Maven2 just got 2 great improvements

Maven2 recently got 2 big improvements.

mvn archetype:create

allows you to create a new project from scratch and start with an existing project infrastructure that you can easily adapt. Previously you had to pass options in via the infamous -D parameter, now it guides you through some kind of wizard.

The other enhancement I just read on Brett Porters website where you will in a future release be able to condense your xml in the pom to attributes (more info here)
Finally you'll be able to see all your dependencies without having to scroll for ages :)

Even quieter than before.

The project I'm currently doing in my day-job went live this week. So plenty of work (as well as hours), but fortunately the dust is finally settling down.
