abuild 1.1.6

I have released abuild 1.1.6. I skipped public releases of 1.1.4 and 1.1.5 since the changes were not significant. 1.1.6 has a few useful enhancements and some minor bug fixes.

abuild 1.1.3

I have released abuild 1.1.3. This version contains primarily cosmetic improvements and a few minor enhancements. The most notable change is that, for multithreaded builds, the default behavior is for abuild to capture output and tag each line of output with an indicator of the build item that produced it. This makes it possible to programmatically parse multithreaded build output.

abuild 1.1.2

I have released version 1.1.2 of abuild. The main change here is that the JVM that runs the java builder is invoked with more max PermGen space. Ant-based builds (with either backend) can load lots of classes, and this can overflow PermGen space. There are also new debugging arguments that allow tweaking of parameters passed to the jvm.

abuild 1.1.1

I have released abuild 1.1.1. There are a few bug fixes and minor enhancements, including a few minor changes to support version 1.8.0 of ant and version 1.42 of boost. Users of 1.1.0 are encouraged to upgrade.

abuild 1.1.b6

I have released version 1.1.b6 of abuild. It is my hope that this is either the last or second-to-last beta release. This beta version is now being used in production at my workplace. It is only still considered beta because of further testing on the new groovy-based Java backend. Remaining capabilities are considered production-ready.

abuild 1.1.b5

I have released version 1.1.b5. Three small changes from 1.1.b4: embed version in DLL name for windows, better handling of a specific error condition in the automated upgraded process, and addition of optional child directory feature.

abuild 1.1.b4

I have released abuild 1.1.b4. There are only a few tiny changes from 1.1.b3, including reworking the global plugin feature to make it more useful.

abuild 1.1.b3

I have released version 1.1.b3 of abuild. There was a 1.1.b2 as well, but I didn't release it publicly. Between 1.1.b1, there have been two significant changes: a fix to a rarely occurring multithreading bug that's been in abuild since early 1.0 alphas, and an improvement of abuild's command-line parsing. This version of abuild is probably more solid than 1.0.3. It is only labeled as beta because the upgrade code and new Java backends have not been thoroughly exercised in production.

abuild 1.0

Abuild version 1.0 has been released. Java support is still considered alpha and is being redesigned for abuild 1.1, but version 1.0 is otherwise a stable release.

1.0 or 1.0.rc2

A 1.0 release of abuild was expected in mid January, but it will be slightly delayed so that one or two pending enhancements can be snuck in. I now anticipate either a 1.0 or 1.0.rc2 release by mid February at the latest.
