Central Search Changelog

2018-08-08 - Search.maven.org site upgrade⚓︎

  • search.maven.org took a whole new look geared towards the modern user. Thanks to significant input from the community since the search.maven.org/beta launch in 2017 as well as a few dedicated engineers here at Sonatype, we've managed to deliver a new platform that greatly improves upon original Maven Central Search and also retains the critical functionality relied upon by software engineers around the world.

    What changed?

    • Improvements to provide a better user experience
    • Display known vulnerabilities on open source components via Sonatype OSS Index
    • Fuzzy result matching for more more helpful results in case of spelling error
    • Improvements to allow for better use on mobile devices

    What's being preserved?

    Changes to Bookmarkable URLs:

    • Post update, any bookmarkable URLs will need to be appended with "/classic" in order to resolve correctly.
    • Upon transitioning to the new site, we will be updating the API guide with the correct bookmarkable URLs.
