Release Notes: The build section was refactored so that it's cleaner. Self-packaging was fixed so it should actually work if you don't already have installwatch installed. The --build-with option was added. By using --skip-build and --install-with, bpkg can now be used as a substitute for checkinstall.
Release Notes: Python packages are now always built with -f. A bug with self packaging was fixed. A --md5=<sum> argument was added for verifying the MD5 sum of a source file after download. The Python version is now extracted from setup.py. Jamfile support was added.
