Release Notes – Maven 3.8.2

The Apache Maven team would like to announce the release of Maven 3.8.2.

Maven 3.8.2 is available for download.

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.

The core release is independent of plugin releases. Further releases of plugins will be made separately. See the PluginList for more information.

The full list of changes can be found in our issue management system.

Known Issues

  • If any of your plugin mojos spawns new threads there might be a change in class loading as a result of the fix for MNG-6843. See discussion with a possible fix for your plugin mojo as well as a potential general fix in MNG-7212.
  • If any or your projects relies on a Maven Core artifacts and your build is perfomed with Maven 3.8.1 or later a transitive dependency parent of Sisu Plexus/CPI API 1.0 will inject a remote repository over HTTP which will be blocked by default and (might) lead to build failures. See discussion and MNG-7214 for details.
  • MNG-7170 has caused a regression where non-reactor projects have basedir set and plugins as well as other components make false assumptions. See discussion and MNG-7215 for details.
  • MNG-6886 has caused a regression where plexus-cipher with the org.sonatype.plexus group id was globally excluded, but not all affected modules were updated to depend on this dependency directly with the org.codehaus.plexus group id. See discussion for details.
