Maven surefire forkMode pertest deprecated. What is the new settings?

That isn't mentioned in the documentation, but <forkMode>pertest</forkMode> is the same as always forking. This is the check in the code:

    return FORK_ALWAYS;

This synonym was made during resolution of the JIRA issue SUREFIRE-96, where, quoting Brett Porter:

pertest and perTest still work, but I've changed it to "always" which seems consistent with "once", and also changed "none" to "never".
