The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache Maven Release Plugin, version 2.5, together with the maven-release-manager.
This plugin automates release management.
You should specify the version in your project’s plugin configuration:
1 2 3 4 5
- MRELEASE-812 – “prepare” does not commit before tagging and therefore deploys snapshot instead of release
- MRELEASE-862 – Upgrade to Apache Maven SCM 1.9
Note in particular that MRELEASE-862 fixes the release plugin to work with git version 1.8 and newer.
