Better Offline Capabilities with Maven 2.0.10

This week while traveling on business, I had hoped to get a lot of work done, but was quickly disappointed when I wasn't able to build because maven couldn't download the latest SNAPSHOTs. Even though I had fresh local SNAPSHOT versions that would suffice.

Fortunately, maven 2.0.10 was recently released and it promised fixes for this exact situation (see release notes). Currently I am happily using version 2.0.9.

So now that I am at the hotel I decided to see if an upgrade would help me. I first built the submodule again to make sure I got the dreaded unable to download dependency. Downloaded and installed 2.0.10 and rebuilt again. And I am very excited to report that it worked
