Currently it only shows -SNAPSHOT and never checks for new snapshot (even though default maven behaviour would be to check for newer version every time). Due to this:
- Reporting is worse as we don’t know exactly which snapshot was released
- It’s impossible to choose particular snapshot when making release
- It’s confusing people (look here for maven and snapshot issue)
- It forces to re-download package even if it was downloaded, when really what is expected is to download if new one is available
That is a big miss from our maven integration making it very hard to use in scenario where you want to follow SNAPSHOT and release convention.
