- SCons 4.8.0:
  * GetSConsVersion() added to retrieve the SCons version
  * Python 3.6 support marked as deprecated
    Build with Python 3.11 on Leap.
  * Improved Dump() json format detail
  * Possibly incompatible change: All exceptions during the
    execution of an Action are now returned by value rather than by
    raising an exception, for more consistent behavior.
    With this change, user created Actions should now catch and
    handle expected exceptions (whereas previously many of these
    were silently caught and suppressed by the SCons Action
    exection code).
  * AddOption and the internal add_local_option which AddOption
    calls now recognize a "settable" keyword argument to indicate a
    project-added option can also be modified using SetOption.
    If you were using ninja and using SetOption() for ninja options
    in your SConscripts prior to loading the ninja tool, you will
    now see an error. The fix is to move the SetOption() to after
    you've loaded the ninja tool.
  * Bug fixes and compatible improvements

- switch to smaller tarball, simplifying spec file and build

Fri Jan  3 19:23:47 CET 2020 - Matej Cepl <>

- Switch off tests
- Update to 3.1.2 (jsc#SLE-12199, bsc#1169143):
    - Added debug option "action_timestamps" which outputs to
      stdout the absolute start and end time for each target.
    - Fix suncxx tool (Oracle Studio compiler) when using Python 3.
      Previously would throw an exception.
      Resolved by properly handling tool version string output as
    - Resolved a typo in engine.SCons.Tool
    - Resolved a race condition in multithreaded Windows builds
      with Python 2 in the case where a child process is spawned
      while a Python action has a file open. Original author:
      Ryan Beasley.
    - Added memoization support for calls to Environment.Value()
      in order to improve performance of repeated calls.
    - Update Command() function to accept target_scanner,
      source_factory, and target_factory arguments.
      This makes Command act more like a one-off builder.
    - Added support for "-imacros" to ParseFlags
    - Fix CheckFunc detection code for Visual 2019. Some functions
      (e.g. memmove) were incorrectly recognized as not available.
    - Fix stacktrace when using SCons with Python 3.5+ and
      SunOS/Solaris related tools.	
    - Avoid crash with UnicodeDecodeError on Python 3 when
      a Latex log file in non-UTF-8 encoding (e.g. containing
      umlauts in Latin-1 encoding when the fontenc package is
      included with \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}) is read.
    - Improved threading performance by ensuring NodeInfo is
      shared across threads. Results in ~13% improvement for
      parallel builds (-j# > 1) with many shared nodes.
    - Improve performance of Entry.disambiguate() by making check
      for most common case first, preventing unnecessary IO.
    - Improved DAG walk performance by reducing unnecessary work
      when there are no un-visited children.
    - Replace instances of string find method with "in" checks
      where the index from find() was not used.
    - CmdStringHolder fix from issue #3428
    - Turn previously deprecated debug options into failures:
      --debug=tree, --debug=dtree, --debug=stree,
    - Experimental New Feature: Enable caching MSVC configuration
      If SCONS_CACHE_MSVC_CONFIG shell environment variable is
      set, SCons will cache the results of past calls to
      vcvarsall.bat to a file; integrates with existing memoizing
      of such vars. On vs2019 saves 5+ seconds per SCons
      invocation, which really helps test suite runs.
    - Remove deprecated SourceSignatures, TargetSignatures
    - Remove deprecated Builder keywords: overrides and scanner
    - Remove deprecated env.Copy
    - Remove deprecated BuildDir plus SConscript keyword
    - A number of documentation improvements.
- scons-src-3.1.2.tar.gz is just renamed documentation for 3.1.1
  (upstream hasn’t released new documentation tarball)

    and other environment settings in one routine called by all four 
    tex tools.
  - Fix problem with filenames of sideeffects when the user changes
    the name of the output file from the latex default
  - Add scanning of files included in Latex by means of \lstinputlisting{}

- updated to 1.1.0.d20081125

  - Improve the robustness of GetBuildFailures() by refactoring
    SCons exception handling (especially BuildError exceptions).
  - Fix $FORTRANMODDIRPREFIX for the ifort (Intel Fortran) tool.
  - Don't pre-generate an exception message (which will likely be
    ignored anyway) when an EntryProxy re-raises an AttributeError.
  - Handle Java inner classes declared within a method.
  - Fix label placement by the " func" subcommand
    when a profile value was close to (or equal to) 0.0.
  - Fix env.Append() and env.Prepend()'s ability to add a string to
    list-like variables like $CCFLAGS under Python 2.6.
  - Other Python2.6 portability:  don't use "as" (a Python 2.6 keyword).
    Don't use the deprecated Exception.message attribute.
  - Support using the -f option to search for a different top-level
    file name when walking up with the -D, -U or -u options.

    static or shared library as an argument.
  - Speed up the internal find_file() function (used for searching
    CPPPATH, LIBPATH, etc.).
  - Add support for using the Python "in" keyword on construction
    environments (for example, if "CPPPATH" in env: ...).
  - Scan for TeX files in the paths specified in the $TEXINPUTS
    construction variable and the $TEXINPUTS environment variable.
  - Configure the PDF() and PostScript() Builders as single_source so
    they know each source file generates a separate target file.
  - Add .tex as a valid extension for the PDF() builder.
  - Add regular expressions to find \input, \include and
  - Support generating a .pdf file from a .eps source.
  - Recursive scan included input TeX files.

  - Fix Glob() so an on-disk file or directory beginning with '#'
    doesn't throw an exception.

- updated to 1.1.0

  - Use the specified environment when checking for the GCC compiler
  - Fix Glob() polluting LIBPATH by returning copy of list
  - Add CheckCC, CheckCXX, CheckSHCC and CheckSHCXX tests to

  - Add scanning Windows resource (.rc) files for implicit dependencies.
  - When scanning for a #include file, don't use a directory that
    has the same name as the file.
  - Suppress error output when checking for the GCC compiler version.
  - Fix VariantDir duplication of #included files in subdirectories.
  - Reduce memory usage when a directory is used as a dependency of
    another Node (such as an Alias) by returning a concatenation
    of the children's signatures + names, not the children's contents,
    as the directory contents.
  - Raise AttributeError, not KeyError, when a Builder can't be found.
  - Invalidate cached Node information (such as the contenst returned
    by the get_contents() method) when calling actions with Execute().
  - Avoid object reference cycles from frame objects.
  - Reduce memory usage from Null Executor objects.
  - Compute MD5 checksums of large files without reading the entire
    file contents into memory.  Add a new --md5-chunksize option to
    control the size of each chunk read into memory.
  - Fix the ability of the add_src_builder() method to add a new
    source builder to any other builder.
  - Avoid an infinite loop on non-Windows systems trying to find the
    SCons library directory if the Python library directory does not
    begin with the string "python".

    no version number) after "scons-local-{VERSION}".
  - Fix the user's ability to interrupt the TeX build chain.
  - Fix the TeX builder's allowing the user to specify the target name,
    instead of always using its default output name based on the source.
  - Iterate building TeX output files until all warning are gone
    and the auxiliary files stop changing, or until we reach the
    (configurable) maximum number of retries.
  - Add TeX scanner support for:  glossaries, nomenclatures, lists of
    figures, lists of tables, hyperref and beamer.
  - Use the $BIBINPUTS, $BSTINPUTS, $TEXINPUTS and $TEXPICTS construction
    variables as search paths for the relevant types of input file.
  - Fix building TeX with VariantDir(duplicate=0) in effect.
  - Fix the LaTeX scanner to search for graphics on the TEXINPUTS path.
  - Have the PDFLaTeX scanner search for .gif files as well.
  - Fix typos and format bugs in the man page.
  - Add a first draft of a wrapper module for Python's subprocess
  - Refactor use of the SCons.compat module so other modules don't
    have to import it individually.
  - Add .sx as a suffix for assembly language files that use the
    C preprocessor.
  - Make Glob() sort the returned list of Files or Nodes
    to prevent spurious rebuilds.
  - Add a delete_existing keyword argument to the AppendENVPath()
    and PrependENVPath() Environment methods.
  - Add ability to use "$SOURCE" when specifying a target to a builder
  - Add a test case to verify that SConsignFile() files can be
    created in previously non-existent subdirectories.
  - Make the subdirectory in which the SConsignFile() file will
    live, if the subdirectory doesn't already exist.
  - Add a test to verify duplication of files in VariantDir subdirectories.
