## What's autobuild ?
Autobuild imports, configures, builds and installs various kinds of software packages.
It can be used in software development to make sure that nothing is broken in the
build process of a set of packages, or can be used as an automated installation tool.

Autobuild config files are Ruby scripts which configure rake to
* imports the package from a SCM or (optionnaly) updates it
* configures it. This phase can handle code generation, configuration (for
instance for autotools-based packages), ...
* build
* install

It takes the dependencies between packages into account in its build process,
updates the needed environment variables (+PKG_CONFIG_PATH+, +PATH+,


## Version 1.2.4
* git update phase now fetches the repository and branch specified by the
autobuild script. It previously was using remote tracking branches. This
will allow to detect branch changes in the autobuild specification.
* documentation support. Packages can now declare that they can generate
documentation (see Package#doc_task and CMake#with_doc). That documentation
is generated post-build and installed.
* fix build updates in the CMake package class.
