I second that: having a correctly working Maven integration is crucial for us as well.
Even though the mentioned bugs weren't there in 7.0.2, 7.0.3 fixes other Maven related problems from 7.0.2.
Please make sure to release 7.0.3 only when the newly introduced bugs are fixed!


Hello Ben,

I notice there are a lot of regression issues (as well as fixes) in
the maven support in the 7.0.3 release candidate.

e.g. http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-17318 and

Are these likely to get fixed before it is released?

Both of these will stop us upgrading to the new release - as our
(valid) maven builds won't import any longer.

Unfortunately both of these problems are regressions in the Maven embedder
(a component of Maven itself) rather than our plugin, so we can't get them
fixed quickly at this moment. Hopefully the fixes will appear in one of the
first 7.0.4 EAP builds.

In the future, we're going to be more closely involved with the development
of Maven embedder, in order to be able to provide better turnaround for such

Does this mean the issues don't occur when using external Maven instead of embedded?


No, these problems relate to the project import that uses maven embedder only.
