Maven support question

Hi all,

My question concerns those interested in running Maven builds from the build server. Current release version of Maven is 2.0.4 and
version 2.1 is in development. The problem is that version 2.1 provides better support for embedding Maven (so called
MavenEmbedder). We've implemented the BuildServer runner capable to run Maven 2.1 using the Embedder that is a part of a core Maven
2.1 libraries (contrary to Maven 2.0 where the embedder is a plugin). There are some technical problems with the embedder of version
2.0.x.
The question is: whether it is critical (and why) to support Maven version 2.0 or it is ok to run your build on Maven2.1 snapshot,
bundled together with Agent libraries (just like ant is bundled). Of course, it is possible to run Maven 2.1 istalled separately on
the Agent machine.

i think it will be fine to have teamware use maven 2.1-snapshot instead of 2.0.x. especially if it is bundled with the agent.

if u release it now, i will be the first to try it!
