    The install-apps goal has been removed in the most recent version of the plugin so there is no need for an update to the plugin to undo a deployment to dropins.

    If the server is running you should be able to use the "undeploy" goal to remove the applications from the dropins/ directory. See for details. We currently don't have a goal to remove applications from the dropins/ directory while the server is not running. That's something we can add if that's what you are looking for.
