qbs 1.7.1

Important bug fixes:
* Fixed race condition in qmake build (QBS-1091)
* Qt Creator no longer leaves empty build directories
behind after cancelled project loading (QTCREATORBUG-17543)
* Fixed an exception crossing the API boundary

qbs 1.7.0

* Added a generator for Visual Studio projects.
* The Group item is now nestable.
* Stricter type checking for properties.
* Added support for generating qrc files.
* Added full support for the QtScxml module.
* Introduced cpp.soVersion.
* Added support for building Inno Setup packages.
* Tentative support for Visual Studio 2017.
* We now assume UTF-8 encoding for project files.
* In Scanner items, input.fileName now contains
a filename rather than the full path.
* Warnings encountered during project resolving are now stored
and re-displayed when the project is loaded.
* Documentation was improved in several places, most
notably for the Rule item.
* Support for the deprecated Transformer item was removed.
Important bug fixes:
* Long paths on Windows are handled (QBS-1068).
* Cyclic module dependencies are detected (QBS-1044).
* The libqbscore soname now includes the minor version,
so that it will not stay the same across ABI changes

qbs 1.6.1

* Added cpp.linkerWrapper property.
Important bug fixes:
* Fixed a number of bugs evaluating module properties (QBS-845, QBS-1005).
* Fixed x86_64 > x86 cross compiling (QBS-1028).
* Fixed dynamic rules with generated inputs (QBS-1029).

qbs 1.6.0

  • Added lex_yacc module.
  • Introduced property cpp.systemRunPaths.
  • Introduced the ability to check a module's version in a Depends item.
  • Introduced cpp.driverFlags, which allows specifying flags to be
    passed to the compiler driver (in any mode), but never the system linker.
  • Introduced cpp.linkerMode property to allow selection of the
    correct linker (C driver, C++ driver, or system linker) based on the
    objects being linked.
  • Added automatic escaping of arguments passed to the
    cpp.linkerFlags and cpp.platformLinkerFlags properties using the -Wl
    or -Xlinker syntaxes. To revert to the old behavior,
    Project.minimumQbsVersion can be set to a version lower than 1.6.
  • Each build configuration now requires a unique name, which
    is specified on the command line in the same place that qbs.buildVariant
    used to be specified. This allows building for multiple configurations
    with the same variant.

This package has no dependencies.
