fab is a software build utility for Linux/Unix systems featuring integrated dependency discovery. Its goal is to provide reliable builds, optimally organized for parallel and incremental execution, with a minimal set of dependencies provided by the programmer.

Release Notes: Enables generation of build scripts that do not traverse nofile boundaries (the +n selector). The liblistwise operator has a reworked .so model to allow one-to-many. Node selectors has a new interface for specifying targets for building/discovery that allows full use of liblistwise/list syntax and the fg operator. The -K option has been added to enable buildscripts with variables settable at runtime. Error reporting has been changed to only display the immediate site of the error by default instead of unwinding the entire stack. The -f option should now work from any working directory.
