Well, part right.
It is ancient, but the author has stated on a number of occasions in
the not too distant past that a new version would be released "next
But the author has also said most recently that he has no interest D1
any more and D2 changes too fast.
So I'm not sure where that leaves Bud.

On the other hand the author of DSSS has said he won't have much time
for it either, now that he's in grad school.  And he hasn't responded
to questions about the speed issues with the most recent DSSS release.

So... I think maybe it's a difficult choice between the two build
tools right now.  May be a good time to give SCONS a look.  :-)
