The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache Maven 3.8.1
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.
Maven 3.8.1 is available via https://maven.apache.org/download.cgi
The core release is independent of plugin releases. Further releases of plugins will be made separately.
If you have any questions, please consult:
- the web site: https://maven.apache.org/
- the maven-user mailing list: https://maven.apache.org/mailing-lists.html
- the reference documentation: https://maven.apache.org/ref/3.8.1/
This release with CVE fixes is a result based on the findings and feedback of Jonathan Leitschuh and Olaf Flebbe.
One of the changes that might impact your builds is the way custom repositories defined in dependency POMs will be handled. By default external insecure repositories will now be blocked (localhost over HTTP will still work). Configuration can be adjusted via the conf/settings.xml.
