Changes since version 1.0.0-alpha-4

New features:

  • FAILED modules are not rebuilt unless changed (or their dependencies changed)
  • added command "doall" pretending that all modules have changed = full rebuild


  • stanalone jar installer - fixed NPE in artifact downloading
  • return nonzero exit code on failure


  • log file and failure indicator stored in subdir of repository's installation target
  • added option --version, both in standard and in xml format
  • simplified the way of listing installed artifact of a module (not using special mojo on mvn commandline)
