Release Notes: smake now tries to inline "echo" commands and to avoid shell calls in order to speed up execution on platforms with slow process creation such as Win-DOS (cygwin).
Release Notes: Support for some new platforms was added. This release correctly implements the '+' command line prefix even when it has been called with -t (touch). Better file PATH search allows smake to better find its internal .../lib/defaults.smk file that contains the default rules (see libschily/searchinpath.c).
Release Notes: ./.clean now removes symlinks. Experimental rules for using "pcc" on Solaris x86 were added. C-dependencies on AIX are now extracted using "cc -M -qsyntaxonly". As the new Intel 64 bit strcpy() implementation does not work correctly with overlapping strings, smake now includes a ovstrcpy() function to avoid related problems. Smake now supports $(EMPTY): target names. A minor bug in the makefile parser was fixed. The bug caused targets that appeared directly after an otherwise empty line that started with a TAB character to be ignored.
Release Notes: There are many new features. Smake is now usable as a general purpose make program and works on virtually any platform.
Release Notes: Support for 64-bit compilation on IRIX was added. A bug in the macro suffix replacement was fixed. smake now supports the use of: "smake COPTX=-errwarn=%all". A new predefined macro, "NUMBER_SIGN", allows the use of '#' in makefiles. The man page was enhanced.
Release Notes: This release adds various small changes to make smake compliant to POSIX.1.2008.
Release Notes: The smake boostrap build now includes vfork.h to allow compilation again without already having a working smake. The new make directive "unexport" has been added. The man page has been enhanced.
Release Notes: Floating point support was improved for HP-UX and AIX. VMS support was added.
Release Notes: The compile bootstrap is now ensured to install all needed links to the sources to allow compilation when no previous version of smake is installed.
Release Notes: SFU is now supported on Win32 and SunStudio on Linux. A workaround was added for the problem that is triggerend when a schily makefilesystem with a workaround for some gmake bugs is in use. It is now possible to automagically use "bosh" as the Bourne shell port, if present, in order to work around bash bugs. A problem with growable buffer handling was fixed. This is the release candidate for smake-1.2final.
