Available for IDEA 5.0 & 6.0 through IDEA's built-in plugin manager, directly from IDEA's plugin page or from the homepage http://quebbemann.kicks-ass.net/idea-maven-plugin/download.html
This version is a feature and bugfix release. Please checkout the release notes below and also the updated documentation on http://quebbemann.kicks-ass.net/idea-maven-plugin/usage.html
Before version 1.1 of the plugin, Maven was called via the start script provided with the normal Maven installation. In order to get better access to the running Maven process Maven now is called directly by starting a Java process. This for example allows terminating the running Maven process by the user.
Any feedback or comments are greatly appreciated.
