CYGWIN NEWS:
============
This release includes a patch to fixed DLL import library generation
as reported here:
  http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2013-08/msg00107.html

DESCRIPTION:
============
SCons is an Open Source software construction tool—that is, a
next-generation build tool. Think of SCons as an improved,
cross-platform substitute for the classic Make utility with
integrated functionality similar to autoconf/automake and compiler
caches such as ccache. In short, SCons is an easier, more reliable
and faster way to build software.

See http://www.scons.org/ for more details.

CYGWIN NOTES:
=============

Upstream does not provide good support for building DLLs for
Cygwin. SCons will build the DLL as libMODULE.dll, but will not
build an import library.

This release includes a patched linker for Cygwin that will:
 * build the DLL as cygMODULE.dll
 * create an import library using the instructions from here:
   http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/dll.html

This patched linker is only lightly tested. Please report any bugs
to the main mailing list. If you're a Python programmer, please
consider providing a patch, as the Cygwin maintainer is not a Python
programmer.

DOWNLOAD:
=========
