Jason recently talked about Maven 3 at the Maven Meetup on March 19, 2009. Here is his entire presentation. In it, Jason discusses plans for Maven 3: support for incremental builds, changes to Plexus, better multi-language support, a queryable lifecycle, changes to the Plugin API, extensible reporting, a refactored plugin manager, project builder, and a new subsystem for interacting with repositories. You’ll hear Jason discuss plans to make Maven 3 more pluggable and to prepare for a Maven that can integrate with various repository formats. Jason also talks about changing the report generation subsystem to be more focused on report generation and integration with tools such as Sonar and Hudson.
