Today, we released SBuild 0.7.2.

In this release, again, we refined the Plugin API. You can now express inter-plug-in dependencies by extending the PluginWithDependencies trait. Also, your plugin factory can get notified whenever your plug-in’s configuration was changes by extending the PluginConfigureAware trait. This will be especially useful, if you want to push configuration changes forward to plugins your plugin depends on. Both changes open the door for meta plugins, that (transparently) rely on other plugins to do the work.

Also some other improvements and bug fixes found their way into this version. E.g. the ZipSchemeHandler was extended to allow extraction from ZIP resources based on regular expression patterns. Also, this version of SBuild should run with a Java 6 Runtime again, which was not the case with version 0.7.0 and 0.7.1.

For a complete list of changes read the Changelog.
