 is the latest stable release of Maven and is recommended for all new projects, but it is not compatible with Maven 1.x. Maven 1.1 is meant to improve the performance and stability for those using Maven 1.0 for their builds.

We hope you enjoy using Maven! If you have any questions, please consult:
