[ANNOUNCEMENT] New: scons-2.3.0-1

SCons is an Open Source software construction tool—that is, a
next-generation build tool. Think of SCons as an improved,
cross-platform substitute for the classic Make utility with
integrated functionality similar to autoconf/automake and compiler
caches such as ccache. In short, SCons is an easier, more reliable
and faster way to build software. 

See for more details.


Upstream does not provide good support for building DLLs for
Cygwin. SCons will build the DLL as libMODULE.dll, but will not
build an import library.

This release includes a patched linker for Cygwin that will:
 * build the DLL as cygMODULE.dll
 * create an import library using the instructions from here:

This patched linker is only lightly tested. Please report any bugs
to the main mailing list. If you're a Python programmer, please
consider providing a patch, as the Cygwin maintainer is not a Python
