Apache Maven 3.6.3 Released

The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache Maven 3.6.3.

Apache 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 piece of information.

You can find out more about Apache Maven at https://maven.apache.org

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

Overview about the changes

  • This is a regression release to fix some critical issues shipped with 3.6.2.
  • Some license issues on binary distribution have been fixed.
  • This Maven distribution is now Reproducible: if you build from source archive, with JDK 8, on Windows, with mvn -DbuildNumber=cecedd343002696d0abb50b32b541b8a6ba2883f package you’ll get bit-by-bit identical output that you can check with sha512 fingerprints. If you’re building on any Unix system, you’ll need to add -Dline.separator=$'\r\n'. See the https://maven.apache.org/guides/mini/guide-reproducible-builds.html for more details.

For more information read https://maven.apache.org/docs/3.6.3/release-notes.html
