Apache Maven Assembly Plugin Version 2.5.4 Released

The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache Maven Assembly Plugin, version 2.5.4.

The Assembly Plugin for Maven is primarily intended to allow users to aggregate the project output along with its dependencies, modules, site documentation, and other files into a single distributable archive.

This release is mostly a bugfix release, but due to MASSEMBLY-764 we also gained multithreaded ZIP compression, which should especially benefit users with large zip files.

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