Project Release Information
Lots of bugfixes and portability improvements were
made. The "--scan-includes" option was added to
distcc. This shows which headers distcc would send
to the remote machine in pump mode, without
actually compiling anything. This provides a
simple interface to the include server. The
"--disable-Werror" option was added to configure.
This disables the use of gcc's -Werror option when
building distcc, allowing compilation of distcc to
succeed even if gcc issues warnings.
This release contains a major new feature: distcc-pump mode. With pump mode, distcc is now able to distribute preprocessing too, not just compilation. As a result, this release can be up to three times faster than earlier versions. It also contains many other new features and bugfixes.
This release fixes small bugs in handling -x and -specs compiler options.
Portability bugs for Solaris and amd64 were fixed.
Various portability and minor bugs were fixed.
distcc is a parallel build system that distributes compilation of C/C++/ObjC code across machines on a network. It can be set up in just a few minutes and makes builds up to ten times faster. It does not require machines to share a filesystem or have the same libraries or header files, and installation does not need superuser privileges.
