- A new embedded Maven runtime based on the
latest released Maven version 3.0.4,
- Significantly improved “convert to
maven project” implementation
- ….and many other fixes and improvements. You can find complete list of changes in this release in Eclipse’s Issue Tracker.

EclipseCon 2011 is approaching quickly, but it’s not too late to make plans to head to Santa Clara, California this month!
EclipseCon is the conference for anyone involved in Eclipse. As a proud member of the Eclipse Foundation, Sonatype is looking forward to another year of great talks, tutorials and BOF’s. We will be hosting a number of extended workshops as well as talks in the Cypress Room all day on Tuesday, March 22, 2011.
Sonatype founder Jason van Zyl will be giving a presentation on Next Generation Development Infrastructure with Maven, m2eclipse, Nexus & Hudson.
All development organizations eventually converge on a set of tools to reduce costs, lower onboarding time, and leverage knowledge in strong communities to create standard processes. To this end we see in many organizations the emergence of a standard development stack consisting of Maven, m2eclipse, Nexus & Hudson. In this talk, Jason van Zyl, Founder of the Apache Maven project, will discuss the future of Maven and specifically Maven 3.x, the rapidly approaching m2eclipse 1.0 release, the recent Nexus 1.9 release and roadmap, and emerging tools such as Maven Shell and Polyglot Maven. Sonatype itself leverages this stack on a daily basis and this discussion will focus not only on the tools individually, but how they can work together to create a best practices approach to building and delivering your software in your organization.
Stay tuned to the Sonatype blog for updates on Sonatype’s talks and presentations at EclipseCon 2011. And for the latest news and updates from the Sonatype team, follow us on Twitter @SonatypeCM.

If you use the m2eclipse POM XML editor, you will be interested to know that we’ve made a number of improvements to the interface. Yesterday, we introduced some addition auto-correct options and automatic integration of the POM XML editor and the Artifact Search dialog. Today, we focus on improved navigation options now available in the m2eclipse POM XML Editor. By making use of the current effective POM, we are able to give you more information right at your fingertips.
The screenshot below shows options that are available to you by hovering over on an expression in the m2eclipse POM XML Editor.
Today we are releasing m2e 0.12.1. Despite our previous announcement that 0.12.0 would be the last version made available from Sonatype, we have decided to cut this point release to make available new versions of the m2e dependencies.
Most notably, this release includes recently released Maven 3.0.2 embedded runtime and an updated version of Async HTTP Client that resolves all known issues reported against m2e 0.12.0, and thus helps make m2e work better in corporate environments.
As usual this version of m2e is made available from the Eclipse Marketplace and from http://m2eclipse.sonatype.org/sites/m2e/.
