Question regarding version numbers

The Download section on does not mention any version number - there are no branches or tags in the subversion directory. Yet, the Maven repository refers to version 3.0.1.
My question is: do the jars listed on the project's main page are the same that the one in the maven repository (version 3.0.1)? Are there any plans to tag the subversion tree?

I'm curious, in our environment, we don't tag (as in version control system tag) any snapshot builds because its not recommended to use them in production. However any build that doesn't have -SNAPSHOT on the end, we must tag, because otherwise a defect in the code will be much harder to track down if we just know we have a jar labeled 1.1, but nothing in version control claiming to support that version.

Hello Toto

Jar files on the are the latest, (current version is 3.0.1 )
Maven repository has tagged jars because it can't substitute the old jar with the new one
and requires to add the new jar with a different tag

So there are two alternative ways to get the latest jxlayer.jar -
directly download it from the project site or download the latest version from the Maven rep

I prefer to keep it this way
