      linking, which makes expressing library->library dependency much
    - Performance was considerably improved.
    - Regression testing framework now works on windows.
    - The "alias" rule can have usage requirements and passes on usage
      requirements of sources.
    - The "stage" rule can traverse dependencies.
    - Support for "def files" was implemented.
    - Targets paths are now shorter.
    - Darwin toolset was improved.
