The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the
Apache Maven Deploy Plugin, version 3.0.0-M1.

The deploy plugin is primarily used during the deploy phase, to add your
artifact(s) to a remote repository for sharing with other developers and
projects. This is usually done in an integration or release environment. It can
also be used to deploy a particular artifact (e.g. a third party jar like Sun’s
non redistributable reference implementations).

Important Note since 3.0.0-M1:

  • Maven 3.X only
  • Minimum JDK 7+
  • The maven-deploy-plugin will generate the needed checksums
    during the transfer to your remote repository.

Usage Note:

  • Use the maven-deploy-plugin version 3.0.0-M1 only in combintation
    with the maven-install-plugin version 3.0.0-M1.


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