digitalmars.D.announce - DSSS 0.74 released.

DSSS, the D Shared Software System, is a tool to ease the building, 
installation, configuration and acquisition of D software.

For those that like versions to have names, this is:
DSSS 0.74, "Extremely Delayed Release"

I didn't get everything I wanted to in 0.74, but it really needed to be 
released, so here it is.

         - Made `dsss net fetch` fall back on copying where renaming is
           impossible (see ticket #138).
         - rebuild now ignores -v1
         - Rebuild: Merged DMD 2.007.
         - Rebuild: rebuild_choosedc now works when installed to 
/usr/bin (see
           ticket #143).
         - Added an RPM specfile (see ticket #144).
         - Rebuild now supports the -debuglib and -defaultlib flags.
         - DSSS will no longer try to build if no config file is 
specified and
           no file are specified on the command line.
         - Auxiliary builds of binaries are now allowed with names e.g.
           [main.d+feature] (see ticket #153).


As per usual, more information and downloads are available at

Oh, don't worry, feedback doesn't get to my head - I know I'm super-amazing regardless. - Gregor Richards

So prove it to the rest of us by putting a fraction of that super-amazing-ness to work on implementing a versioning system for dsss. :-) --bb

I'm getting the dreaded Error 1: Previous Definition Different : messages now with 0.74 that I wasn't getting with the previous version. So it looks like I'll be reverting to 0.73. :-( --bb

BTW I think I recall you posting saying that you've been bouncing back and forth between two different behaviors and one works for some people and one works for others -- If that's the case then maybe you just need to make that choice of behavior an option for now until the linker bugs in dmd get fixed. Make one behavior default but provide a flag that will select the other behavior for those that are having linker troubles. --bb
