Description (last modified by Fernando de Oliveira)

New point version




Most of what comes below is from

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/scons/scons-2.3.5.tar.gz

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/scons/scons/2.3.5/Announce.txt

but it is not a stable release, as stated at

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/scons/scons/2.3.5/RELEASE.txt

   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.

At

http://www.scons.org/download.php

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.
