What's new in XMvn 2.0.0
XMvn 2.0.0 was released on 2014-05-29. Most important changes
* Major features
* New metadata format
XMvn 2.0.0 now reads and writes the new Javapackages metadata
format instead of dependency maps. Read-only depmap support
remains, but was deprecated.
* Ivy integration
Starting with version 2.0.0 XMvn provides a connector for Apache
Ivy which enables Ivy or its clients to have access to XMvn
resolver and deployer.
This feature enables Ant build scripts using Ivy tasks or other
build systems that use Ivy to use local system artifact
repository to resolve dependencies and more, making Ivy a
first-class citizen among other build systems.
* Artifact deployment
Starting with version 2.0.0 XMvn provides an API to deploy
artifacts to system repositories.
* API separation
XMvn 2.0.0 ships with a separate API module, which makes it more
clear which parts of XMvn are part of public interface and which

loader to prevent unwanted classes from polluting Maven Core or

XMvn 2.0.0 improves artifact filtering for installation
* Other changes
* Migration to JSR-330

Plexus to Sisu Inject, which provides JSR-330-compatible IoC

Java package names were renamed from
* XMvn Installer rewrite
XMvn Installer was rewritten from scratch in 2.0.0 and a new
pluggable API was added.

Effective POM's are no longer installed during package build.
XMvn resolver is able to generate them on demand during package
build from the new Javapackages metadata.
