[odb-users] Cannot Compile ODB Compiler on RHEL 8.5

Two more questions:

Do you have a timeframe for when 2.5.0 will become the stable release?
Also, I downloaded the odb-2.5.0-b.21.tar.gz source and tried to build it
using "./configure; make; make install" but it appears there is no
configure file or Makefile. Do I have to build ODB using the build2 tool?
