I'm pleased to announce that the GWT 2.0.4 jars are now available in the maven central repository. Better maven support has been frequently requested on the issue tracker and mailing list, and this is a first step in that direction. In the future, Google will publish GWT releases to maven central as part of the release process.
The GWT 2.0.4 jars currently in the repository include gwt-user, gwt-dev, and gwt-servlet. Please note that gwt-soyc-vis as a separate jar has been deprecated and soyc (story of your compile) is now bundled with gwt-dev.
