GNU Make 4.0 Brings New Features, Extends With Guile
Posted by Michael Larabel in Free Software on 09 October 2013 08:50 AM EDT

Version 4.0 of GNU Make, the widely-used software that's relied upon extensively by developers and those building their software from sources, is now available. GNU Make 4.0 does bring with it a handful of new features and capabilities.

First of all, Make 4.0 has integration support for GNU Guile. Guile is the extension system of the GNU project that is a Scheme programming language implementation and now in the Make world will be the embedded extension language.

GNU Make 4.0 also features a new "output-sync" option, "trace-enables" for tracing of targets, a "none" flag for the "debug" argument, and the "job server" and .ONESHELL features are now supported under Microsoft Windows.

GNU Make 4.0 also has new assignment operators, a new function for writing to files, and other enhancements. It's been reported that Make 4.0 also has more than 80 bug-fixes.>>>
Yours truly has already compiled and installed it in his dpup Wheezy3528 and run a successful test build of JWM.

Can you test build the other thousand included programs so we know which ones this new 'upgrade' has broken? I still use make-3.81 since 3.82 broke lots of builds -without fixing a single one....
