The ccontrol program takes over the roles of the compiler and linker, and reads a configuration file to decide what to do before invoking them. This is particularly useful for centralized control over commands and options, such as enabling distcc(1) and ccache(1).

Release Notes: An infinite loop which occurred when ccache is used without distcc was fixed.
Release Notes: A GNOME applet for changing symlink was added. A portability fix was made to allow the software to work on PPC. Better performance and less thrashing is exhibited with ccache and distcc when ccache mostly hits.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug where the config file wasn't reread if it was a symlink and was changed (the most common configuration).
Release Notes: Debian packaging and the config.status file were removed from the tarball.
Release Notes: You can now set environment variables, such as CCACHE_DIR.
