The third public alpha release of the
build2 toolchain is out and includes a large number of major new features in the build system (support for Windows/VC, C compilation,
pkg-config integration, library versioning and export model, as well as the
uninstall operation) and package manager (support for repository authentication and system packages). See the Release Notes for a detailed discussion of these and other new features.
I’ve also given a talk at this year’s CppCon which gives a nice introduction to the build system and package manager. The video is already available, check it out.
