digitalmars.D.announce - DSSS and Rebuild 0.67 released.
- Gregor Richards <Richards codu.org> Jun 29 2007
DSSS, the D Shared Software System, is a tool to ease the building, installation, configuration and acquisition of D software. This is another bug-fix release for the most part. I've added a few features in my never-ending quest to actually close some tickets :). Of particular interest is the new 'defaulttargets' feature, which allows you to specify a list of targets which are built by default. This is best illustrated by an example. Let's say you have a libdunzip, and it has an example program on using it. The example program isn't particularly useful, but it would be nice to allow building it in the dsss.conf for reference purposes. Before, there was no (easy) way to do this. Now, the dsss.conf file would look like this: name = libdunzip defaulttargets = dunzip [dunzip] [dunzipExample.d] Here's the full changelog for 0.67 and 0.66: 0.67 from 0.66: - Rebuild: Fixed generation of libraries with DMD+GNU/Linux (see ticket #75). - Rebuild: Should now compile on FreeBSD (see ticket #82). - Added an option (--keep-response-files for DSSS and -keeprfiles for Rebuild) to not delete response files (see ticket #62). - Added the dsss.conf option 'defaultTargets' (see ticket #64). - Added an option to DSSS to manually specify the URL to receive the source list from (see ticket #77). 0.66 from 0.65: - Rebuild: Fixed a bug with -listnffiles and -of conflicting (see ticket #66). - Some dsss-net-installs which failed due to the above bug should now work (see ticket #66). - Rebuild: Now (again) converts all paths to backslash-delimited paths on Windows. Apparently DMD only does this conversion internally in some scenarios (see ticket #70). - Rebuild: Fixed a bug with documentation generation causing a segfault in some situations (see ticket #74). - Rebuild: Again moved documentation into the compiler, to fix a bug causing docs to be generated without candydoc. As per usual, more information and downloads are available at: DSSS: http://www.dsource.org/projects/dsss/ Rebuild: http://www.dsource.org/projects/dsss/wiki/Rebuild - Gregor Richards PS: DSSS Windows binaries will be up in a few minutes.
