Release Notes – Maven 3.8.4

The Apache Maven team would like to announce the release of Maven 3.8.4.

Maven 3.8.4 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.

  • Regression fixes from Maven 3.8.3

Known Issues

  • The ThreadLocal approach that was introduced in 3.8.2 to fix MNG-6843 had to be reverted as it caused too many side-effects. MNG-7335 was created to track the work needed to add a more sustainable fix to Maven 3.8.5 or 3.9.0.
