Release Notes – Maven 4.0.0-alpha-12

The Apache Maven team would like to announce the release of Maven 4.0.0-alpha-12.

This is alpha release, not suitable for production.

Maven 4.0.0-alpha-12 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.
