The Apache Maven team is pleased to announce the release of the
Apache Maven Resources Plugin, Version 3.3.0.

The Resources Plugin handles the copying of project resources to the output
directory. There are two different kinds of resources: main resources and test
resources. The difference is that the main resources are the resources
associated to the main source code while the test resources are associated to
the test source code.

Thus, this allows the separation of resources for the main source code and its
unit tests.

You should specify the version in your project's plugin configuration:

2  org.apache.maven.plugins
3  maven-resources-plugin
4  3.3.0

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