Apache Maven Release Plugin Version 2.5.2 Released

| Comments

The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache Maven Release Plugin, version 2.5.2.

This plugin is used to release a project with Maven, saving a lot of repetitive, manual work. Releasing a project is made in two steps: prepare and perform.

You should specify the version in your project’s plugin configuration:

1
2
3
4
5
<plugin>
  <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
  <artifactId>maven-release-plugin</artifactId>
  <version>2.5.2</version>
</plugin>

Release Notes – Maven Release Plugin – Version 2.5.2

  • MRELEASE-555 – update versions does not update intermodule dependencies
  • MRELEASE-611 – The update-versions goal fails when project is not at a SNAPSHOT version
