Updating the release information of a project

Updating the release information means that a forced update of the project's metadata takes place which sets the artifact as the release version. It is most useful when installing a plugin built from source so it can be used by other projects without explicitly asking for the latest SNAPSHOT version.

This can be activated by setting the updateReleaseInfo parameter to true when installing.

  mvn install -DupdateReleaseInfo=true
