Oh, I should add, maven 3.0 is now required. You should probably use 3.0 beta1.

Based on the incredible talk given by Matthew McCullough [1] at Jazoon, this is absolutely the time to make the switch to Maven 3.

Maven 3 is a drop-in replacement for Maven 2 configuration with the exception that it enforces rules that should have been enforced long ago (plugin versions, no dependency duplicates, etc), which Pete has ensured we've stuck to already. The other major benefits of upgraded are speed, less memory consumption, more intelligent caching and the Maven Shell.
