In case you haven't noticed, Apache have released their much-anticipated update to the outstanding project management and build tool, Maven.

Touting various massive changes, Maven 3 boasts some of the following (individually picked from the release notes!):

  • Parallel builds - running builds on multiple threads on multiple cores. Exciting stuff, especially when you can expect speed improvements upwards of 20%!
  • Remove support for profiles.xml
  • Improved POM validation
  • Custom lifecycles
  • Dependency graph with image map to navigate modules easily

Amongst these impressive new features, there have been 22 bug fixes since the beta release, as well as a few additional wish-list items and nice-to-haves. You can see the full feature list for the 3.0.x release here.
