Apache Maven Install Plugin Version 3.0.0-M1 Released

The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache Maven Install Plugin, version 3.0.0-M1.

The Install Plugin is used during the install phase to add artifact(s) to the local repository. The Install Plugin uses the information in the POM (groupId, artifactId, version) to determine the proper location for the artifact within the local repository.

Important Note since 3.0.0-M1:

  • Maven 3.X only
  • Minimum JDK 7+
  • The maven-install-plugin does not generate any kind of checksum anymore.

Usage Note:

  • Use the maven-install-plugin 3.0.0-M1 only in combination with the maven-deploy-plugin 3.0.0-M1.

You can download the appropriate sources etc. from the download page.
