a new shiny buildtool that currently completes in the total of ~ 4 min..
1 min. conf time
2:30 min. build time
Where autotools takes:
1:50 min. conf time
3:40 min. build time.
meson was taken because it went quite good for enlightenment, and is a traction gaining system that is also used by other mayor projects. Additionally, the DSL that is defined my meson makes the configuration of the builds a lot easier to read.
Further informations can be gathered from the README.meson
Right now, bindings & windows support are missing.
It is highly recommented to use meson 0.48 due to optimizations in meson
that reduced the time the meson call would need.
