    Release Notes: This is an incremental release to lay the groundwork necessary for upcoming substantial performance and memory usage improvements.

      Release Notes: Performance improvements were achieved for subsequent builds. The program now quickly skips building of packages that have already been completed, and doesn't emit event notifications for package start and package stop for those packages.

        Release Notes: The necessary adjustments to task execution were made to facilitate support for "make -j". There were minor fixes to the event handling for more consistency in the creation of event handlers. A bug in the svn:// fetcher was fixed; the protocol and revision parameters were inadvertantly swapped.

          Ease of use
          It is delightfully easy to use and when coupled with openembedded meta data you can create your entire finished project, be it production or prototype, within hours of installation.

          Simply fantastic!

          Looking forward to the C implementation ;)
