The Maven Integration for Eclipse 0.9.6 is released
Note that you need to use "Install" action in the Eclipse Update Manager, even if you already have m2eclipse installed. This way you will pickup newly added plugins and features.
There is a known issue that after restarting Eclipse from Update Manager it may fail to initialize JDT plugins. You have to restart Eclipse one more time to clean that up.
If you are using Eclipse Ganymede release and WTP 3.0 (including the one from Eclipse for Java EE developers bundle) we also recommend you update to WTP 3.0.1 from the update site at http://download.eclipse.org/webtools/updates

We appreciate all of it, but especially the time it takes to create test projects that allow us to reproduce a bug.
