The Apache Maven team is proud to announce Apache Maven version 3.6.2. Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based on the concept of a project object model (POM), Maven can manage a project’s build, reporting, and documentation from a central place.
Highlights: - This release focuses mostly performance improvements, better memory footprint, and less CPU usage. - We are continuing to convert Maven Core to use JSR 330 annotations instead of Plexus (still not finished, see MNG-5577). - New support for ‘release’ qualifier (see MNG-6655). - The toolchain.xml file supports environment variables (see MNG-6665).
