Maven: The Definitive Guide 0.7.2 Published

This release of The Definitive Guide adds some documentation for a few Maven 2.2.0 features, and it addresses a number of typos uncovered during our continued effort to produce a high-quality, free reference for Apache Maven. You can see for yourself by:

Major changes in this version:

  1. A new chapter on configuring Maven that contains some sections covering default mojo execution settings.
  2. A massive number of spelling errors, grammar errors, and typos fixed. Special thanks to Grant Birchmeier for finding issues in the Preface, Intro, and Installation chapters.
