The Java Stack team is pleased to announce the first release candidate of Stack 3.1. The most significant upgrade in this release is the upgrade to Maven 3. Because this change may require more upgrade effort than a typical maintenance release we've decided to make this a minor release instead of a maintenance release.

The following is a list of some of the main changes in this release:
  • Support for Maven 3. Maven 3 is required to build a Stack 3.1+ project.
  • Complete rewrite of the Pseudo-i18n maven plugin. Notable changes include:
    • Support for bundles located in project dependencies
    • Support for simplified pseudo bundle creation for development
    • Proper handling of html in bundles
  • Upgraded several libraries including:
    • GWT 2.1.1
    • CXF 2.3.2
    • Jackson 1.6
    • Selenium 2.0b1
  • Improved all our maven deployment plugins to support Maven serverId
    for more secure username/password resolution
  • Take advantage of a WAM Emulator config Schema
  • Many bug fixes and minor improvements.
Again the main upgrade note for this release is the upgrade from Maven 2 to Maven 3. Continuous build boxes will need to be upgraded to Maven 3 and developers may need to upgrade their local maven installs.
