I made it! I've beaten Maven's Release plugin after all and also the whole
process of getting the stuff to Maven central.
Java Simon 3.0.0 is out. 2.x version is dead and not supported anymore.
Check the news on our project page: http://code.google.com/p/javasimon/
There you can find all fixed issues and all important changes - the most
important being Java 6 support, but not Java 5 anymore, and JDBC 4 driver,
while JDBC 3 is out of the game.
Simon is uploaded to Maven central repository, so it should be available to
all of you now. :-)
Enjoy... awaiting your feedback
