Announcement typo
Unfotunately, an error creeped in the relelease announcement. In

"omits --rpath options when linking in-project executables or shared libraries"

it should be

"EMITS -rpath options when linking in-project executables or shared libraries"

The intent is that a developer is able to run and debug the dynamically linked executables without installing them or setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to in-project shared object locations or using wrapper shell scripts. Thus, the linker is given the --rpath/-R option for shared libraries, which are built in this project.

On the other hand, when installing dynamically linked executables or shared libraries, not rpath options are emitted, so the location of the shared libraries is found in operating system specific ways, e.g. ldconfig in GNU/LInux.
