Microsoft Visual Studio integration with Nexus Lifecycle

We are excited to announce the availability of the Nexus IQ Server plugin for Microsoft Visual Studio users. Developers who use Visual Studio now have access to the precise component intelligence available in Nexus Lifecycle. They can easily identify which components meet corporate guidelines and which ones do not as soon as the component is selected. Having this intelligence directly within the IDE enables developers to choose components that are free from security vulnerabilities, license risk, and meets quality standards early in the SDLC.

Roller Project Converts Build to Maven

Sonatype has spent the last few years investing in the Maven ecosystem. We've created solid documentation, we've invested heavily in making sure that m2eclipse provides solid IDE integration, and we're about to unleash even more tools that will make it even easier for developers to develop and share software. Here's an excerpt from Dave Johnson's entry on converting the Roller project's build to Maven:

I was a Maven hater and resisted it for a long time but over the years Maven has gotten much better, it's well supported in IDEs and as far as I can tell, Maven has replaced Ant as the de facto build system for Java projects. If you want new developers be able to easily build, debug and run your code via command or their favorite IDE then Maven is the way to go, and that's especially true for open source projects like Roller. That's why I spent a couple of weekends learning Maven and converting Roller's build process from Ant to Maven (ROL-1849). The process of conversion wasn't too difficult.
