SBuild is a Scala-based build system. It features platform independence, multi project support, automatic detection of needed actions, automatic up-to-date detection, a flexible scheme handler mechanism, Maven repository support, Ant task integration, automatic cross-project resolving of dependencies, high speed, a simple "syntax" that requires almost no Scala knowledge, behind-the-sceens compilation of build script to bytecode for fast execution time, and built-in scheme handlers for HTTP and Maven.

New features and speed improvements. Up-to-date state calculation of phony targets is now based on (virtual) lastModified timestamps, which can be overridden in a target via TargetContext. Phony targets can now be cached; SBuild will not reexecute them if the dependencies or the project file did not change. Additional files can be attached to targets. Empty phony targets will automatically attach all files of their dependencies and last but not least, the SBuild comand line has been improved. Essential information is highlighted with colors, and error message output has been enhanced
