"The open source Apache Maven project has been helping software
developers for over six years with their project build and
reporting management needs. For most of that time, the project has
been offering incremental updates to the Apache Maven 2.x product
line, but in the next few months, Maven 3 is set to emerge.
"Maven 3 will be the first major release for the Apache project
since the Maven 2 release in 2005. It also comes at time when the
project's lead sponsor, Sonatype, is gearing up new commercially
support applications to enhance the Maven ecosystem .
"Currently, Maven 3 is still in active development with the most
recent milestone, the 3.0 alpha 7 build. Maven creator Jason Van
Zyl, who is also CTO of Sonatype, told InternetNews.com that he
expects Maven 3.0 to be generally available in the next two to
three months, though there will be one more alpha release before
the first beta."
