Maven's mechanisms for loading plugins and build extensions has been ref= actored. You can find more information in the Maven 2.1 Plugin and Extension = Loading Design document.=20
Aggregator mojos bound to the lifecycle have been deprecated. This pract= ice can produce some very strange results, and isn't really the right solut= ion for many of the problems it attempts to solve. I'm hoping to include so= me better options for bracketing the normal build - both before, and after,= explicitly - to make aggregator mojos obsolete, but for now they've been d= eprecated to avoid disrupting backward compatibility.=20
Also, aggregator mojos that are bound to the lifecycle = will only be allowed to execute at most once during the build, to limit red= undant execution. These mojos are meant to act on all projects in the react= or at once, and binding them to one pom.xml file is dangerous in that it ca= n produce different build results depending on whether that pom.xml is incl= uded. This is further complicated if two modules in a reactor configure the= same aggregator mojo...in which case, it may run multiple times...or, when= the aggregator is configured in the parent pom, where it will run for each= descendant module.=20
The fact that plexus-utils is hidden from plugins in the newer releases= of Maven means that plugin.getConfiguration() from maven-model can cause a= ClassCastException, if used from within a mojo. The plan to fix this is ba= sically just to import Xpp3Dom from the shaded plexus-utils version in mave= n-core within the plugin's classrealm. This should allow us to share the sa= me instance of that class (only, shouldn't really affect other p-u classes)= and preserve backward compatibility for existing plugin releases.
