Description (last modified by Fernando de Oliveira)

New point version

Most of what comes below is from

but it is not a stable release, as stated at

   A new SCons checkpoint release, 2.3.5, is now available
   on the SCons download page:
   A SCons "checkpoint release" is intended to provide early access to
   new features so they can be tested in the field before being released
   for adoption by other software distributions.

   We *do not recommend* that downstream distributions (Debian, Fedora,
   etc.) package a checkpoint release, mainly to avoid confusing the
   "public" release numbering with the long checkpoint release names.


it is named "production":

The current production release of SCons is 2.3.5 [ChangeLog].
The last stable release prior to this one is 2.3.4.

RELEASE 2.3.5 - Mon, 17 Jun 2015 21:07:32 -0700

    - Documentation fixes for libraries.xml and
      builders-writing.xml (#2989 and #2990)

    - Extended docs for InstallVersionedLib/SharedLibrary,
      and added SKIP_WIN_PACKAGES argument to build script (PR #230, #3002).

    - Fixed symlink support (PR #227, #2395).
    - Updated debug-count test case (PR #229).

    - Fixed incomplete LIBS flattening and substitution in
      Program scanner(PR #205, #2954).

    - Fixed several D tests under the different OS.
    - Add support for f08 file extensions for Fortran 2008 code.

    - Show --config choices if no argument is specified (PR #202).

      activated compression for ZIP archives.

    - Fix for VersionedSharedLibrary under 'sunos' platform.
    - Fixed dll link with precompiled headers on MSVC 2012
    - Added an 'exclude' parameter to Glob()

    - Support for multiple cmdargs (one per variant) in VS project files.
