Subject Re: Build dependencies issue with 1.4.1
Date Mon, 06 May 2013 16:09:12 GMT
Sorry for the delayed response, I thought I had seen a reply to this already.

The likely changes I can see would be:

I don't think this was intentional though - could you file an issue?

Continuum 1.4 put quite a bit more emphasis on distributed build. Have you tried using that?
Even if it runs on the same server, you might like to try setting up some build agents - the
grouping they afford gives much more capability than the parallel build option does.

B and B compiled much faster than C.
