Maven Plugin - External Runner

In 8.0 Build 9013 the option to switch to an external maven as opposed to embedded isn't there.

Anyone know where it went?

This is a limiting factor for us upgrading to 8.0.

Anyone from IDEA monitoring this forum?

Thanks,

yes, i cannot change to an external maven either and it prevents me from setting memory settings so that i dont get out of memory when running maven.

in fact, i get out of memory when i do an 'update folders'.

is removing the ability to run an external maven a regression?

Hi, Trever,

In IDEA 8.0 all Maven builds are run with extarnal Maven; embedder is used only to import the project's structure.
To configure IDEA's memory settings please edit $idea_home$/bin/idea.properties file; to configure Maven's memory settings go to Settings->Maven->Runner and edit VM Parameters field.

Thanks,
Anton Makeev
