Release Notes:

+ Automatic code cleanup. (#18417)
+ Update CODEOWNERS for 6.3.0 (#18369)
+ Overrides specified by non-root modules no longer cause an error, and are silently ignored instead. They were originally treated as an error to allow for the future possibility of overrides in the transitive dependency graph working together; but we've deemed that infeasible (and even if it was, it'd be so complicated and confusing to users that it would not be a good addition). (#18388)
+ Add implementation deps support for Objective-C (#18372)

   + 6c393ec5539b34e9708b43b0145488b9df1c0878:
     Add temporary rules_go bazel_dep to restore CI

Incompatible changes:

  • Loading .bzl files under @bazel_tools//tools/jdk in WORKSPACE now requires rules_java to be defined in advance.
  • cc_binary targets with dynamic_deps attributes no longer link indirect dynamic_deps on Unix. This might be an incompatible change if you are using RUNPATHs (instead of RPATHs) in your cc_shared_libraries. Enable the feature “exclude_bazel_rpaths_in_transitive_libs” or “use_rpath_instead_of_runpath” for those cc_shared_libraries.

Important changes:

  • Add aquery --output=streamed_proto which writes a stream of length delimited ActionGraphContainer containing a single Artifact, Action, Target, DepSetOfFiles, Configuration, AspectDescriptor, RuleClass, PathFragment proto. This breaks up the ActionGraphContainer into multiple which will prevent large protos from crashing blaze.
  • (BEP) TargetConfigured events will be marked aborted instead of published when there is an analysis error. This is motivated by a low level Blaze change aimed at improving scalability.
  • Add flag --experimental_collect_code_coverage_for_generated_files.
  • Added a new output format for cquery --output=streamed_proto that writes multiple length-delimited CqueryResult protos, each containing a single ConfiguredTarget or Configuration. This allows us to “bypass” the hard limit of 2GB on the size of protocol buffers by splitting it up into multiple.
  • Enable starlark_doc_extract - a native rule for Starlark documentation extraction. This rule is intended mainly for internal use by Stardoc.

     00a4fefe594069d47d1bde99b28c6b8dcca0a7c1.

Incompatible changes:

  • --incompatible_check_sharding_support is enabled by default. Sharded tests with test runners that do not properly advertise support for test sharding will fail. Refer to https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/18339 for migration advice.

Important changes:

  • Options specified on the pseudo-command common in .rc files are now ignored by commands that do not support them as long as they are valid options for any Bazel command. Previously, commands that did not support all options given for common would fail to run. These previous semantics of common are now available via the new always pseudo-command.
  • the ‘default’ param of json.decode can now be used as a keyword parameter.
  • As a transitional step in a larger refactoring, rule transitions are applied twice. Once during dependency resolution and once right before analysis of those rules. After the refactoring is complete, rule transitions will be applied only once.

     Fix non-determinism in the `FailureDetail` produced for a
     package with multiple label crosses subpackage boundary errors.

Incompatible changes:

  • This has the side effect of changing the message on unsuccessful builds from
    FAILED: Build did NOT complete successfully (0 packages loaded)
    
    to
    ERROR: Build did NOT complete successfully
    
  • Bazel no longer increases the delay between progress updates when there is no cursor control.
  • This has the side effect of changing the message on unsuccessful builds from
    FAILED: Build did NOT complete successfully (0 packages loaded)
    
    to
    ERROR: Build did NOT complete successfully
    
  • the --experimental_async_execution flag is now a no-op.
  • --experimental_replay_action_out_err is not a no-op.
  • cquery --output=files also outputs source files.
  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.
  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.
  • --incompatible_always_include_files_in_data is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16654 for details.
  • This changes the behavior of Python version in exec/host configuration. Mitigation is to set Python version on the targets.
  • When multiple --deleted_packages options are passed on the command line, they will be concatenated instead of the latest one taking effect.
  • This has the side effect of changing the message on unsuccessful builds from
  • JSON profile: Use doubles instead of strings for counter series.
  • query --output=proto --order_output=deps now returns targets in topological order (previously there was no ordering).
  • --experimental_build_transitive_python_runfiles is flipped to false. See #16303 for details
  • --incompatible_python_disable_py2 is flipped to true. See #17293 for details.
  • When remote cache evicts blobs, Bazel will exit with code 39.
  • --features only applies to targets built in the target configuration, and --host_features is used for the host / exec configuration (gated behind --incompatible_use_host_features)
  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.
  • Bazel's local CPU resource on Linux is now container aware. Use --local_cpu_resources, --loading_phase_threads or --jobs to override.
  • copy_from_rule is exec_groups is deprecated (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/17668).
  • --legacy_bazel_java_test is now a no-op
  • --legacy_bazel_java_test is now a no-op
  • --legacy_bazel_java_test is now a no-op
  • --experimental_execution_graph_log no longer exists. Current users that want local logs need to pass --experimental_enable_execution_graph_log --experimental_execution_graph_log_path=/some/local/path. Current users that want logs uploaded to BEP need to pass --experimental_enable_execution_graph_log --experimental_stream_log_file_uploads.
  • Remove ‘darwin’ as a CPU value, use ‘darwin_x86_64’ instead
  • Remove high priority workers functionality from blaze.
  • Renamed PackageMetrics proto message to PackageLoadMetrics. The formats should be wire compatible.

New features:

  • The aquery and cquery commands now respect the --query_file flag just like the query command.
  • --experimental_repository_disable_download is now promoted to stable and is also available under the name --repository_disable_download .

Important changes:

  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).
  • Starlark print() statements are now emitted iff the line of code is executed. They are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the Starlark code is re-executed. Additionally, multiple identical print() statements (same string from the same line of code, e.g. from a loop) are all emitted and no longer deduplicated.
  • Fixes a bug where some compilation flags would not be applied to a cc_test
  • removed outdated ctx.host_fragments
  • removed outdated ctx.host_configuration
  • Now that the host configuration is finished, genrule should prefer the use of tools and stop using exec_tools.
  • Added a native.package_relative_label() function, which converts a label string to a Label object in the context of the calling package, in contrast to Label(), which does so in the context of the current .bzl file. Both functions now also accept relative labels such as :foo, and are idempotent.
  • Update Android manifest merger to v30.1.3, and also drop support for legacy (pre-D8) desugaring.
  • Adds coverage metric support to android_local_test
  • Correctly encode double value positive infinity as “inf” instead of “+inf” for textprotos.
  • Add --use_target_platform_for_tests which uses the target platform for executing tests instead of the execution platform.
  • Custom C++ rules on Windows calling cc_common.create_linking_context_from_compilation_outputs should review whether each target of the rule type should produce a dynamic library since a condition which blocked their creation has been moved to the rules from behind the API.
  • Add flag --experimental_remote_cache_ttl and set the default value to 3 hours.
  • making --incompatible_use_platforms_repo_for_constraints do nothing. Using constraints from @bazel_tools//platforms with or without the flag will throw error with message “Constraints from @bazel_tools//platforms have been removed. Please use constraints from @platforms repository embedded in Bazel, or preferably declare dependency on https://github.com/bazelbuild/platforms
  • Fixed an issue where WORKSPACE and WORKSPACE-loaded .bzl files couldn‘t see the Bzlmod root module’s mappings when Bzlmod is enabled.
  • Subsequent settings of --extra_execution_platforms now override previous settings, instead of adding them to a list. If you currently set --extra_execution_platforms more than once, please migrate by passing a list of values to --extra_execution_platforms instead so that earlier values aren't overwritten.
  • @bazel_tools//config:common_settings.bzl has been removed. Use @bazel_skylib//rules:common_settings.bzl instead.
  • cc_shared_library is no longer experimental, see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16709 for details
  • The flag --distinct_host_configuration is removed. It has been a no-op since Bazel 6.0.0.
  • Added native.module_name() and native.module_version() to allow BUILD macro authors to acquire information about which Bazel module the current repo is associated with.
  • Add --skip_incompatible_explicit_targets option
  • Remove ‘darwin’ as a CPU value, use ‘darwin_x86_64’ instead
  • cc_test can now be configured by using a native.toolchain().
  • @foo labels can now be used on the command line as the top-level target (that is, bazel build @foo now works). Double-dot syntax is now forbidden (bazel build ../foo will no longer work).
  • The location of rules that explicitly specify generator_name and/or generator_function attributes (typically because they are incidentally copied from native.existing_rule()) is now the top-level call in the BUILD file, which is consistent with rules that do not explicitly specify these attributes.
  • Warnings (most notably those associated with the deprecation rule attribute) are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the target in question is re-analyzed. Warnings are purely informational, so this change has no bearing on the correctness of the build. Downstream tests that break due to this change should update their expectations.
  • --experimental_remote_build_event_upload has been renamed to --remote_build_event_upload
  • [Breaking change] platform, constraint_setting, and constraint_value can no longer take an applicable_licenses value. Remediation is to remove the attribute and rely on the package level default.
  • --experimental_action_cache_store_output_metadata has been renamed to --action_cache_store_output_metadata
  • Changed the default value for --remote_build_event_upload to minimal.
  • --experimental_remote_cache_compression has been renamed to --remote_cache_compression
  • The REPO.bazel and MODULE.bazel files are now also considered workspace boundary markers.
  • Added a new max_compatibility_level attribute to the bazel_dep directive, which allows version selection to upgrade a dependency up to the specified compatibility level.
  • --experimental_remote_grpc_log has been renamed to --remote_grpc_log
  • --incompatible_remote_build_event_upload_respect_no_cache is now a no-op.
  • json.decode now takes an optional default positional parameter; if this parameter is specified and decoding fails, json.decode will return the default value instead of failing Starlark evaluation.
  • Overrides specified by non-root modules no longer cause an error, and are silently ignored instead. They were originally treated as an error to allow for the future possibility of overrides in the transitive dependency graph working together; but we‘ve deemed that infeasible (and even if it was, it’d be so complicated and confusing to users that it would not be a good addition).
  • applicable_licenses is no longer allowed on the platform rule. Additionally, default_package_metadata from any package rule will not be applied.

Incompatible changes:

  • Bazel no longer increases the delay between progress updates when there is no cursor control.

  • --incompatible_always_include_files_in_data is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16654 for details.

  • cquery --output=files also outputs source files.

    Closes #16602.

  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.

  • This changes the behavior of Python version in exec/host configuration. Mitigation is to set Python version on the targets.

  • --features only applies to targets built in the target configuration, and --host_features is used for the host / exec configuration (gated behind --incompatible_use_host_features)

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13839

    Closes #16626.

New features:

  • The aquery and cquery commands now respect the --query_file flag just like the query command.

Important changes:

  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).

    Work towards #16124 Fixes #10923

    Closes #16428.

  • Starlark print() statements are now emitted iff the line of code is executed. They are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the Starlark code is re-executed. Additionally, multiple identical print() statements (same string from the same line of code, e.g. from a loop) are all emitted and no longer deduplicated.

  • Fixes a bug where some compilation flags would not be applied to a cc_test

  • Added a native.package_relative_label() function, which converts a label string to a Label object in the context of the calling package, in contrast to Label(), which does so in the context of the current .bzl file. Both functions now also accept relative labels such as :foo, and are idempotent.

  • Adds coverage metric support to android_local_test

  • Fixed an issue where WORKSPACE and WORKSPACE-loaded .bzl files couldn‘t see the Bzlmod root module’s mappings when Bzlmod is enabled.

  • Added native.module_name() and native.module_version() to allow BUILD macro authors to acquire information about which Bazel module the current repo is associated with.

  • @foo labels can now be used on the command line as the top-level target (that is, bazel build @foo now works). Double-dot syntax is now forbidden (bazel build ../foo will no longer work).

  • Added preliminary support for a lockfile for Bzlmod. It's disabled by default; use --lockfile_mode=update to enable it. This lockfile contains only Bazel module information; it does not involve module extensions.

  • Added a new max_compatibility_level attribute to the bazel_dep directive, which allows version selection to upgrade a dependency up to the specified compatibility level.

  • --experimental_remote_grpc_log has been renamed to --remote_grpc_log

Release 7.0.0-pre.20230417.1 (2023-04-25)

Baseline: 0a47a1fb04efef598376d4ee7b383add1febcc6c

Incompatible changes:

  • Removing java_common.javac_jar Starlark call.
  • native.existing_rule now returns select values in a form that is accepted by rule instantiation. This is a breaking API change because there is some code that relies on the precise type returned, including brittle workarounds for this bug specifically and insufficiently flexible workarounds for other issues with the intersection of select and native.existing_rule.
  • flipped incompatible_use_toolchain_resolution_for_java_rules, see #7849
  • Query output=xml/proto/location for source files will now show the location of line 1 of the source file (as the new default) instead of its location in the BUILD file.
  • Specifying a target pattern underneath a directory specified by .bazelignore will now emit a warning, not an error.
  • Query --order_output=auto will now sort lexicographically. However, when somepath is used as a top level function (e.g. query 'somepath(a, b)'), it will continue to output in dependency order. If you do not want the lexicographical output ordering, specify another --order_output value (no, deps or full) based on what ordering you require.
  • In the build event stream, BuildMetrics.TargetMetrics.targets_loaded is no longer populated. Its value was always mostly meaningless. BuildMetrics.TargetMetrics.targets_configured and BuildMetrics.ActionSummary.actions_created now include configured aspect data.
  • //visibility:legacy_public has been removed.
  • Flip and remove incompatible_dont_collect_so_artifacts (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13043).
  • Remove flag --experimental_no_product_name_out_symlink: it is always true.
  • The Starlark method generate_dsym in objc fragment has been deleted. Please use the equivalent apple_generate_dsym in cpp fragment instead.
  • Native libraries in data attribute are not collected. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13550 for details
  • Enforce the --profile path to be absolute.
  • Enforce the --memory_profile path to be absolute.
  • JavaToolchainInfo.jvm_opt returns Depset instead of a list.
  • --apple_sdk has been deleted. It is a no-op.
  • --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build is now a no-op and will be deleted in a future release. Use --memory_profile=/dev/null instead.
  • Flipped --incompatible_disallow_resource_jars (see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13221).
  • Remove --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build
  • JSON trace profile: rename counter names.
  • Removed --action_graph from the dump command.
  • Remove --{experimental_,}json_trace_compression option.
  • Remove --experimental_profile_cpu_usage.
  • flipped --incompatible_java_common_parameters (see #12373)
  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since the path would refer to a netrc file inside the external repository by absolute path. Migration should be straightforward.
  • genrule switched to use exec transition instead of host. This can break targets with hardcoded output paths. To avoid using hardcoded paths use make variables, see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/4.2.2/be/make-variables.html#pre defined_label_variables
  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since...

  • The --incompatible_existing_rules_immutable_view flag has been flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13907 for migration notes.
  • Split up the C++ archive from the C++ link action and set CppArchive as mnemonic.
  • workspace(managed_directories=) is not available anymore.
  • --legacy_important_outputs now has a default of false.
  • --legacy_important_outputs default reverted to true.
  • objc_library now requires CcInfo in its deps. If this breaks you, add empty CcInfo() to your rule.
  • Flag --experimental_local_memory_estimate removed.
  • Added a new flag --incompatible_unambiguous_label_stringification, which causes labels in the main repo to stringify into unambiguous forms starting with an @. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/15916 for more information.
  • analysis_test moved into testing.analysis_test

  • --incompatible_remote_downloader_send_all_headers is flipped to true. See #16356 for details.
  • GrpcRemoteDownloader only includes relevant headers instead of sending all credentials.
  • In package_group's packages attribute, the syntax “//...” now refers to all packages in the same repository as the package group, rather than all packages everywhere. The new item “public” can be used instead to obtain the old behavior. In bazel query --output=proto (and --output=xml), the packages attribute now serializes with the leading double slash included (for instance, //foo/bar/... instead of foo/bar/...). See also #16355, #16323, and #16391.
  • This has the side effect of changing the message on unsuccessful builds from

  • This changes the behavior of Python version in exec/host configuration. Mitigation is to set Python version on the targets.
  • When multiple --deleted_packages options are passed on the command line, they will be concatenated instead of the latest one taking effect.
  • This has the side effect of changing the message on unsuccessful builds from
  • JSON profile: Use doubles instead of strings for counter series.
  • query --output=proto --order_output=deps now returns targets in topological order (previously there was no ordering).
  • --experimental_build_transitive_python_runfiles is flipped to false. See #16303 for details
  • --incompatible_python_disable_py2 is flipped to true. See #17293 for details.
  • When remote cache evicts blobs, Bazel will exit with code 39.
  • --features only applies to targets built in the target configuration, and --host_features is used for the host / exec configuration (gated behind --incompatible_use_host_features)
  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.
  • Bazel's local CPU resource on Linux is now container aware. Use --local_cpu_resources, --loading_phase_threads or --jobs to override.
  • copy_from_rule is exec_groups is deprecated (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/17668).
  • --legacy_bazel_java_test is now a no-op
  • --legacy_bazel_java_test is now a no-op
  • --legacy_bazel_java_test is now a no-op
  • --experimental_execution_graph_log no longer exists.

Current users that want logs uploaded to BEP need to pass --experimental_enable_execution_graph_log --experimental_stream_log_file_uploads.
  • Remove ‘darwin’ as a CPU value, use ‘darwin_x86_64’ instead
  • Remove high priority workers functionality from blaze.

New features:

  • Args.add_all and Args.add_joined can now accept closures in map_each if explicitly enabled via allow_closure.
  • Add --bes_header flag to pass extra headers to the BES server.
  • Support local_repository in Bazel Registry's source.json file
  • The aquery and cquery commands now respect the --query_file flag just like the query command.

Important changes:

  • The --incompatible_load_python_rules_from_bzl flag is now a no-op.
  • Filter all (instead of just C++) source files for coverage output according to --instrumentation_filter and --instrument_test_targets.
  • The --incompatible_disable_native_apple_binary_rule flag has been added which disables the native apple_binary rule. Users who need to use apple_binary directly (if they cannot use one of the more specific Apple rules) should load it from https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_apple.
  • The Android rules' --use_singlejar_apkbuilder is now a no-op. SingleJar will always be used to build APKs.
  • dict.setdefault(key, ...) now fails if dict is frozen, even if it already contains key. This is an incompatible API change.
  • Flag --incompatible_objc_provider_remove_compile_info is removed. See #11359.
  • Starlark now permits def statements to be nested (closures).
  • native.existing_rule now returns select values in a form that is accepted by rule instantiation. This is a breaking API change, though the fallout is expected to be small.
  • Starlark now supports lambda (anonymous function) expressions.
  • The “test” and “coverage” commands no longer return 3 when a test action fails because of a system error. Instead, the exit code reflects the type of system error.
  • The undocumented ctx.expand feature no longer exists.
  • Make --legacy_dynamic_scheduler a no-op flag.
  • Multiplex persistent workers can now use the JSON protocol.
  • native.existing_rule now returns a mutable list, not a tuple, for a list-valued attributes. This is an incompatible API change.
  • Roll back change to have native.existing_rules use list instead of tuple.
  • BEP includes test suite expansions.
  • config_setting now honors visibility attribute (and defaults to //visibility:public)
  • Change the MultiArchSplitTransitionProvider to be based on platform type + CPU instead of fixed “ios_” + cpu.
  • enforce config_setting visibility. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/12932 for details.
  • add a flag to build v4 signature file
  • Added _direct_source_jars output group to Java related targets. END_PUBLIC
  • pkg_deb is no longer part of @bazel_tools//build_defs/pkg:pkg.bzl. Use https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_pkg/tree/main/pkg instead
  • Allowing the lipo operations to be conditional in the linkMultiArchBinary API for Apple binaries. Single architecture slices are now returned through AppleBinaryOutput and the Starlark API.
  • Release restriction for “-” in the package name for Python sources. Now py_binary and py_test targets can have main source file with “-” in the path.
  • Users consuming BEP may assume that a named_set_of_files event will appear before any event referencing that named_set by ID. This allows consumers to process the files for such events (eg. TargetCompleted) immediately.
  • BEP includes all files from successful actions in requested output groups. Previously, an output group's files were excluded if any file in the output group was not produced due to a failing action. Users can expect BEP output to be larger for failed builds.
  • In BEP, TargetComplete.output_group has a new field incomplete indicating that the file_sets field is missing one or more declared artifacts whose generating actions failed.
  • The flag --toolchain_resolution_debug now takes a regex argument, which is used to check which toolchain types should have debug info printed. You may use .* as an argument to keep the current behavior of debugging every toolchain type.
  • Add runfiles.merge_all() for merging a sequence of runfiles objects.
  • runfiles.merge() and merge_all() now respect --nested_set_depth_limit. If you hit the depth limit because you were calling merge() in a loop, use merge_all() on a sequence of runfiles objects instead.
  • Bazel will no longer create a bazel-out symlink if --symlink_prefix is specified: the directory pointed to via the bazel-out symlink is accessible via ${symlink_prefix}-out. If this causes problems for you, set --experimental_no_product_name_out_symlink=false in your builds and file an issue.
  • Updates worker protocol with cancellation fields, and adds experimental_worker_cancellation flag to control cancellation.
  • Simplify build failure output by always using NNN arguments.
  • trim_test_configuration now defaults to on
  • Mark genrule.srcs as a source attribute for coverage.
  • When using --allow_analysis_failures (for example, via bazel-skylib's analysistest with expect_failure = True), analysis-time failures in aspect implementation functions will now be propagated and saved in AnalysisFailureInfo, just like analysis-time failures in rules.
  • cquery --noimplicit_deps now correctly filters out resolved cc_toolchains
  • Sign apks deterministically.
  • Make gcov optional in cc_toolchain tools.
  • If --experimental_prefer_mutual_xcode is passed, Bazel will choose the local default (instead of the newest mutually available version) if it's available both locally and remotely.
  • Remove java_lite_proto_library.strict_deps attribute.
  • Generate proguard configurations deterministically.
  • Adds a new flag, --incompatible_enable_cc_test_feature which switches from the use of build variables to the feature of the same name.
  • Dropped fragile xz support from built in pkg_tar. Users requiring xz compression should switch to bazlebuild/rules_pkg.
  • If all strategies of one branch (the local or remote execution branch) of the dynamic strategy fail to even accept (via the response they give from canExec) the action, dynamic will now try to see if the other branch can accept it. (Trying to run it and it failing will still cause a failure if it was the first result, this is about strategies claiming they can't even try the action)
  • Add disable_annotation_processing option to java_common.compile, which disables any annotation processors passed to plugins or in exported_plugins of deps
  • Remove obsolete --incompatible_prohibit_aapt1
  • The minimum Android build tools version for the Android rules is now 30.0.0
  • Adds --experimental_reuse_sandbox_directories flag to reuse already-created non-worker sandboxes with cleanup.
  • --experimental_force_gc_after_build is deprecated and will be removed soon. Use --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build instead
  • Forward coverage-instrumented files from non-tool dependencies by default.
  • The used_heap_size_post_build field in BEP is populated when the --memory_profile flag is set
  • --run_validations defaults to true.
  • Consider label_keyed_string_dict attributes when gathering instrumented files for coverage.
  • Remove flag --experimental_forward_instrumented_files_info_by_default, now that this behavior is the default.
  • When using MemoryProfiler with multiple GCs via the --memory_profile_stable_heap_parameters flag, we do a more precise calculation of heap used at the end of the build. This will generally result in lower values.
  • --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build is deprecated. Use --memory_profile=/dev/null instead.
  • Disable --all_incompatible_changes flag.
  • The --all_incompatible_changes flag is now a no-op
  • The --toolchain_resolution_debug flag now accepts regexes matching targets, as well as toolchain types, when choosing what debug messages to print.
  • Adds --experimental_existing_rules_immutable_view flag to make the native.existing_rule and native.existing_rules functions more efficient by returning immutable, lightweight dict-like view objects instead of mutable dicts.
  • Add support to length-delimited protos as undeclared output annotations []
  • The deprecated “relative_to_caller_repository” parameter has been removed from the Label constructor.
  • The toolchain transition is now enabled for all toolchains.
  • incompatible_disable_depset_items is flipped
  • The --experimental_existing_rules_immutable_view flag has been renamed to --incompatible_existing_rules_immutable_view
  • Bazel no longer supports Java 8. From this version on, the minimum required JDK is OpenJDK 11.
  • Deprecate --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag, in preparation for removal in Bazel 6.x.
  • Treat py_*.srcs_version=“PY2” the same as “PY2ONLY”.
  • The Build Event Protocol now contains file digests and sizes along with the file name and URI.
  • Refactor system suspend event handling.
  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()
  • Allow \a \b \f \v escape sequences in Starlark.
  • Match remote and local xcode version by most granular version.
  • Adds --experimental_worker_multiplex_sandboxing flag that controls whether to sandbox multiplex workers that support it.
  • provider() has a new parameter: init, a callback for performing pre-processing and validation of field values. Iff this parameter is set, provider() returns a tuple of 2 elements: the usual provider symbol (which, when called, invokes init) and a raw constructor (which bypasses init).
  • Tests that fail to create or complete their TestAttemptContinuation by throwing an ExecException will report an INCOMPLETE status. Previously, Bazel would fail to report any status for the test attempt.
  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.
  • Include more information about configurations in cquery proto formatted output. This deprecates the configuration field of AnalysisProtosV2.ConfiguredTarget, and adds a new field, configuration_id, to be used instead.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • In aquery and cquery proto output, indicate if a configuration is a tool or non-tool configuration.
  • Include complete configurations in cquery proto output.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.
  • Add some documentation about how configuration information is conveyed in cquery proto output.
  • Introduces experimental static library linking API under apple_common.link_multi_arch_static_library
  • Further deprecation and removal of pkg_tar. Stop supporting legacy use of ‘files’ attribute, where it could be a list of labels instead of a map of paths to labels.
  • Removed --incompatible_no_build_defs_pkg flag. It never fulfilled its purpose because --all_incompatible_changes would never set it. The last rule it gated (pkg_tar) is scheduled to be removed in Bazel 6.x.
  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.
  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).
  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.
  • The default dexer is now d8. dx can be optionally enabled using: --define=android_dexmerger_tool=dx_dexmerger
    --define=android_incremental_dexing_tool=dx_dexbuilder
    --define=android_standalone_dexing_tool=dx_compat_dx
    --use_workers_with_dexbuilder
  • Packaging support for deploy JAR embedded JDK files (hermetic Java).
  • Don't stamp cc_common.link actions for tool dependencies.
  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.
  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.
  • Allow specialization to work with constraint_values.
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • Make ijar / java_import preserve classes with @kotlin.Metadata annotations
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Add devtools/build/lib/worker:work_request_handlers to the remote android tools release package. This will be transitively packaged into all_android_tools.
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.
  • Advance android_tools_pkg version to 0.24.0.
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • “blaze config” now only reports info from the last build. To compare configurations across multiple builds, redirect “blaze config” output to a file and run your favorite diff tool.
  • The --incompatible_override_toolchain_transition flag is now always set, and will be removed in the future. Thus, --noincompatible_override_toolchain_transition has no effect, and the value of the incompatible_use_toolchain_transition parameter in aspect() and rule() builtins is ignored.
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Toolchain types may now be optional, in addition to mandatory. See https://bazel.build/docs/toolchains#optional-toolchains for further details.
  • Add six to deps of has_services=1 py_proto_librarys.
  • pkg_tar(symlinks) has been removed. Users needing that feature should migrate to @rules_pkg.
  • Aspects can now define and use exec groups using the same API as rules.
  • Removed the obsolete --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag. The feature is permanently enabled.
  • embedded_tools packages R8 desugarer again
  • Bazel now selects sh path based on execution platform instead of host platform, making it possible to execute sh actions in multiplatform builds. --shell_executable now only applies to actions configured for host.
  • labels in genquery.scope are no longer configured.
  • When Bzlmod is enabled, all Bzlmod-generated repos will have an extra ‘@’ prepended to their names. This effectively enables the canonical label literal syntax for Bzlmod-generated repos (@@canonicalRepoName//pkg:target; see https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N81qfCa8oskCk5LqTW-LNthy6EBrDo t7bdUsjz6JFC4/edit?usp=sharing).
  • Exposed CcSharedLibraryInfo to Starlark builtins.
  • Enable --use_top_level_targets_for_symlinks by default.
  • Singlejar accepts runtime Created-By field
  • --noincompatible_disable_managed_directories, and with that, workspace(managed_directories=) is not supported anymore.
  • Bazel supports D8 desugaring, albeit without persistent workers
  • Remove mtime options from pkg_tar. Users should migrate to @rules_pkg.
  • Test for experimental multiplexed persistent resource processor.
  • Added new register_{execution_platforms,toolchains} directives to the MODULE.bazel file, to replace the {execution_platforms,toolchains}_to_register attributes on the module() directive.
  • The legacy pkg_tar no longer supports the ability to untar and repackage an input tar file (deps attribute). Users needed that capability must switch to github.com/bazelbuild/rules_pkg.
  • cquery's new output mode --output=files lists the output files of the targets matching the query. It takes the current value of --output_groups into account.
  • Change singlejar metadata to report Created-By Bazel
  • Add support for fetching RPC credentials from credential helper.
  • Revert interface_deps back to implementation_deps after problem reported in. Use buildozer 'rename deps implementation_deps' //...:%cc_library; buildozer 'rename interface_deps deps' //...:%cc_library
  • Fix for desugaring failure on Bazel+Android+Windows build scenario.
  • D8 is the default desugarer
  • Migrate main_dex_list_creator to D8 (DX deprecation)
  • --experimental_enable_bzlmod has been renamed --enable_bzlmod, and still defaults to false.
  • selects() no longer produce irrelevant duplicate label checks
  • Adds a dexer output cache to CompatDexBuilder to improve build speed.
  • Improved error messages when analyzing inline bzl code
  • Improved error messages when analyzing inline bzl code
  • The @bazel_tools//tools/cpp:compiler flag now has the value gcc if the configured compiler is detected to be gcc rather than the generic value compiler. A branch for gcc may have to be added to select statements that do not have a default case that handles gcc appropriately.
  • The get_child method of path now accepts an arbitrary number of relative path strings as positional arguments.
  • SourceManifestAction supports Action.content
  • Add --incompatible_build_transitive_python_runfiles alias. See #16303
  • The @bazel_tools//tools/cpp:compiler flag now has the value clang for the auto-configured Xcode toolchain rather than the generic value compiler. A branch for clang may have to be added to select statements that do not have a default case that handles this toolchain appropriately.
  • added additional debug message to warn of skipped toolchains during resolution
  • The deprecated --remote_allow_symlink_upload flag has been removed. Symlinks in local action outputs are always permitted, even with remote caching. Whether they're uploaded as symlinks or as the files/directories they point to is still determined by the --incompatible_remote_symlinks flag.
  • Added struct, json, proto, and depset to the starlark environment of Bazel's cquery (--output=starlark) command
  • Added three package_group-related flags: --incompatible_package_group_includes_double_slash (#16391), --incompatible_package_group_has_public_syntax (#16355), and --incompatible_fix_package_group_reporoot_syntax (#16323). With these flags, package_group can now easily specify “all packages”, “no packages”, and “all packages in the current repo”.
  • Record hermetic packaged JDK modules file size in deploy JAR manifest ‘JDK-Lib-Modules-Size’ attribute.
  • .bzl files may now set a visibility to guard what other .bzl and BUILD files may load them. See [...] for more information.
  • Deletes the --extra_proguard_specs Blaze flag
  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).
  • Starlark print() statements are now emitted iff the line of code is executed. They are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the Starlark code is re-executed. Additionally, multiple identical print() statements (same string from the same line of code, e.g. from a loop) are all emitted and no longer deduplicated.
  • Fixes a bug where some compilation flags would not be applied to a cc_test
  • removed outdated ctx.host_fragments
  • removed outdated ctx.host_configuration
  • Now that the host configuration is finished, genrule should prefer the use of tools and stop using exec_tools.
  • Added a native.package_relative_label() function, which converts a label string to a Label object in the context of the calling package, in contrast to Label(), which does so in the context of the current .bzl file. Both functions now also accept relative labels such as :foo, and are idempotent.
  • Update Android manifest merger to v30.1.3, and also drop support for legacy (pre-D8) desugaring.
  • Adds coverage metric support to android_local_test
  • Correctly encode double value positive infinity as “inf” instead of “+inf” for textprotos.
  • Add --use_target_platform_for_tests which uses the target platform for executing tests instead of the execution platform.
  • Custom C++ rules on Windows calling cc_common.create_linking_context_from_compilation_outputs should review whether each target of the rule type should produce a dynamic library since a condition which blocked their creation has been moved to the rules from behind the API.
  • Add flag --experimental_remote_cache_ttl and set the default value to 3 hours.
  • making --incompatible_use_platforms_repo_for_constraints do nothing. Using constraints from @bazel_tools//platforms with or without the flag will throw error with message “Constraints from @bazel_tools//platforms have been removed. Please use constraints from @platforms repository embedded in Bazel, or preferably declare dependency on https://github.com/bazelbuild/platforms
  • Fixed an issue where WORKSPACE and WORKSPACE-loaded .bzl files couldn‘t see the Bzlmod root module’s mappings when Bzlmod is enabled.
  • Subsequent settings of --extra_execution_platforms now override previous settings, instead of adding them to a list. If you currently set --extra_execution_platforms more than once, please migrate by passing a list of values to --extra_execution_platforms instead so that earlier values aren't overwritten.
  • @bazel_tools//config:common_settings.bzl has been removed. Use @bazel_skylib//rules:common_settings.bzl instead.
  • cc_shared_library is no longer experimental, see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16709 for details
  • The flag --distinct_host_configuration is removed. It has been a no-op since Bazel 6.0.0.
  • Added native.module_name() and native.module_version() to allow BUILD macro authors to acquire information about which Bazel module the current repo is associated with.
  • Add --skip_incompatible_explicit_targets option
  • Remove ‘darwin’ as a CPU value, use ‘darwin_x86_64’ instead
  • cc_test can now be configured by using a native.toolchain().
  • @foo labels can now be used on the command line as the top-level target (that is, bazel build @foo now works). Double-dot syntax is now forbidden (bazel build ../foo will no longer work).
  • The location of rules that explicitly specify generator_name and/or generator_function attributes (typically because they are incidentally copied from native.existing_rule()) is now the top-level call in the BUILD file, which is consistent with rules that do not explicitly specify these attributes.
  • Warnings (most notably those associated with the deprecation rule attribute) are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the target in question is re-analyzed. Warnings are purely informational, so this change has no bearing on the correctness of the build. Downstream tests that break due to this change should update their expectations.
  • --experimental_remote_build_event_upload has been renamed to --remote_build_event_upload
  • [Breaking change] platform, constraint_setting, and constraint_value can no longer take an applicable_licenses value. Remediation is to remove the attribute and rely on the package level default.
  • --experimental_action_cache_store_output_metadata has been renamed to --action_cache_store_output_metadata
  • Changed the default value for --remote_build_event_upload to minimal.
  • --experimental_remote_cache_compression has been renamed to --remote_cache_compression
  • The REPO.bazel and MODULE.bazel files are now also considered workspace boundary markers.

Cherry picks:

   + a689d673abadf80f1efaf8ddaeee92d56fc2847b:
     Use getRunfilesPath for run_under executable path generation.
     getRootRelativePath doesn't return a valid runfiles path for
     external source files anymore after the recent external source
     root change. Also, it won't work for external labels either once
     the --nolegacy_external_runfiles becomes default. This fixes
     issue #12545.

     Fix builds for filegroup targets with incompatible dependencies
   + e43825d0bef359f645e1cabf2164fd2db6ee4a35:
     Revert "Remove
     --incompatible_blacklisted_protos_requires_proto_info"
   + 082d58de852ebaa640bcf13cf419cbb94eec2b26:
     Transform roots along with paths during output deletion.
   + e8835c1c221d76a2d5532d18083eaa04401619b3:
     AttributeContainer.Large now handles more than 127 attributes.
   + e1e87349335ac59f9b3df47cee8b999faeaa6d11:
     Add an env attribute to all test and binary rule classes

     Pass --host_action_env to host options hostActionEnvironment
     attribute
   + 07400c0392e7be163f8a3396fa5cf89ce6705412:
     Add --{no,}autodetect_server_javabase.
   + c83366064621d5a265eba14d93a03deff58fe6d8:
     Only treat "env" and "env_inherit" attrs specially for native
     rules
   + 6a60b30cd0f22d0ab84b2ddd658d5ccb899a8a76:
     Fix coverage support when using default_java_toolchain. (#12801)

  • enforce config_setting visibility. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/12932 for details.
  • The minimum Android build tools version for the Android rules is now 30.0.0
  • Updates worker protocol with cancellation fields, and adds experimental_worker_cancellation flag to control cancellation.
  • If all strategies of one branch (the local or remote execution branch) of the dynamic strategy fail to even accept (via the response they give from canExec) the action, dynamic will now try to see if the other branch can accept it. (Trying to run it and it failing will still cause a failure if it was the first result, this is about strategies claiming they can't even try the action)

     [5.4.1] Disable failing tests (#18123)

Incompatible changes:

  • GrpcRemoteDownloader only includes relevant headers instead of sending all credentials.

    Closes #16439.

  • analysis_test moved into testing.analysis_test

Important changes:

  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13047.

    Closes #14310.

  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.

  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.

  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.

  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).

    Closes #14971.

  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.

    Closes #14849.

  • none RELNOTES:none

  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.

  • Added new register_{execution_platforms,toolchains} directives to the MODULE.bazel file, to replace the {execution_platforms,toolchains}_to_register attributes on the module() directive.

  • Add support for fetching RPC credentials from credential helper.

    Progress on https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/15856

    Closes #15947.

  • cquery's new output mode --output=files lists the output files of the targets matching the query. It takes the current value of --output_groups into account.

    Closes #15552.

  • Fix for desugaring failure on Bazel+Android+Windows build scenario.

  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).

    Work towards #16124 Fixes #10923

    Closes #16667.

     Use ctime in file digest cache key (#18101)

Incompatible changes:

  • Bazel no longer increases the delay between progress updates when there is no cursor control.

  • --incompatible_always_include_files_in_data is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16654 for details.

  • cquery --output=files also outputs source files.

    Closes #16602.

  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.

  • This changes the behavior of Python version in exec/host configuration. Mitigation is to set Python version on the targets.

  • --features only applies to targets built in the target configuration, and --host_features is used for the host / exec configuration (gated behind --incompatible_use_host_features)

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13839

    Closes #16626.

Important changes:

  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).

    Work towards #16124 Fixes #10923

    Closes #16428.

  • Starlark print() statements are now emitted iff the line of code is executed. They are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the Starlark code is re-executed. Additionally, multiple identical print() statements (same string from the same line of code, e.g. from a loop) are all emitted and no longer deduplicated.

  • Fixes a bug where some compilation flags would not be applied to a cc_test

  • Added a native.package_relative_label() function, which converts a label string to a Label object in the context of the calling package, in contrast to Label(), which does so in the context of the current .bzl file. Both functions now also accept relative labels such as :foo, and are idempotent.

Release 7.0.0-pre.20230410.1 (2023-04-17)

Baseline: 237fb69ede58a7cb672363451c2cb455637fccfe

Incompatible changes:

  • Remove high priority workers functionality from blaze.

Important changes:

  • --experimental_remote_build_event_upload has been renamed to --remote_build_event_upload
  • [Breaking change] platform, constraint_setting, and constraint_value can no longer take an applicable_licenses value. Remediation is to remove the attribute and rely on the package level default.

Release 7.0.0-pre.20230405.2 (2023-04-12)

Baseline: 177f0d49913d74e7b1a4aae52f835702d7e85401

Cherry picks:

   + 81ee0fc29fb538d0849c6e7ccfff925f99b87453:
     Remove globDeps containing some Glob skyKey check

Important changes:

  • cc_test can now be configured by using a native.toolchain().
  • @foo labels can now be used on the command line as the top-level target (that is, bazel build @foo now works). Double-dot syntax is now forbidden (bazel build ../foo will no longer work).
  • The location of rules that explicitly specify generator_name and/or generator_function attributes (typically because they are incidentally copied from native.existing_rule()) is now the top-level call in the BUILD file, which is consistent with rules that do not explicitly specify these attributes.
  • Warnings (most notably those associated with the deprecation rule attribute) are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the target in question is re-analyzed. Warnings are purely informational, so this change has no bearing on the correctness of the build. Downstream tests that break due to this change should update their expectations.

This release contains contributions from many people at Google, as well as Fabian Meumertzheim, Jack Dai, Konstantin Erman.

Release 7.0.0-pre.20230330.3 (2023-04-06)

Cherry picks:

   + eee0d9dfe3513042112a0f0ec519e2b232e5d203:
     Add an option retention option to proto_library.

Incompatible changes:

  • --experimental_execution_graph_log no longer exists. Current users that want local logs need to pass --experimental_enable_execution_graph_log --experimental_execution_graph_log_path=/some/local/path. Current users that want logs uploaded to BEP need to pass --experimental_enable_execution_graph_log --experimental_stream_log_file_uploads.
  • Remove ‘darwin’ as a CPU value, use ‘darwin_x86_64’ instead

Important changes:

  • Added native.module_name() and native.module_version() to allow BUILD macro authors to acquire information about which Bazel module the current repo is associated with.
  • Add --skip_incompatible_explicit_targets option
  • Remove ‘darwin’ as a CPU value, use ‘darwin_x86_64’ instead

Incompatible changes:

  • --legacy_bazel_java_test is now a no-op
  • --legacy_bazel_java_test is now a no-op

Important changes:

  • The flag --distinct_host_configuration is removed. It has been a no-op since Bazel 6.0.0.

This release contains contributions from many people at Google, as well as Alessandro Patti, Alex Eagle, Benjamin Peterson, Ed Schouten, Fabian Meumertzheim, hvd, Jon Landis, something_vague.

Release 7.0.0-pre.20230316.2 (2023-03-27)

   + 8a23169311142f49ceef076eb02e06f030e275ed:
     Automated rollback of commit
     08d31877bd5c1500e3ca67f47bcd3b79b4af226d.

Incompatible changes:

  • Bazel's local CPU resource on Linux is now container aware. Use --local_cpu_resources, --loading_phase_threads or --jobs to override.
  • copy_from_rule is exec_groups is deprecated (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/17668).
  • --legacy_bazel_java_test is now a no-op
  • --legacy_bazel_java_test is now a no-op

Important changes:

  • making --incompatible_use_platforms_repo_for_constraints do nothing. Using constraints from @bazel_tools//platforms with or without the flag will throw error with message “Constraints from @bazel_tools//platforms have been removed. Please use constraints from @platforms repository embedded in Bazel, or preferably declare dependency on https://github.com/bazelbuild/platforms
  • Fixed an issue where WORKSPACE and WORKSPACE-loaded .bzl files couldn‘t see the Bzlmod root module’s mappings when Bzlmod is enabled.
  • Subsequent settings of --extra_execution_platforms now override previous settings, instead of adding them to a list. If you currently set --extra_execution_platforms more than once, please migrate by passing a list of values to --extra_execution_platforms instead so that earlier values aren't overwritten.
  • @bazel_tools//config:common_settings.bzl has been removed. Use @bazel_skylib//rules:common_settings.bzl instead.
  • cc_shared_library is no longer experimental, see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16709 for details

   + e0cdaced03750823021b8b1f5b82a71170d67642:

Incompatible changes:

  • This has the side effect of changing the message on unsuccessful builds from
    FAILED: Build did NOT complete successfully (0 packages loaded)
    
    to
    ERROR: Build did NOT complete successfully
    
  • Bazel no longer increases the delay between progress updates when there is no cursor control.
  • This has the side effect of changing the message on unsuccessful builds from
    FAILED: Build did NOT complete successfully (0 packages loaded)
    
    to
    ERROR: Build did NOT complete successfully
    
  • the --experimental_async_execution flag is now a no-op.
  • --experimental_replay_action_out_err is not a no-op.
  • cquery --output=files also outputs source files.
  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.
  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.
  • --incompatible_always_include_files_in_data is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16654 for details.
  • This changes the behavior of Python version in exec/host configuration. Mitigation is to set Python version on the targets.
  • When multiple --deleted_packages options are passed on the command line, they will be concatenated instead of the latest one taking effect.
  • This has the side effect of changing the message on unsuccessful builds from
  • JSON profile: Use doubles instead of strings for counter series.
  • query --output=proto --order_output=deps now returns targets in topological order (previously there was no ordering).
  • --experimental_build_transitive_python_runfiles is flipped to false. See #16303 for details
  • --incompatible_python_disable_py2 is flipped to true. See #17293 for details.
  • When remote cache evicts blobs, Bazel will exit with code 39.
  • --features only applies to targets built in the target configuration, and --host_features is used for the host / exec configuration (gated behind --incompatible_use_host_features)
  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.

New features:

  • The aquery and cquery commands now respect the --query_file flag just like the query command.

Important changes:

  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).
  • Starlark print() statements are now emitted iff the line of code is executed. They are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the Starlark code is re-executed. Additionally, multiple identical print() statements (same string from the same line of code, e.g. from a loop) are all emitted and no longer deduplicated.
  • Fixes a bug where some compilation flags would not be applied to a cc_test
  • removed outdated ctx.host_fragments
  • removed outdated ctx.host_configuration
  • Now that the host configuration is finished, genrule should prefer the use of tools and stop using exec_tools.
  • Added a native.package_relative_label() function, which converts a label string to a Label object in the context of the calling package, in contrast to Label(), which does so in the context of the current .bzl file. Both functions now also accept relative labels such as :foo, and are idempotent.
  • Update Android manifest merger to v30.1.3, and also drop support for legacy (pre-D8) desugaring.
  • Adds coverage metric support to android_local_test
  • Correctly encode double value positive infinity as “inf” instead of “+inf” for textprotos.
  • Add --use_target_platform_for_tests which uses the target platform for executing tests instead of the execution platform.
  • Custom C++ rules on Windows calling cc_common.create_linking_context_from_compilation_outputs should review whether each target of the rule type should produce a dynamic library since a condition which blocked their creation has been moved to the rules from behind the API.
  • Add flag --experimental_remote_cache_ttl and set the default value to 3 hours.

Incompatible changes:

  • Bazel no longer increases the delay between progress updates when there is no cursor control.

  • --incompatible_always_include_files_in_data is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16654 for details.

  • cquery --output=files also outputs source files.

    Closes #16602.

  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.

  • This changes the behavior of Python version in exec/host configuration. Mitigation is to set Python version on the targets.

  • --features only applies to targets built in the target configuration, and --host_features is used for the host / exec configuration (gated behind --incompatible_use_host_features)

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13839

    Closes #16626.

Important changes:

  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).

    Work towards #16124 Fixes #10923

    Closes #16428.

  • Starlark print() statements are now emitted iff the line of code is executed. They are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the Starlark code is re-executed. Additionally, multiple identical print() statements (same string from the same line of code, e.g. from a loop) are all emitted and no longer deduplicated.

  • Fixes a bug where some compilation flags would not be applied to a cc_test

  • Added a native.package_relative_label() function, which converts a label string to a Label object in the context of the calling package, in contrast to Label(), which does so in the context of the current .bzl file. Both functions now also accept relative labels such as :foo, and are idempotent.

  • This changes the behavior of Python version in exec/host configuration. Mitigation is to set Python version on the targets.
  • When multiple --deleted_packages options are passed on the command line, they will be concatenated instead of the latest one taking effect.
  • This has the side effect of changing the message on unsuccessful builds from
  • JSON profile: Use doubles instead of strings for counter series.
  • query --output=proto --order_output=deps now returns targets in topological order (previously there was no ordering).
  • --experimental_build_transitive_python_runfiles is flipped to false. See #16303 for details
  • --incompatible_python_disable_py2 is flipped to true. See #17293 for details.
  • When remote cache evicts blobs, Bazel will exit with code 39.
  • --features only applies to targets built in the target configuration, and --host_features is used for the host / exec configuration (gated behind --incompatible_use_host_features)

New features:

  • The aquery and cquery commands now respect the --query_file flag just like the query command.

  • Fixes a bug where some compilation flags would not be applied to a cc_test
  • removed outdated ctx.host_fragments
  • removed outdated ctx.host_configuration
  • Now that the host configuration is finished, genrule should prefer the use of tools and stop using exec_tools.
  • Added a native.package_relative_label() function, which converts a label string to a Label object in the context of the calling package, in contrast to Label(), which does so in the context of the current .bzl file. Both functions now also accept relative labels such as :foo, and are idempotent.
  • Update Android manifest merger to v30.1.3, and also drop support for legacy (pre-D8) desugaring.
  • Adds coverage metric support to android_local_test
  • Correctly encode double value positive infinity as “inf” instead of “+inf” for textprotos.
  • Add --use_target_platform_for_tests which uses the target platform for executing tests instead of the execution platform.
  • Custom C++ rules on Windows calling cc_common.create_linking_context_from_compilation_outputs should review whether each target of the rule type should produce a dynamic library since a condition which blocked their creation has been moved to the rules from behind the API.

     [6.1.0]Fix --host_features with multiple transitions (#17641)

Incompatible changes:

  • Bazel no longer increases the delay between progress updates when there is no cursor control.

  • --incompatible_always_include_files_in_data is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16654 for details.

  • cquery --output=files also outputs source files.

    Closes #16602.

  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.

  • This changes the behavior of Python version in exec/host configuration. Mitigation is to set Python version on the targets.

  • --features only applies to targets built in the target configuration, and --host_features is used for the host / exec configuration (gated behind --incompatible_use_host_features)

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13839

    Closes #16626.

Important changes:

  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).

    Work towards #16124 Fixes #10923

    Closes #16428.

  • Starlark print() statements are now emitted iff the line of code is executed. They are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the Starlark code is re-executed. Additionally, multiple identical print() statements (same string from the same line of code, e.g. from a loop) are all emitted and no longer deduplicated.

  • Fixes a bug where some compilation flags would not be applied to a cc_test

  • Added a native.package_relative_label() function, which converts a label string to a Label object in the context of the calling package, in contrast to Label(), which does so in the context of the current .bzl file. Both functions now also accept relative labels such as :foo, and are idempotent.

Incompatible changes:

  • Bazel no longer increases the delay between progress updates when there is no cursor control.

  • --incompatible_always_include_files_in_data is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16654 for details.

  • cquery --output=files also outputs source files.

    Closes #16602.

  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.

  • This changes the behavior of Python version in exec/host configuration. Mitigation is to set Python version on the targets.

  • --features only applies to targets built in the target configuration, and --host_features is used for the host / exec configuration (gated behind --incompatible_use_host_features)

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13839

    Closes #16626.

Important changes:

  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).

    Work towards #16124 Fixes #10923

    Closes #16428.

  • Starlark print() statements are now emitted iff the line of code is executed. They are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the Starlark code is re-executed. Additionally, multiple identical print() statements (same string from the same line of code, e.g. from a loop) are all emitted and no longer deduplicated.

  • Fixes a bug where some compilation flags would not be applied to a cc_test

  • Added a native.package_relative_label() function, which converts a label string to a Label object in the context of the calling package, in contrast to Label(), which does so in the context of the current .bzl file. Both functions now also accept relative labels such as :foo, and are idempotent.

Incompatible changes:

  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since the path would refer to a netrc file inside the external repository by absolute path. Migration should be straightforward.

  • genrule switched to use exec transition instead of host. This can break targets with hardcoded output paths. To avoid using hardcoded paths use make variables, see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/4.2.2/be/make-variables.html#pre defined_label_variables

  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since...

  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF

  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF

  • The --incompatible_existing_rules_immutable_view flag has been flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13907 for migration notes.

  • Split up the C++ archive from the C++ link action and set CppArchive as mnemonic.

  • workspace(managed_directories=) is not available anymore.

  • --legacy_important_outputs now has a default of false.

  • --legacy_important_outputs default reverted to true.

  • objc_library now requires CcInfo in its deps. If this breaks you, add empty CcInfo() to your rule.

  • Flag --experimental_local_memory_estimate removed.

  • Added a new flag --incompatible_unambiguous_label_stringification, which causes labels in the main repo to stringify into unambiguous forms starting with an @. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/15916 for more information.

  • analysis_test moved into testing.analysis_test

  • Flip incompatible_enable_cc_toolchain_resolution (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7260)

  • (Rollback) Flip incompatible_enable_cc_toolchain_resolution (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7260)

  • name parameter is removed from rule call (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16301)

  • name parameter is removed from rule call (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16301)

  • name parameter is removed from rule call (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16301)

  • --incompatible_remote_downloader_send_all_headers is flipped to true. See #16356 for details.

  • GrpcRemoteDownloader only includes relevant headers instead of sending all credentials.

  • In package_group's packages attribute, the syntax “//...” now refers to all packages in the same repository as the package group, rather than all packages everywhere. The new item “public” can be used instead to obtain the old behavior. In bazel query --output=proto (and --output=xml), the packages attribute now serializes with the leading double slash included (for instance, //foo/bar/... instead of foo/bar/...). See also #16355, #16323, and #16391.

  • Bazel no longer increases the delay between progress updates when there is no cursor control.

  • --incompatible_always_include_files_in_data is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16654 for details.

  • cquery --output=files also outputs source files.

    Closes #16602.

  • --incompatible_strict_conflict_checks is flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16729 for details.

  • This changes the behavior of Python version in exec/host configuration. Mitigation is to set Python version on the targets.

New features:

  • Support local_repository in Bazel Registry's source.json file

Important changes:

  • Deprecate --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag, in preparation for removal in Bazel 6.x.

  • Treat py_*.srcs_version=“PY2” the same as “PY2ONLY”.

  • The Build Event Protocol now contains file digests and sizes along with the file name and URI.

  • Refactor system suspend event handling.

  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()

  • Allow \a \b \f \v escape sequences in Starlark.

  • Match remote and local xcode version by most granular version.

  • Adds --experimental_worker_multiplex_sandboxing flag that controls whether to sandbox multiplex workers that support it.

  • provider() has a new parameter: init, a callback for performing pre-processing and validation of field values. Iff this parameter is set, provider() returns a tuple of 2 elements: the usual provider symbol (which, when called, invokes init) and a raw constructor (which bypasses init).

  • Tests that fail to create or complete their TestAttemptContinuation by throwing an ExecException will report an INCOMPLETE status. Previously, Bazel would fail to report any status for the test attempt.

  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.

  • Include more information about configurations in cquery proto formatted output. This deprecates the configuration field of AnalysisProtosV2.ConfiguredTarget, and adds a new field, configuration_id, to be used instead.

  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps

  • In aquery and cquery proto output, indicate if a configuration is a tool or non-tool configuration.

  • Include complete configurations in cquery proto output.

  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps

  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.

  • Add some documentation about how configuration information is conveyed in cquery proto output.

  • Introduces experimental static library linking API under apple_common.link_multi_arch_static_library

  • Further deprecation and removal of pkg_tar. Stop supporting legacy use of ‘files’ attribute, where it could be a list of labels instead of a map of paths to labels.

  • Removed --incompatible_no_build_defs_pkg flag. It never fulfilled its purpose because --all_incompatible_changes would never set it. The last rule it gated (pkg_tar) is scheduled to be removed in Bazel 6.x.

  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.

  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).

  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.

  • The default dexer is now d8. dx can be optionally enabled using: --define=android_dexmerger_tool=dx_dexmerger
    --define=android_incremental_dexing_tool=dx_dexbuilder
    --define=android_standalone_dexing_tool=dx_compat_dx
    --use_workers_with_dexbuilder

  • Packaging support for deploy JAR embedded JDK files (hermetic Java).

  • Don't stamp cc_common.link actions for tool dependencies.

  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.

  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.

  • Allow specialization to work with constraint_values.

  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.

  • Make ijar / java_import preserve classes with @kotlin.Metadata annotations

  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).

  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).

  • Add devtools/build/lib/worker:work_request_handlers to the remote android tools release package. This will be transitively packaged into all_android_tools.

  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.

  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.

  • Advance android_tools_pkg version to 0.24.0.

  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).

  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.

  • “blaze config” now only reports info from the last build. To compare configurations across multiple builds, redirect “blaze config” output to a file and run your favorite diff tool.

  • The --incompatible_override_toolchain_transition flag is now always set, and will be removed in the future. Thus, --noincompatible_override_toolchain_transition has no effect, and the value of the incompatible_use_toolchain_transition parameter in aspect() and rule() builtins is ignored.

  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).

  • Toolchain types may now be optional, in addition to mandatory. See https://bazel.build/docs/toolchains#optional-toolchains for further details.

  • Add six to deps of has_services=1 py_proto_librarys.

  • pkg_tar(symlinks) has been removed. Users needing that feature should migrate to @rules_pkg.

  • Aspects can now define and use exec groups using the same API as rules.

  • Removed the obsolete --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag. The feature is permanently enabled.

  • embedded_tools packages R8 desugarer again

  • Bazel now selects sh path based on execution platform instead of host platform, making it possible to execute sh actions in multiplatform builds. --shell_executable now only applies to actions configured for host.

  • labels in genquery.scope are no longer configured.

  • When Bzlmod is enabled, all Bzlmod-generated repos will have an extra ‘@’ prepended to their names. This effectively enables the canonical label literal syntax for Bzlmod-generated repos (@@canonicalRepoName//pkg:target; see https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N81qfCa8oskCk5LqTW-LNthy6EBrDo t7bdUsjz6JFC4/edit?usp=sharing).

  • Exposed CcSharedLibraryInfo to Starlark builtins.

  • Enable --use_top_level_targets_for_symlinks by default.

  • Singlejar accepts runtime Created-By field

  • --noincompatible_disable_managed_directories, and with that, workspace(managed_directories=) is not supported anymore.

  • Bazel supports D8 desugaring, albeit without persistent workers

  • Remove mtime options from pkg_tar. Users should migrate to @rules_pkg.

  • Test for experimental multiplexed persistent resource processor.

  • Added new register_{execution_platforms,toolchains} directives to the MODULE.bazel file, to replace the {execution_platforms,toolchains}_to_register attributes on the module() directive.

  • The legacy pkg_tar no longer supports the ability to untar and repackage an input tar file (deps attribute). Users needed that capability must switch to github.com/bazelbuild/rules_pkg.

  • cquery's new output mode --output=files lists the output files of the targets matching the query. It takes the current value of --output_groups into account.

  • Change singlejar metadata to report Created-By Bazel

  • Add support for fetching RPC credentials from credential helper.

  • Revert interface_deps back to implementation_deps after problem reported in. Use buildozer 'rename deps implementation_deps' //...:%cc_library; buildozer 'rename interface_deps deps' //...:%cc_library

  • Fix for desugaring failure on Bazel+Android+Windows build scenario.

  • D8 is the default desugarer

  • Migrate main_dex_list_creator to D8 (DX deprecation)

  • --experimental_enable_bzlmod has been renamed --enable_bzlmod, and still defaults to false.

  • selects() no longer produce irrelevant duplicate label checks

  • Adds a dexer output cache to CompatDexBuilder to improve build speed.

  • Improved error messages when analyzing inline bzl code

  • Improved error messages when analyzing inline bzl code

  • The @bazel_tools//tools/cpp:compiler flag now has the value gcc if the configured compiler is detected to be gcc rather than the generic value compiler. A branch for gcc may have to be added to select statements that do not have a default case that handles gcc appropriately.

  • The get_child method of path now accepts an arbitrary number of relative path strings as positional arguments.

  • SourceManifestAction supports Action.content

  • Add --incompatible_build_transitive_python_runfiles alias. See #16303

  • The @bazel_tools//tools/cpp:compiler flag now has the value clang for the auto-configured Xcode toolchain rather than the generic value compiler. A branch for clang may have to be added to select statements that do not have a default case that handles this toolchain appropriately.

  • added additional debug message to warn of skipped toolchains during resolution

  • The deprecated --remote_allow_symlink_upload flag has been removed. Symlinks in local action outputs are always permitted, even with remote caching. Whether they're uploaded as symlinks or as the files/directories they point to is still determined by the --incompatible_remote_symlinks flag.

  • Added struct, json, proto, and depset to the starlark environment of Bazel's cquery (--output=starlark) command

  • Added three package_group-related flags: --incompatible_package_group_includes_double_slash (#16391), --incompatible_package_group_has_public_syntax (#16355), and --incompatible_fix_package_group_reporoot_syntax (#16323). With these flags, package_group can now easily specify “all packages”, “no packages”, and “all packages in the current repo”.

  • Record hermetic packaged JDK modules file size in deploy JAR manifest ‘JDK-Lib-Modules-Size’ attribute.

  • .bzl files may now set a visibility to guard what other .bzl and BUILD files may load them. See [...] for more information.

  • Deletes the --extra_proguard_specs Blaze flag

  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).

    Work towards #16124 Fixes #10923

    Closes #16428.

  • Starlark print() statements are now emitted iff the line of code is executed. They are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the Starlark code is re-executed. Additionally, multiple identical print() statements (same string from the same line of code, e.g. from a loop) are all emitted and no longer deduplicated.

  • Fixes a bug where some compilation flags would not be applied to a cc_test

Incompatible changes:

  • GrpcRemoteDownloader only includes relevant headers instead of sending all credentials.

    Closes #16439.

  • analysis_test moved into testing.analysis_test

Important changes:

  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13047.

    Closes #14310.

  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.

  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.

  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.

  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).

    Closes #14971.

  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.

    Closes #14849.

  • none RELNOTES:none

  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.

  • Added new register_{execution_platforms,toolchains} directives to the MODULE.bazel file, to replace the {execution_platforms,toolchains}_to_register attributes on the module() directive.

  • Add support for fetching RPC credentials from credential helper.

    Progress on https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/15856

    Closes #15947.

  • cquery's new output mode --output=files lists the output files of the targets matching the query. It takes the current value of --output_groups into account.

    Closes #15552.

  • Fix for desugaring failure on Bazel+Android+Windows build scenario.

  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).

     Add support for crosstool feature to prefer PIC compiles even
     for optimized binaries. This can have performance penalty, but
     in configurations where dynamic linking is used for tests can
     lead to a substantially better sharing of artifacts between
     tests and binaries. In contrast to the existing --force_pic,
     this can be enabled per crosstool and respects whether PIC is
     available for the used crosstool.

Release 7.0.0-pre.20221123.2 (2022-12-08)

Baseline: 14e32e7f5d1492f7ca4ffc17c40b913ec5799603

Incompatible changes:

  • the --experimental_async_execution flag is now a no-op.

New features:

  • The aquery and cquery commands now respect the --query_file flag just like the query command.

Important changes:

  • Starlark print() statements are now emitted iff the line of code is executed. They are no longer replayed on subsequent invocations unless the Starlark code is re-executed. Additionally, multiple identical print() statements (same string from the same line of code, e.g. from a loop) are all emitted and no longer deduplicated.

Important changes:

  • The new path variable $(rlocationpath ...) and its plural form $(rlocationpaths ...) can be used to expand labels to the paths accepted by the Rlocation function of runfiles libraries. This is the preferred way to access data dependencies at runtime and works on all platforms, even when runfiles are not enabled (e.g., on Windows by default).

Release 6.0.0-pre.20221020.1 (2022-10-27)

Baseline: e7218d556a2a265183a10a19fcaa21c0277820ad

Incompatible changes:

  • In package_group's packages attribute, the syntax “//...” now refers to all packages in the same repository as the package group, rather than all packages everywhere. The new item “public” can be used instead to obtain the old behavior. In bazel query --output=proto (and --output=xml), the packages attribute now serializes with the leading double slash included (for instance, //foo/bar/... instead of foo/bar/...). See also #16355, #16323, and #16391.

New features:

  • Support local_repository in Bazel Registry's source.json file

Important changes:

  • Record hermetic packaged JDK modules file size in deploy JAR manifest ‘JDK-Lib-Modules-Size’ attribute.
  • .bzl files may now set a visibility to guard what other .bzl and BUILD files may load them. See [...] for more information.

Incompatible changes:

  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since the path would refer to a netrc file inside the external repository by absolute path. Migration should be straightforward.
  • genrule switched to use exec transition instead of host. This can break targets with hardcoded output paths. To avoid using hardcoded paths use make variables, see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/4.2.2/be/make-variables.html#pre defined_label_variables
  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since...
  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF
  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF
  • The --incompatible_existing_rules_immutable_view flag has been flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13907 for migration notes.
  • Split up the C++ archive from the C++ link action and set CppArchive as mnemonic.
  • workspace(managed_directories=) is not available anymore.
  • --legacy_important_outputs now has a default of false.
  • --legacy_important_outputs default reverted to true.
  • objc_library now requires CcInfo in its deps. If this breaks you, add empty CcInfo() to your rule.
  • Flag --experimental_local_memory_estimate removed.
  • Added a new flag --incompatible_unambiguous_label_stringification, which causes labels in the main repo to stringify into unambiguous forms starting with an @. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/15916 for more information.
  • analysis_test moved into testing.analysis_test
  • Flip incompatible_enable_cc_toolchain_resolution (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7260)
  • (Rollback) Flip incompatible_enable_cc_toolchain_resolution (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7260)
  • name parameter is removed from rule call (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16301)
  • name parameter is removed from rule call (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16301)
  • name parameter is removed from rule call (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/16301)
  • --incompatible_remote_downloader_send_all_headers is flipped to true. See #16356 for details.

Important changes:

  • Deprecate --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag, in preparation for removal in Bazel 6.x.
  • Treat py_*.srcs_version=“PY2” the same as “PY2ONLY”.
  • The Build Event Protocol now contains file digests and sizes along with the file name and URI.
  • Refactor system suspend event handling.
  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()
  • Allow \a \b \f \v escape sequences in Starlark.
  • Match remote and local xcode version by most granular version.
  • Adds --experimental_worker_multiplex_sandboxing flag that controls whether to sandbox multiplex workers that support it.
  • provider() has a new parameter: init, a callback for performing pre-processing and validation of field values. Iff this parameter is set, provider() returns a tuple of 2 elements: the usual provider symbol (which, when called, invokes init) and a raw constructor (which bypasses init).
  • Tests that fail to create or complete their TestAttemptContinuation by throwing an ExecException will report an INCOMPLETE status. Previously, Bazel would fail to report any status for the test attempt.
  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.
  • Include more information about configurations in cquery proto formatted output. This deprecates the configuration field of AnalysisProtosV2.ConfiguredTarget, and adds a new field, configuration_id, to be used instead.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • In aquery and cquery proto output, indicate if a configuration is a tool or non-tool configuration.
  • Include complete configurations in cquery proto output.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.
  • Add some documentation about how configuration information is conveyed in cquery proto output.
  • Introduces experimental static library linking API under apple_common.link_multi_arch_static_library
  • Further deprecation and removal of pkg_tar. Stop supporting legacy use of ‘files’ attribute, where it could be a list of labels instead of a map of paths to labels.
  • Removed --incompatible_no_build_defs_pkg flag. It never fulfilled its purpose because --all_incompatible_changes would never set it. The last rule it gated (pkg_tar) is scheduled to be removed in Bazel 6.x.
  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.
  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).
  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.
  • The default dexer is now d8. dx can be optionally enabled using: --define=android_dexmerger_tool=dx_dexmerger
    --define=android_incremental_dexing_tool=dx_dexbuilder
    --define=android_standalone_dexing_tool=dx_compat_dx
    --use_workers_with_dexbuilder
  • Packaging support for deploy JAR embedded JDK files (hermetic Java).
  • Don't stamp cc_common.link actions for tool dependencies.
  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.
  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.
  • Allow specialization to work with constraint_values.
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • Make ijar / java_import preserve classes with @kotlin.Metadata annotations
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Add devtools/build/lib/worker:work_request_handlers to the remote android tools release package. This will be transitively packaged into all_android_tools.
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.
  • Advance android_tools_pkg version to 0.24.0.
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • “blaze config” now only reports info from the last build. To compare configurations across multiple builds, redirect “blaze config” output to a file and run your favorite diff tool.
  • The --incompatible_override_toolchain_transition flag is now always set, and will be removed in the future. Thus, --noincompatible_override_toolchain_transition has no effect, and the value of the incompatible_use_toolchain_transition parameter in aspect() and rule() builtins is ignored.
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Toolchain types may now be optional, in addition to mandatory. See https://bazel.build/docs/toolchains#optional-toolchains for further details.
  • Add six to deps of has_services=1 py_proto_librarys.
  • pkg_tar(symlinks) has been removed. Users needing that feature should migrate to @rules_pkg.
  • Aspects can now define and use exec groups using the same API as rules.
  • Removed the obsolete --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag. The feature is permanently enabled.
  • embedded_tools packages R8 desugarer again
  • Bazel now selects sh path based on execution platform instead of host platform, making it possible to execute sh actions in multiplatform builds. --shell_executable now only applies to actions configured for host.
  • labels in genquery.scope are no longer configured.
  • When Bzlmod is enabled, all Bzlmod-generated repos will have an extra ‘@’ prepended to their names. This effectively enables the canonical label literal syntax for Bzlmod-generated repos (@@canonicalRepoName//pkg:target; see https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N81qfCa8oskCk5LqTW-LNthy6EBrDo t7bdUsjz6JFC4/edit?usp=sharing).
  • Exposed CcSharedLibraryInfo to Starlark builtins.
  • Enable --use_top_level_targets_for_symlinks by default.
  • Singlejar accepts runtime Created-By field
  • --noincompatible_disable_managed_directories, and with that, workspace(managed_directories=) is not supported anymore.
  • Bazel supports D8 desugaring, albeit without persistent workers
  • Remove mtime options from pkg_tar. Users should migrate to @rules_pkg.
  • Test for experimental multiplexed persistent resource processor.
  • Added new register_{execution_platforms,toolchains} directives to the MODULE.bazel file, to replace the {execution_platforms,toolchains}_to_register attributes on the module() directive.
  • The legacy pkg_tar no longer supports the ability to untar and repackage an input tar file (deps attribute). Users needed that capability must switch to github.com/bazelbuild/rules_pkg.
  • cquery's new output mode --output=files lists the output files of the targets matching the query. It takes the current value of --output_groups into account.
  • Change singlejar metadata to report Created-By Bazel
  • Add support for fetching RPC credentials from credential helper.
  • Revert interface_deps back to implementation_deps after problem reported in. Use buildozer 'rename deps implementation_deps' //...:%cc_library; buildozer 'rename interface_deps deps' //...:%cc_library
  • Fix for desugaring failure on Bazel+Android+Windows build scenario.
  • D8 is the default desugarer
  • Migrate main_dex_list_creator to D8 (DX deprecation)
  • --experimental_enable_bzlmod has been renamed --enable_bzlmod, and still defaults to false.
  • selects() no longer produce irrelevant duplicate label checks
  • Adds a dexer output cache to CompatDexBuilder to improve build speed.
  • Improved error messages when analyzing inline bzl code
  • Improved error messages when analyzing inline bzl code
  • The @bazel_tools//tools/cpp:compiler flag now has the value gcc if the configured compiler is detected to be gcc rather than the generic value compiler. A branch for gcc may have to be added to select statements that do not have a default case that handles gcc appropriately.
  • The get_child method of path now accepts an arbitrary number of relative path strings as positional arguments.
  • SourceManifestAction supports Action.content
  • Add --incompatible_build_transitive_python_runfiles alias. See #16303
  • The @bazel_tools//tools/cpp:compiler flag now has the value clang for the auto-configured Xcode toolchain rather than the generic value compiler. A branch for clang may have to be added to select statements that do not have a default case that handles this toolchain appropriately.
  • added additional debug message to warn of skipped toolchains during resolution
  • The deprecated --remote_allow_symlink_upload flag has been removed. Symlinks in local action outputs are always permitted, even with remote caching. Whether they're uploaded as symlinks or as the files/directories they point to is still determined by the --incompatible_remote_symlinks flag.
  • Added struct, json, proto, and depset to the starlark environment of Bazel's cquery (--output=starlark) command
  • Added three package_group-related flags: --incompatible_package_group_includes_double_slash (#16391), --incompatible_package_group_has_public_syntax (#16355), and --incompatible_fix_package_group_reporoot_syntax (#16323). With these flags, package_group can now easily specify “all packages”, “no packages”, and “all packages in the current repo”.

Incompatible changes:

  • Removing java_common.javac_jar Starlark call.

  • native.existing_rule now returns select values in a form that is accepted by rule instantiation. This is a breaking API change because there is some code that relies on the precise type returned, including brittle workarounds for this bug specifically and insufficiently flexible workarounds for other issues with the intersection of select and native.existing_rule.

  • flipped incompatible_use_toolchain_resolution_for_java_rules, see #7849

  • Query output=xml/proto/location for source files will now show the location of line 1 of the source file (as the new default) instead of its location in the BUILD file.

  • Specifying a target pattern underneath a directory specified by .bazelignore will now emit a warning, not an error.

  • Query --order_output=auto will now sort lexicographically. However, when somepath is used as a top level function (e.g. query 'somepath(a, b)'), it will continue to output in dependency order. If you do not want the lexicographical output ordering, specify another --order_output value (no, deps or full) based on what ordering you require.

  • In the build event stream, BuildMetrics.TargetMetrics.targets_loaded is no longer populated. Its value was always mostly meaningless. BuildMetrics.TargetMetrics.targets_configured and BuildMetrics.ActionSummary.actions_created now include configured aspect data.

  • //visibility:legacy_public has been removed.

  • Flip and remove incompatible_dont_collect_so_artifacts (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13043).

  • Remove flag --experimental_no_product_name_out_symlink: it is always true.

  • The Starlark method generate_dsym in objc fragment has been deleted. Please use the equivalent apple_generate_dsym in cpp fragment instead.

  • Native libraries in data attribute are not collected. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13550 for details

  • Enforce the --profile path to be absolute.

  • Enforce the --memory_profile path to be absolute.

  • JavaToolchainInfo.jvm_opt returns Depset instead of a list.

  • --apple_sdk has been deleted. It is a no-op.

  • --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build is now a no-op and will be deleted in a future release. Use --memory_profile=/dev/null instead.

  • Flipped --incompatible_disallow_resource_jars (see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13221).

  • Remove --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build

  • JSON trace profile: rename counter names.

  • Removed --action_graph from the dump command.

  • Remove --{experimental_,}json_trace_compression option.

  • Remove --experimental_profile_cpu_usage.

  • flipped --incompatible_java_common_parameters (see #12373)

  • GrpcRemoteDownloader only includes relevant headers instead of sending all credentials.

    Closes #16439.

New features:

  • Args.add_all and Args.add_joined can now accept closures in map_each if explicitly enabled via allow_closure.
  • Add --bes_header flag to pass extra headers to the BES server.

Important changes:

  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.

  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.

  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.

  • none PAIR=cmita

  • The --incompatible_load_python_rules_from_bzl flag is now a no-op.

  • Filter all (instead of just C++) source files for coverage output according to --instrumentation_filter and --instrument_test_targets.

  • The --incompatible_disable_native_apple_binary_rule flag has been added which disables the native apple_binary rule. Users who need to use apple_binary directly (if they cannot use one of the more specific Apple rules) should load it from https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_apple.

  • The Android rules' --use_singlejar_apkbuilder is now a no-op. SingleJar will always be used to build APKs.

  • dict.setdefault(key, ...) now fails if dict is frozen, even if it already contains key. This is an incompatible API change.

  • Flag --incompatible_objc_provider_remove_compile_info is removed. See #11359.

  • Starlark now permits def statements to be nested (closures).

  • native.existing_rule now returns select values in a form that is accepted by rule instantiation. This is a breaking API change, though the fallout is expected to be small.

  • Starlark now supports lambda (anonymous function) expressions.

  • The “test” and “coverage” commands no longer return 3 when a test action fails because of a system error. Instead, the exit code reflects the type of system error.

  • The undocumented ctx.expand feature no longer exists.

  • Make --legacy_dynamic_scheduler a no-op flag.

  • Multiplex persistent workers can now use the JSON protocol.

  • native.existing_rule now returns a mutable list, not a tuple, for a list-valued attributes. This is an incompatible API change.

  • Roll back change to have native.existing_rules use list instead of tuple.

  • BEP includes test suite expansions.

  • config_setting now honors visibility attribute (and defaults to //visibility:public)

  • Change the MultiArchSplitTransitionProvider to be based on platform type + CPU instead of fixed “ios_” + cpu.

  • enforce config_setting visibility. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/12932 for details.

  • add a flag to build v4 signature file

  • Added _direct_source_jars output group to Java related targets. END_PUBLIC

  • pkg_deb is no longer part of @bazel_tools//build_defs/pkg:pkg.bzl. Use https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_pkg/tree/main/pkg instead

  • Allowing the lipo operations to be conditional in the linkMultiArchBinary API for Apple binaries. Single architecture slices are now returned through AppleBinaryOutput and the Starlark API.

  • Release restriction for “-” in the package name for Python sources. Now py_binary and py_test targets can have main source file with “-” in the path.

  • Users consuming BEP may assume that a named_set_of_files event will appear before any event referencing that named_set by ID. This allows consumers to process the files for such events (eg. TargetCompleted) immediately.

  • BEP includes all files from successful actions in requested output groups. Previously, an output group's files were excluded if any file in the output group was not produced due to a failing action. Users can expect BEP output to be larger for failed builds.

  • In BEP, TargetComplete.output_group has a new field incomplete indicating that the file_sets field is missing one or more declared artifacts whose generating actions failed.

  • The flag --toolchain_resolution_debug now takes a regex argument, which is used to check which toolchain types should have debug info printed. You may use .* as an argument to keep the current behavior of debugging every toolchain type.

  • Add runfiles.merge_all() for merging a sequence of runfiles objects.

  • runfiles.merge() and merge_all() now respect --nested_set_depth_limit. If you hit the depth limit because you were calling merge() in a loop, use merge_all() on a sequence of runfiles objects instead.

  • Bazel will no longer create a bazel-out symlink if --symlink_prefix is specified: the directory pointed to via the bazel-out symlink is accessible via ${symlink_prefix}-out. If this causes problems for you, set --experimental_no_product_name_out_symlink=false in your builds and file an issue.

  • Updates worker protocol with cancellation fields, and adds experimental_worker_cancellation flag to control cancellation.

  • Simplify build failure output by always using NNN arguments.

  • trim_test_configuration now defaults to on

  • Mark genrule.srcs as a source attribute for coverage.

  • When using --allow_analysis_failures (for example, via bazel-skylib's analysistest with expect_failure = True), analysis-time failures in aspect implementation functions will now be propagated and saved in AnalysisFailureInfo, just like analysis-time failures in rules.

  • cquery --noimplicit_deps now correctly filters out resolved cc_toolchains

  • Sign apks deterministically.

  • Make gcov optional in cc_toolchain tools.

  • If --experimental_prefer_mutual_xcode is passed, Bazel will choose the local default (instead of the newest mutually available version) if it's available both locally and remotely.

  • Remove java_lite_proto_library.strict_deps attribute.

  • Generate proguard configurations deterministically.

  • Adds a new flag, --incompatible_enable_cc_test_feature which switches from the use of build variables to the feature of the same name.

  • Dropped fragile xz support from built in pkg_tar. Users requiring xz compression should switch to bazlebuild/rules_pkg.

  • If all strategies of one branch (the local or remote execution branch) of the dynamic strategy fail to even accept (via the response they give from canExec) the action, dynamic will now try to see if the other branch can accept it. (Trying to run it and it failing will still cause a failure if it was the first result, this is about strategies claiming they can't even try the action)

  • Add disable_annotation_processing option to java_common.compile, which disables any annotation processors passed to plugins or in exported_plugins of deps

  • Remove obsolete --incompatible_prohibit_aapt1

  • The minimum Android build tools version for the Android rules is now 30.0.0

  • Adds --experimental_reuse_sandbox_directories flag to reuse already-created non-worker sandboxes with cleanup.

  • --experimental_force_gc_after_build is deprecated and will be removed soon. Use --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build instead

  • Forward coverage-instrumented files from non-tool dependencies by default.

  • The used_heap_size_post_build field in BEP is populated when the --memory_profile flag is set

  • --run_validations defaults to true.

  • Consider label_keyed_string_dict attributes when gathering instrumented files for coverage.

  • Remove flag --experimental_forward_instrumented_files_info_by_default, now that this behavior is the default.

  • When using MemoryProfiler with multiple GCs via the --memory_profile_stable_heap_parameters flag, we do a more precise calculation of heap used at the end of the build. This will generally result in lower values.

  • --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build is deprecated. Use --memory_profile=/dev/null instead.

  • Disable --all_incompatible_changes flag.

  • The --all_incompatible_changes flag is now a no-op

  • The --toolchain_resolution_debug flag now accepts regexes matching targets, as well as toolchain types, when choosing what debug messages to print.

  • Adds --experimental_existing_rules_immutable_view flag to make the native.existing_rule and native.existing_rules functions more efficient by returning immutable, lightweight dict-like view objects instead of mutable dicts.

  • Add support to length-delimited protos as undeclared output annotations []

  • The deprecated “relative_to_caller_repository” parameter has been removed from the Label constructor.

  • The toolchain transition is now enabled for all toolchains.

  • incompatible_disable_depset_items is flipped

  • The --experimental_existing_rules_immutable_view flag has been renamed to --incompatible_existing_rules_immutable_view

  • Bazel no longer supports Java 8. From this version on, the minimum required JDK is OpenJDK 11.

  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13047.

    Closes #14310.

  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.

  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.

  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.

  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).

    Closes #14971.

  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.

    Closes #14849.

  • none RELNOTES:none

  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.

  • Added new register_{execution_platforms,toolchains} directives to the MODULE.bazel file, to replace the {execution_platforms,toolchains}_to_register attributes on the module() directive.

  • Add support for fetching RPC credentials from credential helper.

    Progress on https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/15856

    Closes #15947.

  • cquery's new output mode --output=files lists the output files of the targets matching the query. It takes the current value of --output_groups into account.

    Closes #15552.

Release 4.2.3 (2022-10-18)

Baseline: 37a429ad12b4c9e6a62dbae4881a1ff03b81ab40

Cherry picks:

   + a689d673abadf80f1efaf8ddaeee92d56fc2847b:
     Use getRunfilesPath for run_under executable path generation.
     getRootRelativePath doesn't return a valid runfiles path for
     external source files anymore after the recent external source
     root change. Also, it won't work for external labels either once
     the --nolegacy_external_runfiles becomes default. This fixes
     issue #12545.

     [4.2.3] Update GrpcRemoteDownloader to only include relevant
     headers. (#16450) (#16459)

Incompatible changes:

  • GrpcRemoteDownloader only includes relevant headers instead of sending all credentials.

    Closes #16439.

Important changes:

  • Multiplex persistent workers can now use the JSON protocol.
  • enforce config_setting visibility. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/12932 for details.
  • The minimum Android build tools version for the Android rules is now 30.0.0
  • Updates worker protocol with cancellation fields, and adds experimental_worker_cancellation flag to control cancellation.
  • If all strategies of one branch (the local or remote execution branch) of the dynamic strategy fail to even accept (via the response they give from canExec) the action, dynamic will now try to see if the other branch can accept it. (Trying to run it and it failing will still cause a failure if it was the first result, this is about strategies claiming they can't even try the action)

Release 6.0.0-pre.20220922.1 (2022-09-30)

Baseline: 4e7d2a24715130ea5aec098e44f43fa603fad6b7

Incompatible changes:

  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since the path would refer to a netrc file inside the external repository by absolute path. Migration should be straightforward.
  • genrule switched to use exec transition instead of host. This can break targets with hardcoded output paths. To avoid using hardcoded paths use make variables, see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/4.2.2/be/make-variables.html#pre defined_label_variables
  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since...
  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF
  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF
  • The --incompatible_existing_rules_immutable_view flag has been flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13907 for migration notes.
  • Split up the C++ archive from the C++ link action and set CppArchive as mnemonic.
  • workspace(managed_directories=) is not available anymore.
  • --legacy_important_outputs now has a default of false.
  • --legacy_important_outputs default reverted to true.
  • objc_library now requires CcInfo in its deps. If this breaks you, add empty CcInfo() to your rule.
  • Flag --experimental_local_memory_estimate removed.
  • Added a new flag --incompatible_unambiguous_label_stringification, which causes labels in the main repo to stringify into unambiguous forms starting with an @. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/15916 for more information.
  • analysis_test moved into testing.analysis_test

Important changes:

  • Deprecate --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag, in preparation for removal in Bazel 6.x.
  • Treat py_*.srcs_version=“PY2” the same as “PY2ONLY”.
  • The Build Event Protocol now contains file digests and sizes along with the file name and URI.
  • Refactor system suspend event handling.
  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()
  • Allow \a \b \f \v escape sequences in Starlark.
  • Match remote and local xcode version by most granular version.
  • Adds --experimental_worker_multiplex_sandboxing flag that controls whether to sandbox multiplex workers that support it.
  • provider() has a new parameter: init, a callback for performing pre-processing and validation of field values. Iff this parameter is set, provider() returns a tuple of 2 elements: the usual provider symbol (which, when called, invokes init) and a raw constructor (which bypasses init).
  • Tests that fail to create or complete their TestAttemptContinuation by throwing an ExecException will report an INCOMPLETE status. Previously, Bazel would fail to report any status for the test attempt.
  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.
  • Include more information about configurations in cquery proto formatted output. This deprecates the configuration field of AnalysisProtosV2.ConfiguredTarget, and adds a new field, configuration_id, to be used instead.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • In aquery and cquery proto output, indicate if a configuration is a tool or non-tool configuration.
  • Include complete configurations in cquery proto output.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.
  • Add some documentation about how configuration information is conveyed in cquery proto output.
  • Introduces experimental static library linking API under apple_common.link_multi_arch_static_library
  • Further deprecation and removal of pkg_tar. Stop supporting legacy use of ‘files’ attribute, where it could be a list of labels instead of a map of paths to labels.
  • Removed --incompatible_no_build_defs_pkg flag. It never fulfilled its purpose because --all_incompatible_changes would never set it. The last rule it gated (pkg_tar) is scheduled to be removed in Bazel 6.x.
  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.
  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).
  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.
  • The default dexer is now d8. dx can be optionally enabled using: --define=android_dexmerger_tool=dx_dexmerger
    --define=android_incremental_dexing_tool=dx_dexbuilder
    --define=android_standalone_dexing_tool=dx_compat_dx
    --use_workers_with_dexbuilder
  • Packaging support for deploy JAR embedded JDK files (hermetic Java).
  • Don't stamp cc_common.link actions for tool dependencies.
  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.
  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.
  • Allow specialization to work with constraint_values.
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • Make ijar / java_import preserve classes with @kotlin.Metadata annotations
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Add devtools/build/lib/worker:work_request_handlers to the remote android tools release package. This will be transitively packaged into all_android_tools.
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.
  • Advance android_tools_pkg version to 0.24.0.
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • “blaze config” now only reports info from the last build. To compare configurations across multiple builds, redirect “blaze config” output to a file and run your favorite diff tool.
  • The --incompatible_override_toolchain_transition flag is now always set, and will be removed in the future. Thus, --noincompatible_override_toolchain_transition has no effect, and the value of the incompatible_use_toolchain_transition parameter in aspect() and rule() builtins is ignored.
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Toolchain types may now be optional, in addition to mandatory. See https://bazel.build/docs/toolchains#optional-toolchains for further details.
  • Add six to deps of has_services=1 py_proto_librarys.
  • pkg_tar(symlinks) has been removed. Users needing that feature should migrate to @rules_pkg.
  • Aspects can now define and use exec groups using the same API as rules.
  • Removed the obsolete --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag. The feature is permanently enabled.
  • embedded_tools packages R8 desugarer again
  • Bazel now selects sh path based on execution platform instead of host platform, making it possible to execute sh actions in multiplatform builds. --shell_executable now only applies to actions configured for host.
  • labels in genquery.scope are no longer configured.
  • When Bzlmod is enabled, all Bzlmod-generated repos will have an extra ‘@’ prepended to their names. This effectively enables the canonical label literal syntax for Bzlmod-generated repos (@@canonicalRepoName//pkg:target; see https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N81qfCa8oskCk5LqTW-LNthy6EBrDo t7bdUsjz6JFC4/edit?usp=sharing).
  • Exposed CcSharedLibraryInfo to Starlark builtins.
  • Enable --use_top_level_targets_for_symlinks by default.
  • Singlejar accepts runtime Created-By field
  • --noincompatible_disable_managed_directories, and with that, workspace(managed_directories=) is not supported anymore.
  • Bazel supports D8 desugaring, albeit without persistent workers
  • Remove mtime options from pkg_tar. Users should migrate to @rules_pkg.
  • Test for experimental multiplexed persistent resource processor.
  • Added new register_{execution_platforms,toolchains} directives to the MODULE.bazel file, to replace the {execution_platforms,toolchains}_to_register attributes on the module() directive.
  • The legacy pkg_tar no longer supports the ability to untar and repackage an input tar file (deps attribute). Users needed that capability must switch to github.com/bazelbuild/rules_pkg.
  • cquery's new output mode --output=files lists the output files of the targets matching the query. It takes the current value of --output_groups into account.
  • Change singlejar metadata to report Created-By Bazel
  • Add support for fetching RPC credentials from credential helper.
  • Revert interface_deps back to implementation_deps after problem reported in. Use buildozer 'rename deps implementation_deps' //...:%cc_library; buildozer 'rename interface_deps deps' //...:%cc_library
  • Fix for desugaring failure on Bazel+Android+Windows build scenario.
  • D8 is the default desugarer
  • Migrate main_dex_list_creator to D8 (DX deprecation)
  • --experimental_enable_bzlmod has been renamed --enable_bzlmod, and still defaults to false.
  • selects() no longer produce irrelevant duplicate label checks
  • Adds a dexer output cache to CompatDexBuilder to improve build speed.
  • Improved error messages when analyzing inline bzl code
  • Improved error messages when analyzing inline bzl code
  • The @bazel_tools//tools/cpp:compiler flag now has the value gcc if the configured compiler is detected to be gcc rather than the generic value compiler. A branch for gcc may have to be added to select statements that do not have a default case that handles gcc appropriately.
  • The get_child method of path now accepts an arbitrary number of relative path strings as positional arguments.
  • SourceManifestAction supports Action.content
  • Add --incompatible_build_transitive_python_runfiles alias. See #16303
  • The @bazel_tools//tools/cpp:compiler flag now has the value clang for the auto-configured Xcode toolchain rather than the generic value compiler. A branch for clang may have to be added to select statements that do not have a default case that handles this toolchain appropriately.
  • added additional debug message to warn of skipped toolchains during resolution

     clean commands

Important changes:

  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13047.

    Closes #14310.

  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.

  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.

  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.

  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).

    Closes #14971.

  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.

    Closes #14849.

  • none RELNOTES:none

  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.

  • Added new register_{execution_platforms,toolchains} directives to the MODULE.bazel file, to replace the {execution_platforms,toolchains}_to_register attributes on the module() directive.

  • Add support for fetching RPC credentials from credential helper.

    Progress on https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/15856

    Closes #15947.

  • cquery's new output mode --output=files lists the output files of the targets matching the query. It takes the current value of --output_groups into account.

    Closes #15552.

  • Fix for desugaring failure on Bazel+Android+Windows build scenario.

Important changes:

  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13047.

    Closes #14310.

  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.

  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.

  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.

  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).

    Closes #14971.

  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.

    Closes #14849.

  • none RELNOTES:none

  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.

  • Added new register_{execution_platforms,toolchains} directives to the MODULE.bazel file, to replace the {execution_platforms,toolchains}_to_register attributes on the module() directive.

  • Add support for fetching RPC credentials from credential helper.

    Progress on https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/15856

    Closes #15947.

  • cquery's new output mode --output=files lists the output files of the targets matching the query. It takes the current value of --output_groups into account.

Baseline: 62d1b0b2b6c9646855698b5d7f9515521bc37a45

Incompatible changes:

  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since the path would refer to a netrc file inside the external repository by absolute path. Migration should be straightforward.
  • genrule switched to use exec transition instead of host. This can break targets with hardcoded output paths. To avoid using hardcoded paths use make variables, see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/4.2.2/be/make-variables.html#pre defined_label_variables
  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since...
  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF
  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF
  • The --incompatible_existing_rules_immutable_view flag has been flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13907 for migration notes.
  • Split up the C++ archive from the C++ link action and set CppArchive as mnemonic.
  • workspace(managed_directories=) is not available anymore.
  • --legacy_important_outputs now has a default of false.
  • --legacy_important_outputs default reverted to true.
  • objc_library now requires CcInfo in its deps. If this breaks you, add empty CcInfo() to your rule.
  • Flag --experimental_local_memory_estimate removed.
  • Added a new flag --incompatible_unambiguous_label_stringification, which causes labels in the main repo to stringify into unambiguous forms starting with an @. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/15916 for more information.

Important changes:

  • Deprecate --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag, in preparation for removal in Bazel 6.x.
  • Treat py_*.srcs_version=“PY2” the same as “PY2ONLY”.
  • The Build Event Protocol now contains file digests and sizes along with the file name and URI.
  • Refactor system suspend event handling.
  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()
  • Allow \a \b \f \v escape sequences in Starlark.
  • Match remote and local xcode version by most granular version.
  • Adds --experimental_worker_multiplex_sandboxing flag that controls whether to sandbox multiplex workers that support it.
  • provider() has a new parameter: init, a callback for performing pre-processing and validation of field values. Iff this parameter is set, provider() returns a tuple of 2 elements: the usual provider symbol (which, when called, invokes init) and a raw constructor (which bypasses init).
  • Tests that fail to create or complete their TestAttemptContinuation by throwing an ExecException will report an INCOMPLETE status. Previously, Bazel would fail to report any status for the test attempt.
  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.
  • Include more information about configurations in cquery proto formatted output. This deprecates the configuration field of AnalysisProtosV2.ConfiguredTarget, and adds a new field, configuration_id, to be used instead.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • In aquery and cquery proto output, indicate if a configuration is a tool or non-tool configuration.
  • Include complete configurations in cquery proto output.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.
  • Add some documentation about how configuration information is conveyed in cquery proto output.
  • Introduces experimental static library linking API under apple_common.link_multi_arch_static_library
  • Further deprecation and removal of pkg_tar. Stop supporting legacy use of ‘files’ attribute, where it could be a list of labels instead of a map of paths to labels.
  • Removed --incompatible_no_build_defs_pkg flag. It never fulfilled its purpose because --all_incompatible_changes would never set it. The last rule it gated (pkg_tar) is scheduled to be removed in Bazel 6.x.
  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.
  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).
  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.
  • The default dexer is now d8. dx can be optionally enabled using: --define=android_dexmerger_tool=dx_dexmerger
    --define=android_incremental_dexing_tool=dx_dexbuilder
    --define=android_standalone_dexing_tool=dx_compat_dx
    --use_workers_with_dexbuilder
  • Packaging support for deploy JAR embedded JDK files (hermetic Java).
  • Don't stamp cc_common.link actions for tool dependencies.
  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.
  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.
  • Allow specialization to work with constraint_values.
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • Make ijar / java_import preserve classes with @kotlin.Metadata annotations
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Add devtools/build/lib/worker:work_request_handlers to the remote android tools release package. This will be transitively packaged into all_android_tools.
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.
  • Advance android_tools_pkg version to 0.24.0.
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • “blaze config” now only reports info from the last build. To compare configurations across multiple builds, redirect “blaze config” output to a file and run your favorite diff tool.
  • The --incompatible_override_toolchain_transition flag is now always set, and will be removed in the future. Thus, --noincompatible_override_toolchain_transition has no effect, and the value of the incompatible_use_toolchain_transition parameter in aspect() and rule() builtins is ignored.
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Toolchain types may now be optional, in addition to mandatory. See https://bazel.build/docs/toolchains#optional-toolchains for further details.
  • Add six to deps of has_services=1 py_proto_librarys.
  • pkg_tar(symlinks) has been removed. Users needing that feature should migrate to @rules_pkg.
  • Aspects can now define and use exec groups using the same API as rules.
  • Removed the obsolete --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag. The feature is permanently enabled.
  • embedded_tools packages R8 desugarer again
  • Bazel now selects sh path based on execution platform instead of host platform, making it possible to execute sh actions in multiplatform builds. --shell_executable now only applies to actions configured for host.
  • labels in genquery.scope are no longer configured.
  • When Bzlmod is enabled, all Bzlmod-generated repos will have an extra ‘@’ prepended to their names. This effectively enables the canonical label literal syntax for Bzlmod-generated repos (@@canonicalRepoName//pkg:target; see https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N81qfCa8oskCk5LqTW-LNthy6EBrDo t7bdUsjz6JFC4/edit?usp=sharing).
  • Exposed CcSharedLibraryInfo to Starlark builtins.
  • Enable --use_top_level_targets_for_symlinks by default.
  • Singlejar accepts runtime Created-By field
  • --noincompatible_disable_managed_directories, and with that, workspace(managed_directories=) is not supported anymore.
  • Bazel supports D8 desugaring, albeit without persistent workers
  • Remove mtime options from pkg_tar. Users should migrate to @rules_pkg.
  • Test for experimental multiplexed persistent resource processor.
  • Added new register_{execution_platforms,toolchains} directives to the MODULE.bazel file, to replace the {execution_platforms,toolchains}_to_register attributes on the module() directive.
  • The legacy pkg_tar no longer supports the ability to untar and repackage an input tar file (deps attribute). Users needed that capability must switch to github.com/bazelbuild/rules_pkg.
  • cquery's new output mode --output=files lists the output files of the targets matching the query. It takes the current value of --output_groups into account.
  • Change singlejar metadata to report Created-By Bazel
  • Add support for fetching RPC credentials from credential helper.
  • Revert interface_deps back to implementation_deps after problem reported in. Use buildozer 'rename deps implementation_deps' //...:%cc_library; buildozer 'rename interface_deps deps' //...:%cc_library
  • Fix for desugaring failure on Bazel+Android+Windows build scenario.
  • D8 is the default desugarer
  • Migrate main_dex_list_creator to D8 (DX deprecation)

Baseline: fbf9277975ceb7be5255fd5cf449e22706d25d3f

Important changes:

  • Removed the obsolete --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag. The feature is permanently enabled.
  • embedded_tools packages R8 desugarer again
  • Bazel now selects sh path based on execution platform instead of host platform, making it possible to execute sh actions in multiplatform builds. --shell_executable now only applies to actions configured for host.
  • labels in genquery.scope are no longer configured.
  • When Bzlmod is enabled, all Bzlmod-generated repos will have an extra ‘@’ prepended to their names. This effectively enables the canonical label literal syntax for Bzlmod-generated repos (@@canonicalRepoName//pkg:target; see https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N81qfCa8oskCk5LqTW-LNthy6EBrDo t7bdUsjz6JFC4/edit?usp=sharing).
  • Exposed CcSharedLibraryInfo to Starlark builtins.
  • Enable --use_top_level_targets_for_symlinks by default.
  • Singlejar accepts runtime Created-By field
  • --noincompatible_disable_managed_directories, and with that, workspace(managed_directories=) is not supported anymore.
  • Bazel supports D8 desugaring, albeit without persistent workers
  • Remove mtime options from pkg_tar. Users should migrate to @rules_pkg.
  • Test for experimental multiplexed persistent resource processor.

Baseline: 93f6e51a8756021f6e6a027d4520415385fe9293

Incompatible changes:

  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since the path would refer to a netrc file inside the external repository by absolute path. Migration should be straightforward.
  • genrule switched to use exec transition instead of host. This can break targets with hardcoded output paths. To avoid using hardcoded paths use make variables, see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/4.2.2/be/make-variables.html#pre defined_label_variables
  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since...
  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF
  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF
  • The --incompatible_existing_rules_immutable_view flag has been flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13907 for migration notes.
  • Split up the C++ archive from the C++ link action and set CppArchive as mnemonic.
  • workspace(managed_directories=) is not available anymore.
  • --legacy_important_outputs now has a default of false.
  • --legacy_important_outputs default reverted to true.
  • objc_library now requires CcInfo in its deps. If this breaks you, add empty CcInfo() to your rule.

Important changes:

  • Deprecate --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag, in preparation for removal in Bazel 6.x.
  • Treat py_*.srcs_version=“PY2” the same as “PY2ONLY”.
  • The Build Event Protocol now contains file digests and sizes along with the file name and URI.
  • Refactor system suspend event handling.
  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()
  • Allow \a \b \f \v escape sequences in Starlark.
  • Match remote and local xcode version by most granular version.
  • Adds --experimental_worker_multiplex_sandboxing flag that controls whether to sandbox multiplex workers that support it.
  • provider() has a new parameter: init, a callback for performing pre-processing and validation of field values. Iff this parameter is set, provider() returns a tuple of 2 elements: the usual provider symbol (which, when called, invokes init) and a raw constructor (which bypasses init).
  • Tests that fail to create or complete their TestAttemptContinuation by throwing an ExecException will report an INCOMPLETE status. Previously, Bazel would fail to report any status for the test attempt.
  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.
  • Include more information about configurations in cquery proto formatted output. This deprecates the configuration field of AnalysisProtosV2.ConfiguredTarget, and adds a new field, configuration_id, to be used instead.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • In aquery and cquery proto output, indicate if a configuration is a tool or non-tool configuration.
  • Include complete configurations in cquery proto output.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.
  • Add some documentation about how configuration information is conveyed in cquery proto output.
  • Introduces experimental static library linking API under apple_common.link_multi_arch_static_library
  • Further deprecation and removal of pkg_tar. Stop supporting legacy use of ‘files’ attribute, where it could be a list of labels instead of a map of paths to labels.
  • Removed --incompatible_no_build_defs_pkg flag. It never fulfilled its purpose because --all_incompatible_changes would never set it. The last rule it gated (pkg_tar) is scheduled to be removed in Bazel 6.x.
  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.
  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).
  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.
  • The default dexer is now d8. dx can be optionally enabled using: --define=android_dexmerger_tool=dx_dexmerger
    --define=android_incremental_dexing_tool=dx_dexbuilder
    --define=android_standalone_dexing_tool=dx_compat_dx
    --use_workers_with_dexbuilder
  • Packaging support for deploy JAR embedded JDK files (hermetic Java).
  • Don't stamp cc_common.link actions for tool dependencies.
  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.
  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.
  • Allow specialization to work with constraint_values.
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • Make ijar / java_import preserve classes with @kotlin.Metadata annotations
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Add devtools/build/lib/worker:work_request_handlers to the remote android tools release package. This will be transitively packaged into all_android_tools.
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.
  • Advance android_tools_pkg version to 0.24.0.
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • “blaze config” now only reports info from the last build. To compare configurations across multiple builds, redirect “blaze config” output to a file and run your favorite diff tool.
  • The --incompatible_override_toolchain_transition flag is now always set, and will be removed in the future. Thus, --noincompatible_override_toolchain_transition has no effect, and the value of the incompatible_use_toolchain_transition parameter in aspect() and rule() builtins is ignored.
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Toolchain types may now be optional, in addition to mandatory. See https://bazel.build/docs/toolchains#optional-toolchains for further details.
  • Add six to deps of has_services=1 py_proto_librarys.
  • pkg_tar(symlinks) has been removed. Users needing that feature should migrate to @rules_pkg.

Important changes:

  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13047.

    Closes #14310.

  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.

  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.

  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.

  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).

    Closes #14971.

  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.

    Closes #14849.

Release 6.0.0-pre.20220526.1 (2022-06-02)

Baseline: e6bb6fcfcc9b571ef0bbdf039b5ae67954ade222

Incompatible changes:

  • --legacy_important_outputs now has a default of false.
  • --legacy_important_outputs default reverted to true.

Important changes:

  • pkg_tar(symlinks) has been removed. Users needing that feature should migrate to @rules_pkg.

Release 6.0.0-pre.20220520.1 (2022-05-30)

Baseline: 4879106fabdf4af9395743941987d4297d232296

Incompatible changes:

Release 6.0.0-pre.20220517.1 (2022-05-23)

Baseline: 61fd06d92706d64fbcef64f0f54cded91c88afff

Incompatible changes:

  • Split up the C++ archive from the C++ link action and set CppArchive as mnemonic.

Important changes:

  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Bazel uses the D8 jar from Maven instead of the SDK.
  • “blaze config” now only reports info from the last build. To compare configurations across multiple builds, redirect “blaze config” output to a file and run your favorite diff tool.
  • The --incompatible_override_toolchain_transition flag is now always set, and will be removed in the future. Thus, --noincompatible_override_toolchain_transition has no effect, and the value of the incompatible_use_toolchain_transition parameter in aspect() and rule() builtins is ignored.
  • Switch cc_test implementation to Starlark. Note: cc_test will now link statically when targeting Windows regardless of host platform (rather than always linking statically when Windows is the host).
  • Toolchain types may now be optional, in addition to mandatory. See https://bazel.build/docs/toolchains#optional-toolchains for further details.

Release 6.0.0-pre.20220407.1 (2022-04-14)

Baseline: 9db58e0656d7456e8180e90400c2c94a76bf5c8b

Incompatible changes:

  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since the path would refer to a netrc file inside the external repository by absolute path. Migration should be straightforward.
  • genrule switched to use exec transition instead of host. This can break targets with hardcoded output paths. To avoid using hardcoded paths use make variables, see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/4.2.2/be/make-variables.html#pre defined_label_variables
  • this incompatible change breaks old instances of http_archive that specified netrc as an absolute path. It is unlikely there are many instances in the wild since...
  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF
  • Error Prone now checks for unused return values of additional methods on java.lang.Object, which can be disabled using --javacopts=-Xep:ReturnValueIgnored:OFF
  • The --incompatible_existing_rules_immutable_view flag has been flipped to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13907 for migration notes.

Important changes:

  • Deprecate --incompatible_applicable_licenses flag, in preparation for removal in Bazel 6.x.
  • Treat py_*.srcs_version=“PY2” the same as “PY2ONLY”.
  • The Build Event Protocol now contains file digests and sizes along with the file name and URI.
  • Refactor system suspend event handling.
  • alias() can now select() directly on constraint_value()
  • Allow \a \b \f \v escape sequences in Starlark.
  • Match remote and local xcode version by most granular version.
  • Adds --experimental_worker_multiplex_sandboxing flag that controls whether to sandbox multiplex workers that support it.
  • provider() has a new parameter: init, a callback for performing pre-processing and validation of field values. Iff this parameter is set, provider() returns a tuple of 2 elements: the usual provider symbol (which, when called, invokes init) and a raw constructor (which bypasses init).
  • Tests that fail to create or complete their TestAttemptContinuation by throwing an ExecException will report an INCOMPLETE status. Previously, Bazel would fail to report any status for the test attempt.
  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.
  • Include more information about configurations in cquery proto formatted output. This deprecates the configuration field of AnalysisProtosV2.ConfiguredTarget, and adds a new field, configuration_id, to be used instead.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • In aquery and cquery proto output, indicate if a configuration is a tool or non-tool configuration.
  • Include complete configurations in cquery proto output.
  • experimental cc_library.implementation_deps inverted to interface_deps
  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.
  • Add some documentation about how configuration information is conveyed in cquery proto output.
  • Introduces experimental static library linking API under apple_common.link_multi_arch_static_library
  • Further deprecation and removal of pkg_tar. Stop supporting legacy use of ‘files’ attribute, where it could be a list of labels instead of a map of paths to labels.
  • Removed --incompatible_no_build_defs_pkg flag. It never fulfilled its purpose because --all_incompatible_changes would never set it. The last rule it gated (pkg_tar) is scheduled to be removed in Bazel 6.x.
  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.
  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).
  • android_sdk_repository read $ANDROID_SDK_ROOT in addition to $ANDROID_HOME.
  • The default dexer is now d8. dx can be optionally enabled using: --define=android_dexmerger_tool=dx_dexmerger
    --define=android_incremental_dexing_tool=dx_dexbuilder
    --define=android_standalone_dexing_tool=dx_compat_dx
    --use_workers_with_dexbuilder
  • Packaging support for deploy JAR embedded JDK files (hermetic Java).
  • Don't stamp cc_common.link actions for tool dependencies.
  • Starlark test rules can use the new inherited_environment parameter of testing.TestEnvironment to specify environment variables whose values should be inherited from the shell environment.
  • Enable merging permissions during Android manifest merging with the --merge_android_manifest_permissions flag.

Important changes:

    Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13047.

    Closes #14310.

  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.

  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.

  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.

  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).

    Closes #14971.

  • Fixed an issue where Bazel could erroneously report a test passes in coverage mode without actually running the test.

  • Make protocOpts() publicly accessible.

  • Add coverage configuration fragment, used to expose output_generator label.

  • Bazel now no longer includes system headers on macOS in coverage reports (#14969).

    Closes #14971.

Release 5.0.0-pre.20210826.1 (2021-09-03)

Baseline: f53c389dbd4b0ae66307e9bd4a72b36b3d284ec3

Incompatible changes:

  • Removing java_common.javac_jar Starlark call.
  • native.existing_rule now returns select values in a form that is accepted by rule instantiation. This is a breaking API change because there is some code that relies on the precise type returned, including brittle workarounds for this bug specifically and insufficiently flexible workarounds for other issues with the intersection of select and native.existing_rule.
  • flipped incompatible_use_toolchain_resolution_for_java_rules, see #7849
  • Query output=xml/proto/location for source files will now show the location of line 1 of the source file (as the new default) instead of its location in the BUILD file.
  • Specifying a target pattern underneath a directory specified by .bazelignore will now emit a warning, not an error.
  • Query --order_output=auto will now sort lexicographically. However, when somepath is used as a top level function (e.g. query 'somepath(a, b)'), it will continue to output in dependency order. If you do not want the lexicographical output ordering, specify another --order_output value (no, deps or full) based on what ordering you require.
  • In the build event stream, BuildMetrics.TargetMetrics.targets_loaded is no longer populated. Its value was always mostly meaningless. BuildMetrics.TargetMetrics.targets_configured and BuildMetrics.ActionSummary.actions_created now include configured aspect data.
  • //visibility:legacy_public has been removed.
  • Flip and remove incompatible_dont_collect_so_artifacts (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13043).
  • Remove flag --experimental_no_product_name_out_symlink: it is always true.
  • The Starlark method generate_dsym in objc fragment has been deleted. Please use the equivalent apple_generate_dsym in cpp fragment instead.
  • Native libraries in data attribute are not collected. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13550 for details
  • Enforce the --profile path to be absolute.
  • Enforce the --memory_profile path to be absolute.
  • JavaToolchainInfo.jvm_opt returns Depset instead of a list.
  • --apple_sdk has been deleted. It is a no-op.
  • --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build is now a no-op and will be deleted in a future release. Use --memory_profile=/dev/null instead.
  • Flipped --incompatible_disallow_resource_jars (see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13221).

New features:

  • Args.add_all and Args.add_joined can now accept closures in map_each if explicitly enabled via allow_closure.
  • Add --bes_header flag to pass extra headers to the BES server.

Important changes:

  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.
  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.
  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.
  • none PAIR=cmita
  • The --incompatible_load_python_rules_from_bzl flag is now a no-op.
  • Filter all (instead of just C++) source files for coverage output according to --instrumentation_filter and --instrument_test_targets.
  • The --incompatible_disable_native_apple_binary_rule flag has been added which disables the native apple_binary rule. Users who need to use apple_binary directly (if they cannot use one of the more specific Apple rules) should load it from https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_apple.
  • The Android rules' --use_singlejar_apkbuilder is now a no-op. SingleJar will always be used to build APKs.
  • dict.setdefault(key, ...) now fails if dict is frozen, even if it already contains key. This is an incompatible API change.
  • Flag --incompatible_objc_provider_remove_compile_info is removed. See #11359.
  • Starlark now permits def statements to be nested (closures).
  • native.existing_rule now returns select values in a form that is accepted by rule instantiation. This is a breaking API change, though the fallout is expected to be small.
  • Starlark now supports lambda (anonymous function) expressions.
  • The “test” and “coverage” commands no longer return 3 when a test action fails because of a system error. Instead, the exit code reflects the type of system error.
  • The undocumented ctx.expand feature no longer exists.
  • Make --legacy_dynamic_scheduler a no-op flag.
  • Multiplex persistent workers can now use the JSON protocol.
  • native.existing_rule now returns a mutable list, not a tuple, for a list-valued attributes. This is an incompatible API change.
  • Roll back change to have native.existing_rules use list instead of tuple.
  • BEP includes test suite expansions.
  • config_setting now honors visibility attribute (and defaults to //visibility:public)
  • Change the MultiArchSplitTransitionProvider to be based on platform type + CPU instead of fixed “ios_” + cpu.
  • enforce config_setting visibility. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/12932 for details.
  • add a flag to build v4 signature file
  • Added _direct_source_jars output group to Java related targets. END_PUBLIC
  • pkg_deb is no longer part of @bazel_tools//build_defs/pkg:pkg.bzl. Use https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_pkg/tree/main/pkg instead
  • Allowing the lipo operations to be conditional in the linkMultiArchBinary API for Apple binaries. Single architecture slices are now returned through AppleBinaryOutput and the Starlark API.
  • Release restriction for “-” in the package name for Python sources. Now py_binary and py_test targets can have main source file with “-” in the path.
  • Users consuming BEP may assume that a named_set_of_files event will appear before any event referencing that named_set by ID. This allows consumers to process the files for such events (eg. TargetCompleted) immediately.
  • BEP includes all files from successful actions in requested output groups. Previously, an output group's files were excluded if any file in the output group was not produced due to a failing action. Users can expect BEP output to be larger for failed builds.
  • In BEP, TargetComplete.output_group has a new field incomplete indicating that the file_sets field is missing one or more declared artifacts whose generating actions failed.
  • The flag --toolchain_resolution_debug now takes a regex argument, which is used to check which toolchain types should have debug info printed. You may use .* as an argument to keep the current behavior of debugging every toolchain type.
  • Add runfiles.merge_all() for merging a sequence of runfiles objects.
  • runfiles.merge() and merge_all() now respect --nested_set_depth_limit. If you hit the depth limit because you were calling merge() in a loop, use merge_all() on a sequence of runfiles objects instead.
  • Bazel will no longer create a bazel-out symlink if --symlink_prefix is specified: the directory pointed to via the bazel-out symlink is accessible via ${symlink_prefix}-out. If this causes problems for you, set --experimental_no_product_name_out_symlink=false in your builds and file an issue.
  • Updates worker protocol with cancellation fields, and adds experimental_worker_cancellation flag to control cancellation.
  • Simplify build failure output by always using NNN arguments.
  • trim_test_configuration now defaults to on
  • Mark genrule.srcs as a source attribute for coverage.
  • When using --allow_analysis_failures (for example, via bazel-skylib's analysistest with expect_failure = True), analysis-time failures in aspect implementation functions will now be propagated and saved in AnalysisFailureInfo, just like analysis-time failures in rules.
  • cquery --noimplicit_deps now correctly filters out resolved cc_toolchains
  • Sign apks deterministically.
  • Make gcov optional in cc_toolchain tools.
  • If --experimental_prefer_mutual_xcode is passed, Bazel will choose the local default (instead of the newest mutually available version) if it's available both locally and remotely.
  • Remove java_lite_proto_library.strict_deps attribute.
  • Generate proguard configurations deterministically.
  • Adds a new flag, --incompatible_enable_cc_test_feature which switches from the use of build variables to the feature of the same name.
  • Dropped fragile xz support from built in pkg_tar. Users requiring xz compression should switch to bazlebuild/rules_pkg.
  • If all strategies of one branch (the local or remote execution branch) of the dynamic strategy fail to even accept (via the response they give from canExec) the action, dynamic will now try to see if the other branch can accept it. (Trying to run it and it failing will still cause a failure if it was the first result, this is about strategies claiming they can't even try the action)
  • Add disable_annotation_processing option to java_common.compile, which disables any annotation processors passed to plugins or in exported_plugins of deps
  • Remove obsolete --incompatible_prohibit_aapt1
  • The minimum Android build tools version for the Android rules is now 30.0.0
  • Adds --experimental_reuse_sandbox_directories flag to reuse already-created non-worker sandboxes with cleanup.
  • --experimental_force_gc_after_build is deprecated and will be removed soon. Use --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build instead
  • Forward coverage-instrumented files from non-tool dependencies by default.
  • The used_heap_size_post_build field in BEP is populated when the --memory_profile flag is set
  • --run_validations defaults to true.
  • Consider label_keyed_string_dict attributes when gathering instrumented files for coverage.
  • Remove flag --experimental_forward_instrumented_files_info_by_default, now that this behavior is the default.
  • When using MemoryProfiler with multiple GCs via the --memory_profile_stable_heap_parameters flag, we do a more precise calculation of heap used at the end of the build. This will generally result in lower values.
  • --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build is deprecated. Use --memory_profile=/dev/null instead.
  • Disable --all_incompatible_changes flag.

   + a689d673abadf80f1efaf8ddaeee92d56fc2847b:
     Use getRunfilesPath for run_under executable path generation.

     issue #12545.

  • Updates worker protocol with cancellation fields, and adds experimental_worker_cancellation flag to control cancellation.
  • If all strategies of one branch (the local or remote execution branch) of the dynamic strategy fail to even accept (via the response they give from canExec) the action, dynamic will now try to see if the other branch can accept it. (Trying to run it and it failing will still cause a failure if it was the first result, this is about strategies claiming they can't even try the action)

     Add incompatible flag to guard top-level aspects dependencies

Incompatible changes:

  • Removing java_common.javac_jar Starlark call.
  • native.existing_rule now returns select values in a form that is accepted by rule instantiation. This is a breaking API change because there is some code that relies on the precise type returned, including brittle workarounds for this bug specifically and insufficiently flexible workarounds for other issues with the intersection of select and native.existing_rule.
  • flipped incompatible_use_toolchain_resolution_for_java_rules, see #7849
  • Query output=xml/proto/location for source files will now show the location of line 1 of the source file (as the new default) instead of its location in the BUILD file.
  • Specifying a target pattern underneath a directory specified by .bazelignore will now emit a warning, not an error.
  • Query --order_output=auto will now sort lexicographically. However, when somepath is used as a top level function (e.g. query 'somepath(a, b)'), it will continue to output in dependency order. If you do not want the lexicographical output ordering, specify another --order_output value (no, deps or full) based on what ordering you require.
  • In the build event stream, BuildMetrics.TargetMetrics.targets_loaded is no longer populated. Its value was always mostly meaningless. BuildMetrics.TargetMetrics.targets_configured and BuildMetrics.ActionSummary.actions_created now include configured aspect data.
  • //visibility:legacy_public has been removed.
  • Flip and remove incompatible_dont_collect_so_artifacts (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13043).
  • Remove flag --experimental_no_product_name_out_symlink: it is always true.
  • The Starlark method generate_dsym in objc fragment has been deleted. Please use the equivalent apple_generate_dsym in cpp fragment instead.
  • Native libraries in data attribute are not collected. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13550 for details
  • Enforce the --profile path to be absolute.
  • Enforce the --memory_profile path to be absolute.
  • JavaToolchainInfo.jvm_opt returns Depset instead of a list.
  • --apple_sdk has been deleted. It is a no-op.

Important changes:

  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.
  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.
  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.
  • none PAIR=cmita
  • The --incompatible_load_python_rules_from_bzl flag is now a no-op.
  • Filter all (instead of just C++) source files for coverage output according to --instrumentation_filter and --instrument_test_targets.
  • The --incompatible_disable_native_apple_binary_rule flag has been added which disables the native apple_binary rule. Users who need to use apple_binary directly (if they cannot use one of the more specific Apple rules) should load it from https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_apple.
  • The Android rules' --use_singlejar_apkbuilder is now a no-op. SingleJar will always be used to build APKs.
  • dict.setdefault(key, ...) now fails if dict is frozen, even if it already contains key. This is an incompatible API change.
  • Flag --incompatible_objc_provider_remove_compile_info is removed. See #11359.
  • Starlark now permits def statements to be nested (closures).
  • native.existing_rule now returns select values in a form that is accepted by rule instantiation. This is a breaking API change, though the fallout is expected to be small.
  • Starlark now supports lambda (anonymous function) expressions.
  • The “test” and “coverage” commands no longer return 3 when a test action fails because of a system error. Instead, the exit code reflects the type of system error.
  • The undocumented ctx.expand feature no longer exists.
  • Make --legacy_dynamic_scheduler a no-op flag.
  • Multiplex persistent workers can now use the JSON protocol.
  • native.existing_rule now returns a mutable list, not a tuple, for a list-valued attributes. This is an incompatible API change.
  • Roll back change to have native.existing_rules use list instead of tuple.
  • BEP includes test suite expansions.
  • config_setting now honors visibility attribute (and defaults to //visibility:public)
  • Change the MultiArchSplitTransitionProvider to be based on platform type + CPU instead of fixed “ios_” + cpu.
  • enforce config_setting visibility. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/12932 for details.
  • add a flag to build v4 signature file
  • Added _direct_source_jars output group to Java related targets. END_PUBLIC
  • pkg_deb is no longer part of @bazel_tools//build_defs/pkg:pkg.bzl. Use https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_pkg/tree/main/pkg instead
  • Allowing the lipo operations to be conditional in the linkMultiArchBinary API for Apple binaries. Single architecture slices are now returned through AppleBinaryOutput and the Starlark API.
  • Release restriction for “-” in the package name for Python sources. Now py_binary and py_test targets can have main source file with “-” in the path.
  • Users consuming BEP may assume that a named_set_of_files event will appear before any event referencing that named_set by ID. This allows consumers to process the files for such events (eg. TargetCompleted) immediately.
  • BEP includes all files from successful actions in requested output groups. Previously, an output group's files were excluded if any file in the output group was not produced due to a failing action. Users can expect BEP output to be larger for failed builds.
  • In BEP, TargetComplete.output_group has a new field incomplete indicating that the file_sets field is missing one or more declared artifacts whose generating actions failed.
  • The flag --toolchain_resolution_debug now takes a regex argument, which is used to check which toolchain types should have debug info printed. You may use .* as an argument to keep the current behavior of debugging every toolchain type.
  • Add runfiles.merge_all() for merging a sequence of runfiles objects.
  • runfiles.merge() and merge_all() now respect --nested_set_depth_limit. If you hit the depth limit because you were calling merge() in a loop, use merge_all() on a sequence of runfiles objects instead.
  • Bazel will no longer create a bazel-out symlink if --symlink_prefix is specified: the directory pointed to via the bazel-out symlink is accessible via ${symlink_prefix}-out. If this causes problems for you, set --experimental_no_product_name_out_symlink=false in your builds and file an issue.
  • Updates worker protocol with cancellation fields, and adds experimental_worker_cancellation flag to control cancellation.
  • Simplify build failure output by always using NNN arguments.
  • trim_test_configuration now defaults to on
  • Mark genrule.srcs as a source attribute for coverage.
  • When using --allow_analysis_failures (for example, via bazel-skylib's analysistest with expect_failure = True), analysis-time failures in aspect implementation functions will now be propagated and saved in AnalysisFailureInfo, just like analysis-time failures in rules.
  • cquery --noimplicit_deps now correctly filters out resolved cc_toolchains
  • Sign apks deterministically.
  • Make gcov optional in cc_toolchain tools.
  • If --experimental_prefer_mutual_xcode is passed, Bazel will choose the local default (instead of the newest mutually available version) if it's available both locally and remotely.
  • Remove java_lite_proto_library.strict_deps attribute.
  • Generate proguard configurations deterministically.
  • Adds a new flag, --incompatible_enable_cc_test_feature which switches from the use of build variables to the feature of the same name.
  • Dropped fragile xz support from built in pkg_tar. Users requiring xz compression should switch to bazlebuild/rules_pkg.
  • If all strategies of one branch (the local or remote execution branch) of the dynamic strategy fail to even accept (via the response they give from canExec) the action, dynamic will now try to see if the other branch can accept it. (Trying to run it and it failing will still cause a failure if it was the first result, this is about strategies claiming they can't even try the action)
  • Add disable_annotation_processing option to java_common.compile, which disables any annotation processors passed to plugins or in exported_plugins of deps
  • Remove obsolete --incompatible_prohibit_aapt1
  • The minimum Android build tools version for the Android rules is now 30.0.0
  • Adds --experimental_reuse_sandbox_directories flag to reuse already-created non-worker sandboxes with cleanup.
  • --experimental_force_gc_after_build is deprecated and will be removed soon. Use --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build instead
  • Forward coverage-instrumented files from non-tool dependencies by default.
  • The used_heap_size_post_build field in BEP is populated when the --memory_profile flag is set
  • --run_validations defaults to true.
  • Consider label_keyed_string_dict attributes when gathering instrumented files for coverage.
  • Remove flag --experimental_forward_instrumented_files_info_by_default, now that this behavior is the default.
  • When using MemoryProfiler with multiple GCs via the --memory_profile_stable_heap_parameters flag, we do a more precise calculation of heap used at the end of the build. This will generally result in lower values.
  • --bep_publish_used_heap_size_post_build is deprecated. Use --memory_profile=/dev/null instead.

  • enforce config_setting visibility. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/12932 for details.
  • The minimum Android build tools version for the Android rules is now 30.0.0
  • Updates worker protocol with cancellation fields, and adds experimental_worker_cancellation flag to control cancellation.
  • If all strategies of one branch (the local or remote execution branch) of the dynamic strategy fail to even accept (via the response they give from canExec) the action, dynamic will now try to see if the other branch can accept it. (Trying to run it and it failing will still cause a failure if it was the first result, this is about strategies claiming they can't even try the action)

Incompatible changes:

  • Removing java_common.javac_jar Starlark call.
  • native.existing_rule now returns select values in a form that is accepted by rule instantiation. This is a breaking API change because there is some code that relies on the precise type returned, including brittle workarounds for this bug specifically and insufficiently flexible workarounds for other issues with the intersection of select and native.existing_rule.
  • flipped incompatible_use_toolchain_resolution_for_java_rules, see #7849
  • Query output=xml/proto/location for source files will now show the location of line 1 of the source file (as the new default) instead of its location in the BUILD file.
  • Specifying a target pattern underneath a directory specified by .bazelignore will now emit a warning, not an error.
  • Query --order_output=auto will now sort lexicographically. However, when somepath is used as a top level function (e.g. query 'somepath(a, b)'), it will continue to output in dependency order. If you do not want the lexicographical output ordering, specify another --order_output value (no, deps or full) based on what ordering you require.
  • In the build event stream, BuildMetrics.TargetMetrics.targets_loaded is no longer populated. Its value was always mostly meaningless. BuildMetrics.TargetMetrics.targets_configured and BuildMetrics.ActionSummary.actions_created now include configured aspect data.
  • //visibility:legacy_public has been removed.
  • Flip and remove incompatible_dont_collect_so_artifacts (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/13043).
  • Remove flag --experimental_no_product_name_out_symlink: it is always true.
  • The Starlark method generate_dsym in objc fragment has been deleted. Please use the equivalent apple_generate_dsym in cpp fragment instead.

Important changes:

  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.
  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.
  • Flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is removed. See #10854.
  • none PAIR=cmita
  • The --incompatible_load_python_rules_from_bzl flag is now a no-op.
  • Filter all (instead of just C++) source files for coverage output according to --instrumentation_filter and --instrument_test_targets.
  • The --incompatible_disable_native_apple_binary_rule flag has been added which disables the native apple_binary rule. Users who need to use apple_binary directly (if they cannot use one of the more specific Apple rules) should load it from https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_apple.
  • The Android rules' --use_singlejar_apkbuilder is now a no-op. SingleJar will always be used to build APKs.
  • dict.setdefault(key, ...) now fails if dict is frozen, even if it already contains key. This is an incompatible API change.
  • Flag --incompatible_objc_provider_remove_compile_info is removed. See #11359.
  • Starlark now permits def statements to be nested (closures).
  • native.existing_rule now returns select values in a form that is accepted by rule instantiation. This is a breaking API change, though the fallout is expected to be small.
  • Starlark now supports lambda (anonymous function) expressions.
  • The “test” and “coverage” commands no longer return 3 when a test action fails because of a system error. Instead, the exit code reflects the type of system error.
  • The undocumented ctx.expand feature no longer exists.
  • Make --legacy_dynamic_scheduler a no-op flag.
  • Multiplex persistent workers can now use the JSON protocol.
  • native.existing_rule now returns a mutable list, not a tuple, for a list-valued attributes. This is an incompatible API change.
  • Roll back change to have native.existing_rules use list instead of tuple.
  • BEP includes test suite expansions.
  • config_setting now honors visibility attribute (and defaults to //visibility:public)
  • Change the MultiArchSplitTransitionProvider to be based on platform type + CPU instead of fixed “ios_” + cpu.
  • enforce config_setting visibility. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/12932 for details.
  • add a flag to build v4 signature file
  • Added _direct_source_jars output group to Java related targets. END_PUBLIC
  • pkg_deb is no longer part of @bazel_tools//build_defs/pkg:pkg.bzl. Use https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_pkg/tree/main/pkg instead
  • Allowing the lipo operations to be conditional in the linkMultiArchBinary API for Apple binaries. Single architecture slices are now returned through AppleBinaryOutput and the Starlark API.
  • Release restriction for “-” in the package name for Python sources. Now py_binary and py_test targets can have main source file with “-” in the path.
  • Users consuming BEP may assume that a named_set_of_files event will appear before any event referencing that named_set by ID. This allows consumers to process the files for such events (eg. TargetCompleted) immediately.
  • BEP includes all files from successful actions in requested output groups. Previously, an output group's files were excluded if any file in the output group was not produced due to a failing action. Users can expect BEP output to be larger for failed builds.
  • In BEP, TargetComplete.output_group has a new field incomplete indicating that the file_sets field is missing one or more declared artifacts whose generating actions failed.
  • The flag --toolchain_resolution_debug now takes a regex argument, which is used to check which toolchain types should have debug info printed. You may use .* as an argument to keep the current behavior of debugging every toolchain type.
  • Add runfiles.merge_all() for merging a sequence of runfiles objects.
  • runfiles.merge() and merge_all() now respect --nested_set_depth_limit. If you hit the depth limit because you were calling merge() in a loop, use merge_all() on a sequence of runfiles objects instead.
  • Bazel will no longer create a bazel-out symlink if --symlink_prefix is specified: the directory pointed to via the bazel-out symlink is accessible via ${symlink_prefix}-out. If this causes problems for you, set --experimental_no_product_name_out_symlink=false in your builds and file an issue.
  • Updates worker protocol with cancellation fields, and adds experimental_worker_cancellation flag to control cancellation.
  • Simplify build failure output by always using NNN arguments.
  • trim_test_configuration now defaults to on
  • Mark genrule.srcs as a source attribute for coverage.
  • When using --allow_analysis_failures (for example, via bazel-skylib's analysistest with expect_failure = True), analysis-time failures in aspect implementation functions will now be propagated and saved in AnalysisFailureInfo, just like analysis-time failures in rules.
  • cquery --noimplicit_deps now correctly filters out resolved cc_toolchains
  • Sign apks deterministically.
  • Make gcov optional in cc_toolchain tools.
  • If --experimental_prefer_mutual_xcode is passed, Bazel will choose the local default (instead of the newest mutually available version) if it's available both locally and remotely.
  • Remove java_lite_proto_library.strict_deps attribute.
  • Generate proguard configurations deterministically.
  • Adds a new flag, --incompatible_enable_cc_test_feature which switches from the use of build variables to the feature of the same name.
  • Dropped fragile xz support from built in pkg_tar. Users requiring xz compression should switch to bazlebuild/rules_pkg.

Release 4.1.0 (2021-05-21)

Baseline: 37a429ad12b4c9e6a62dbae4881a1ff03b81ab40

Cherry picks:

   + a689d673abadf80f1efaf8ddaeee92d56fc2847b:
     Use getRunfilesPath for run_under executable path generation.
     getRootRelativePath doesn't return a valid runfiles path for
     external source files anymore after the recent external source
     root change. Also, it won't work for external labels either once
     the --nolegacy_external_runfiles becomes default. This fixes
     issue #12545.

Release 4.0.0 (2021-01-21)

Baseline: 37a429ad12b4c9e6a62dbae4881a1ff03b81ab40

Cherry picks:

   + a689d673abadf80f1efaf8ddaeee92d56fc2847b:
     Use getRunfilesPath for run_under executable path generation.
     getRootRelativePath doesn't return a valid runfiles path for
     external source files anymore after the recent external source
     root change. Also, it won't work for external labels either once
     the --nolegacy_external_runfiles becomes default. This fixes

     Add windows_msvc back to conditions in bazel_tools.

New features:

  • Starlark-defined flags can now be shorthanded using --flag_alias.

Important changes:

  • Add --starlark:file option. This adds a capability to the (cquery)[https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/cquery.html] feature in --output=starlark mode so that the expression to format output may be specified in a file.
  • Error messages emitted when an action fails are reworked to be more informative about the failing action. Some tooling may have to be updated as a result.
  • Querying with output=location now allows the relative_locations flag to properly display relative locations instead of the full path. Fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/3497.
  • --flag_alias can now be used without --experimental_enable_flag_alias
  • Remove no-op --deep_execroot flag
  • The BEP uses AbortReason.OUT_OF_MEMORY for abort events when the build tool is crashing due to OOM.
  • Added flag incompatible_display_source_file_location for blaze query location=output to print the location of line 1 of the actual source files instead of the source file targets. Provides a solution to https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8900.
  • The Starlark json module is now available. Use json.encode(x) to encode a Starlark value as JSON. struct.to_json(x) is deprecated and will be disabled by the --incompatible_struct_has_no_methods flag.
  • The flag --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration is enabled by default. See #10854.
  • The flag --incompatible_objc_provider_remove_compile_info is enabled by default. See #11359.
  • Add relative_ast_path feature for darwin builds to relativize swiftmodule paths for debugging
  • Use proto.encode_text(x) to encode a Starlark value as textproto. struct.to_proto() is deprecated and will be disabled by the --incompatible_struct_has_no_methods flag. Both functions now reject list/dict fields that contain list/dict elements.
  • Add --starlark:file option. This adds a capability to the (cquery)[https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/cquery.html] feature in --output=starlark mode so that the expression to format output may be specified in a file. See [Configured Query Starlark Output](//docs.google.com/document/d/1kL6Tdmp6uLBa9lq_DbUSjIC87glO zKIyPoBeF95Rs4c/edit)
  • Flipped --incompatble_proto_output_v2 for aquery.
  • The --incompatible_load_java_rules_from_bzl flag is now a no-op.
  • The --incompatible_load_proto_rules_from_bzl flag is now a no-op.
  • Flipped --incompatible_force_strict_header_check_from_starlark
  • --incompatible_string_replace_count is flipped and removed (#11244)
  • Bazel skips incompatible targets based on target platform and target_compatible_with contents. See https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/platforms.html for more details.
  • Bazel returns exit code 36 (rather than 1) if it fails to start a subprocess in a local sandbox due to environmental issues, for example, if the argument list is too long.
  • //tools/build_defs/pkg:pkg_rpm is no longer built in to Bazel. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/11218 for instructions on how to migrate to the replacement.
  • Javac now supports multiplex workers.
  • The --default_ios_provisioning_profile flag has been removed (it was a no-op).
  • Add support for using AndroidX dependencies in data-binding-enabled targets.
  • Fix data-binding generation for android_local_test.
  • Enable debug_prefix_map_pwd_is_dot feature by default on macOS, this passes -fdebug-prefix-map=$PWD=. for every compile to remove absolute paths from debug info.
  • --incompatible_run_shell_command_string is enabled by default (#5903)
  • py_binary now tolerates package paths that contain hyphens (‘-’). Note that such paths might not be importable from within Python code.
  • C++ Starlark API requires linker_inputs wrapping library_to_link. #10860
  • Toolchain rule is extended with target_settings attribute.
  • --incompatible_restrict_string_escapes=true is now the default. Unnecessary backslashes such as “.” in string literals are now an error, instead of being silently treated as “\.”. To fix the error while preserving behavior, double the backlash. However, the error is often a sign that the original code was wrong.
  • Propagate instrumented files for transitive sources of android_library and android_binary
  • --local_resources and --incompatible_remove_local_resources have been removed. If you've been setting --local resources or --incompatible_remove_local_resources=false, you must migrate to using --local_ram_resources and --local_cpu_resources instead.
  • Update rules_cc to commit b1c40e1de81913a3c40e5948f78719c28152486d
  • --incompatible_avoid_conflict_dlls=true is now the default.
  • Dynamic execution now uses the new scheduler by default.
  • Dynamic execution now uses the new scheduler by default.
  • The new dynamic scheduler is now the default.

Release 3.7.0 (2020-10-20)

Baseline: a991db7c2f66a354666388d888dcef9b0d0f70c0

Incompatible changes:

  • The syntax //foo/BUILD can no longer be used on the command line to refer to the //foo:BUILD target. Use //foo:BUILD (preferred) or foo/BUILD instead. This does not affect BUILD/bzl files, where that syntax already didn't work.
  • This removes --objc_header_scanner_tool. The flag was primarily used internally, and to our knowledge, a compatible tool was never released. Therefore this flag is believed to be unused.

New features:

  • select() directly supports constraint_value (no need for an intermediate config_setting).

Important changes:

  • Non-android targets can again be built when android_sdk_repository is present but invalid.
  • Add a build variable for -install_name / -soname.
  • Add a build variable for -install_name / -soname.
  • Include “resources” attr in dependency attributes for java_* coverage configuration.
  • --trim_test_configuration should work for almost all cases when a non-test target depends on a test.
  • Javac now supports multiplex workers.
  • Javac now supports multiplex workers.
  • Blaze now allows symbolic links that point to their own ancestor unless they are traversed recursively by e.g. a //... recursive target pattern or a recursive glob.
  • Blaze now allows symbolic links that point to their own ancestor unless they are traversed recursively by e.g. a //... recursive target pattern or a recursive glob.
  • Blaze now allows symbolic links that point to their own ancestor unless they are traversed recursively by e.g. a //... recursive target pattern or a recursive glob.

Release 3.6.0 (2020-10-06)

Baseline: aa0d97c0bfc4c09ec6f45303aa80052ba28afbd9

Cherry picks:

   + 32c88da98f301333dc447b75564459165368d418:
     Patch RuleContext for android_binary.deps to restore legacy
     behavior.
   + db9fc88fed387f09067a9250a731f8bf9ad74b05:
     android_test also needs the legacy behavior in
     RuleContext.getPrerequisites.
   + 144d5149a0c50e464dd1be0769fed2ce33ab26a4:
     Update android_sdk_repository to create a valid, but useless,
     repository
   + bb11f9235da52eb3b3e462ce0286f1a89188cb89:
     Patch upb to fix build error with gcc 10
   + 9f06be482aea3fcadeaf8fca6e48b32f224eba2e:

   + b67b75e3a62f5433d812993f3702f431b6967e86:
     Fix issue where libtool_check_unique isn't found for sandbox
     builds

Incompatible changes:

  • --experimental_ui_limit_console_output is removed. Users of --experimental_ui_limit_console_output=1 for silencing terminal output should use --ui_event_filters= instead.
  • --proto:instantiation_stack must be enabled in addition to --record_rule_instantiation_callstack to see call stack in proto output from blaze query.

New features:

  • cc_common.compile support for include_prefix/strip_include_prefix
  • Multiplexed persistent workers: Use --experimental_worker_max_multiplex_instances to configure the number of WorkRequests that are sent concurrently to one worker process. The --worker_max_instances flag will no longer be used to determine max instances for multiplex workers, since the two have different resource requirements. Multiplex workers will by default have a max instances of 8.

Important changes:

  • The prelude file (//tools/build_rules:prelude_bazel) is now processed as a Starlark module, rather than being sourced into the BUILD file textually. This may cause slight breakages depending on the content of the prelude file. (Use of the prelude file is discouraged as it will be removed in the long term.)
  • Removed --experimental_ignore_deprecated_instrumentation_spec and cleaned up the old deprecated behavior.
  • Added CODEBASE.md, a description of the Bazel codebase.
  • Removed the flag --experimental_transparent_compression.
  • Removed the flag --experimental_action_args.
  • Stop needlessly parsing WORKSPACE files from external repositories.
  • Dot (‘.’) is now allowed in workspace names. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/11837.
  • This change can cause memory and performance regressions for some builds with C++ dependencies, due to extra actions being executed. RELNOTES: None
  • Building Android apps for legacy multi-dex (pre-L) now require a main-dex list if the application does not fit into a single DEX file.
  • Puts the experimental_worker_multiplex flag to use.
  • In Starlark, the Args object supports a new parameter file format ‘flag_per_line’, compatible with the Abseil flags library.
  • The flag --incompatible_no_support_tools_in_action_inputs is removed.
  • Support for NDK 21 added
  • Bazel will now skip printing action stdout/stderr contents if they exceed --experimental_ui_max_stdouterr_memory_bytes.
  • The Starlark interpreter now correctly emits an error if the operand of the first loop in a list comprehension refers to a variable bound by a later loop, such as y in this example: [e1 for x in f(y) in e2 for y in e3] # error: undefined y ^ This may cause latent dynamic errors to become static errors.
  • Added support for a ‘supports-graceful-termination’ execution requirement and tag, which causes Bazel to send a SIGTERM to any tagged actions before sending a delayed SIGKILL. This is to give actions, and more specifically tests, a chance to clean up after themselves.
  • Non-android targets can again be built when android_sdk_repository is present but invalid.

Incompatible changes:

  • The --experimental_process_wrapper_wait_fix flag (used purely to roll out a risky bug fix) has been removed.
  • Removed the --experimental_ui_deduplicate flag.
  • Bazel now correctly prefers Xcode versions in /Applications over any other paths, which resolves an issue with accidentally picking up an Xcode version from a Time Machine backup or network disk. In the improbable case that you relied on the old behavior and Bazel now picks up Xcode from the wrong location, you can fix it by moving that Xcode version to /Applications.

New features:

  • cquery now follows aspects with --include_aspects.
  • cc_common.compile support for include_prefix/strip_include_prefix

Important changes:

  • Add support to bazel/crosstool for building arm64 on macos aka darwin
  • Add opt in ‘oso_prefix_is_pwd’ feature for Apple builds
  • Add InstrumentedFilesInfo provider to Starlark globals.
  • Fixed resource shrinking when tags are used.
  • Remove old incompatible flag --incompatible_symlinked_sandbox_expands_tree_artifacts_in_runfile s_tree.
  • Update coverage configuration for Python, filegroup, and shell script rules to distinguish between source and dependency attributes.
  • Add support to bazel/crosstool for building arm64e on macos aka darwin
  • Make filegroup always forward InstrumentedFilesProvider and not collect any sources directly.
  • Support signing key rotation in android_binary
  • Remove legacy handling of --extra_checks
  • Support signing key rotation in android_binary GO...
  • --apple_bitcode now takes an optional platform and only applies the Bitcode mode to that platform if present. The option may be provided multiple times.
  • Support signing key rotation in android_binary
  • NS_BLOCK_ASSERTIONS is now passed for all Apple architectures.
  • Major changes to reporting of Starlark errors and the call stack. (Please be alert to possible regressions, such as errors that lack relevant location information.)
  • Removed the flag --experimental_transparent_compression.
  • Removed the flag --experimental_action_args.
  • Stop needlessly parsing WORKSPACE files from external repositories.
  • Dot (‘.’) is now allowed in workspace names. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/11837.

Cherry picks:

   + a4334be50a206bf8d676a0196af11056c48ac35b:
     fixup! Gracefully handle the lack of subreaper support in Linux.

Incompatible changes:

  • This removes the short-lived --process_wrapper_extra_flags flag, which was introduced primarily to roll out a bug fix. Unfortunately, this made us inadvertently expose all of the process-wrapper's command line interface to the public, which should not have happened. Given the corner case of the utility of this flag, the lack of documentation for it, and the fact that it only appeared in a single release, we are treating this as a bug instead of a backwards compatibility breakage.

New features:

  • bazel info: Allow to specify multiple keys.
  • Support code coverage with GCC 9.

Important changes:

  • Allow InstrumentedFilesInfo fields to be read from Starlark.
  • The --starlark_cpu_profile= flag writes a profile in pprof format containing a statistical summary of CPU usage by all Starlark execution during the bazel command. Use it to identify slow Starlark functions in loading and analysis.
  • The --debug_depset_flag has been removed as it is in effect always on at no cost.
  • Rule authors should use the incompatible_use_toolchain_transition rule attribute to migrate to using the toolchain transition. jcater to udpate notes further.
  • apple_binary rules now accept the stamp attribute with the same semantics that it has in cc_binary rules.
  • --incompatible_objc_provider_remove_compile_info turns off the compile info/mege_zip Starlark APIs in ObjcProvider. See #11359.
  • The --debug_depset_flag has been removed as it is in effect always on at no cost.
  • Fix behavior of ctx.actions.write so content is written without an incorrect encoding to UTF-8. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/10174 for details.
  • Collect more performance metrics for worker execution.
  • Add flag --incompatible_force_strict_header_check_from_starlark
  • Configure coverage and runfiles for sh_library.
  • Adds --incompatible_blacklisted_protos_requires_proto_info to indicate whether proto_lang_toolchain.blacklisted_protos requires ProtoInfo.

Incompatible changes:

  • The startup option --fatal_event_bus_exceptions is now a no-op and will be removed soon.

New features:

  • Bazel offers basic completion for the fish shell.

Important changes:

  • Add configuration_field for --custom_malloc to cpp config fragment
  • Flip --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration to true. See #10854.
  • It is now possible to use different action mnemonics while still sharing the same pool of persistent workers. It requires setting a new property on the execution requirements (worker-key-mnemonic). The value overrides the action's mnemonic when it comes to reusing worker processes.
  • linkshared=1 in cc_binary no longer requires ‘.so’ or ‘.dll’ in the target name
  • Revert --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration to false. See #10854.
  • Invoke clang with the correct -target flag when building for watchOS.
  • NA
  • Add experiment flag to forward InstrumentedFilesInfo from non-tool deps by default.

  • Renamed --experimental_slim_json_profile to --slim_profile.
  • Expose ctx.attr.write Args content for analysistest when possible
  • Added aquery_differ_v2 that works with the new aquery proto output format.
  • Add new flag, ‘experimental_no_product_name_out_symlink’, to omit creating ‘-out’ symlink if user specifies ‘--symlink_prefix’ option.
  • --ram_utilization_factor is removed (as is --incompatible_remove_ram_utilization_factor). Please use --local_ram_resources.
  • Improve include scanner support for cl.exe and clang-cl command lines
  • ctx.split_attr now includes attributes with Starlark split transitions.
  • Added --incompatible_string_replace_count, to make string.replace() behave as in Python.
  • Bazel can now recursively delete non-executable but readable directories.

  • Add stamp parameter for cc_common.link to enable including build info
  • The flag --incompatible_restrict_named_params is removed.
  • The flag --incompatible_depset_union is removed.
  • Bazel uses fewer compiler flags by default when building Objective-C. In particular, Bazel no longer sets -O0, -DDEBUG=1, -fstack-protector, -fstack-protector-all, or -g in dbg mode, and Bazel no longer sets -Os, -DNDEBUG=1, -Wno-unused-variable, -Winit-self, or -Wno-extra in opt mode.

   + 586eabf419972c74fdd5fef328cfe9a259e035ed:
     Implement RemoteDownloader w/ `--experimental_remote_downloader`

Incompatible changes:

  • Flip --incompatible_remove_enabled_toolchain_types, so that rules can no longer access enabled toolchain types from the platform fragment.
  • The --incompatible_use_jdk11_as_host_javabase flag has been removed (it was flipped in Bazel 0.25.0).
  • Using JDK 9 or 10 as a --host_javabase is no longer officially supported. As always, you can use the @bazel_tools//tools/jdk:toolchain_vanilla Java toolchain to use older or newer JDKs than what Bazel currently supports.
  • --fatal_event_bus_exceptions is deprecated and should not be used. Any crashes should be reported so that they can be fixed.
  • The old-style binary profile format is no longer suppported, use the new JSON trace profile instead.

Important changes:

  • Improve the performance of creating a sandboxed execution root for workers when the number of inputs is large (>1000).
  • Treat .cu and .cl files as C++ source. CUDA or OpenCL are not natively supported and will require custom flags to compile with e.g. clang.
  • Add actions' primary output details in JSON profile and analysis_v2.proto.
  • Add --cds_archive option for embedding CDS archive into deploy JAR.
  • Add new global attribute: applicable_licenses
  • Non-test Java rules no longer require the TestConfiguration and thus --trim_test_configuration is again usable for Java builds
  • The flag --incompatible_always_check_depset_elements is enabled by default.
  • --incompatible_objc_compile_info_migration determines whether native rules can assume compile info has been migrated to CcInfo. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/10854.
  • --incompatible_remove_local_resources is true by default. Please use --local_ram_resources and --local_cpu_resources instead of --local_resources.

Release 2.2.0 (2020-03-03)

Baseline: 78055efad0917b848078bf8d97b3adfddf91128d

Incompatible changes:

  • The --[no]incompatible_windows_bashless_run_command flag is no longer supported. It was flipped in Bazel 1.0
  • The --[no]incompatible_windows_native_test_wrapper flag is no longer supported. It was flipped in Bazel 1.0

Important changes:

  • Consistent target naming style in example target names.

  • The flag --incompatible_disallow_dict_lookup_unhashable_keys is removed.
  • Include target label in Python version error message.
  • The flag --incompatible_remap_main_repo is removed.

  • Reduced the packaging time (package-bazel.sh) for the //src:bazel-dev Bazel development build target from 14s to 6s. Use //src:bazel-dev if you're iterating rapidly on a local Bazel changes, and use //src:bazel --compilation_mode=opt for release builds.
  • cquery: “//foo:bar” now means “all configured targets with label //foo:bar” instead of “choose an arbitrary configured target with label //foo:bar”. See cquery docs for details.
  • WORKSPACE and BUILD.bazel files of http_archive repositories can now be patched using the “patch_cmds” and “patches” attributes.
  • Actions with “parse” on the critical path should no longer finish in the future.
  • Flags that affect external repositories like “--override_repository” can now be addressed in bazelrc files using the “common” command, without causing commands like “bazel shutdown” to fail.
  • The flag --incompatible_disallow_unverified_http_downloads is removed.
  • Create the incompatibleApplicableLicenses flag. We plan to flip this from false to true in Bazel 4.x. Implementation to follow.
  • Treat .cu and .cl files as C++ source. CUDA or OpenCL are not natively supported and will require custom flags to compile with e.g. clang.
  • Treat .cu and .cl files as C++ source. CUDA or OpenCL are not natively supported and will require custom flags to compile with e.g. clang.
  • The --starlark_cpu_profile= flag writes a profile in pprof format containing a statistical summary of CPU usage by all Starlark execution during the bazel command. Use it to identify slow Starlark functions in loading and analysis.
  • --ram_utilization_factor will be deprecated. Please use --local_ram_resources=HOST_RAM*
  • Docs: glob() documentation is rewritten, and now it points out a pitfall of rules shadowing glob-matched files.

Release 2.1.0 (2020-02-07)

Baseline: 41ec5a28fb30a8d6c5c60194c4bb29528352cf78

Cherry picks:

   + 733ac0ff7ad1e13ab68ceb2fde694d7ab71b2366:
     Adds an alias for d8_jar_import in android.WORKSPACE.
   + c94b1474b368dedf9f68f34fad90cc8664f2b0e0:
     Automatic code cleanup.
   + 2a8cc7075f741721563efd9dc050ca3458cde30b:
     Do not fail or print errors when Shellzelisk cannot find a
     requested ?
   + bdf34d7fd9539411e93348ba25307f34362d9a42:
     Fix race when extracting the install base when Bazel runs in a
     PID namespace.
   + d381c25bb7dd205c283f7ad91cac13190d2dfede:
     Fix wrong mode of install base directory.
   + eab39cc7b5a612f891fd1e5af5b45bdc1b66e6e1:
     Disable broken test_max_open_file_descriptors.

Incompatible changes:

  • The following attributes of CcToolchainProvider, which formerly were accessible both as fields (x.f) and as methods (x.f()), are now only fields:

New features:

  • Similar to the [.bazelignore](https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/guide.html #.bazelignore) in the main repository, a .bazelignore file in external repository will cause the specified directories to be ignored by Bazel. Bazel won't try to identify any packages under the directories, but the files can still be referenced in other BUILD files.
  • bazelignore files now support line comments, e.g. “# this is a comment”

Important changes:

  • Experimental support for d8 merger is now available for use using --define=android_dexmerger_tool=d8_dexmerger.
  • Critical path run time should not have a longer run time than total execution run time.
  • Remove “please do not import” warning for cc rules.
  • x.f() is now equivalent to y=x.f; y(). That is, x.f should return the same attribute value regardless of whether it is accessed as a field or called like a method. Any arguments to the call are evaluated after the x.f operation.
  • Add desugaring support for RoleManager#addRoleHolderAsUser
  • Adds ctx.target_platform_has_constraint to allow rules to check the target platform's constraints.
  • Critical path run time should not have a longer run time than total execution run time.
  • Post new ConvenienceSymlinksIdentifiedEvent to the BuildEventProtocol when --experimental_convenience_symlinks_bep_event is enabled.
  • Keyword-only arguments are now allowed: def foo(a, *, k): pass def foo(a, *b, k): pass where k can be specified only by keyword: foo(5, k=6)
  • Generated Go protobufs now depend on //net/proto2/go:protodeps in addition to //net/proto2/go:proto
  • cquery ‘somepath’ returns more reliable results when the dep has a different configuration than the parent. To get a result for somepath(//foo, //bar) where //bar isn't in the top-level configuration, run your query with --universe_scope=//foo. See cquery docs for details.

Release 2.0.0 (2019-12-19)

Baseline: 807ed23e4f53a5e008ec823e9c23e2c9baa36d0d

Cherry picks:

   + db0e32ca6296e56e5314993fe9939bc7331768ec:
     build.sh: Fix bug in build script for RC release
   + 85e84f7812f04bc0dbc36376f31b6dd2d229b905:

     version.
   + d5ae460f1581ddf27514b4be18255481b47b4075:
     Fix a typo in bazel.sh

Incompatible changes:

Important changes:

  • --incompatible_proto_output_v2: proto v2 for aquery proto output formats, which reduces the output size compared to v1. Note that the messages' ids in v2 are in uint64 instead of string like in v1.
  • Adds --incompatible_remove_enabled_toolchain_types.
  • Package loading now consistently fails if package loading had a glob evaluation that encountered a symlink cycle or symlink infinite expansion. Previously, such package loading with such glob evaluations would fail only in some cases.
  • The --disk_cache flag can now also be used together with the gRPC remote cache.
  • An action's discover inputs runtime metrics is now categorized as parse time on the CriticalPathComponent.
  • Make the formatting example more like to the written text by adding an initial description.
  • An action's discover inputs runtime metrics is now categorized as parse time on the CriticalPathComponent.
  • Bazel's Debian package and the binary installer now include an improved wrapper that understands <WORKSPACE>/.bazelversion files and the $USE_BAZEL_VERSION environment variable. This is similar to what Bazelisk offers (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazelisk#how-does-bazelisk-know-whi ch-bazel-version-to-run-and-where-to-get-it-from), except that it works offline and integrates with apt-get.
  • We are planning to deprecate the runfiles manifest files, which aren't safe in the presence of whitespace, and also unnecessarily require local CPU when remote execution is used. This release adds --experimental_skip_runfiles_manifests to disable the generation of the input manifests (rule.manifest files) in most cases. Note that this flag has no effect on Windows by default or if --experimental_enable_runfiles is explicitly set to false.

   + dbe63b00954a25fa4405f7cbf273df78c16498dd:
     Fix some of the bazel Windows tools code to work with GCC.

This release fixes a single regression:

  • #10297: Bazel 1.2.0 does no longer run on macOS High Sierra.

It is the same code as Bazel 1.2.0, except that we rebuild the macOS release binaries with Xcode 10.2.1 to make them backwards compatible with older macOS versions again.

Release 1.2.0 (2019-11-20)

   + dbe63b00954a25fa4405f7cbf273df78c16498dd:
     Fix some of the bazel Windows tools code to work with GCC.

Incompatible changes:

  • Tree artifacts and regular artifact paths can no longer overlap.

New features:

  • Added a special “_validation” output group to enable moving “validation actions” off the critical path of builds.

Important changes:

  • The query flag “--host_deps” (commonly used as “--nohost_deps”) has been renamed to “--tool_deps”, and now also removes dependencies in any execution configuration from being reported in the query output. The previous flag name is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.
  • The cc_common.{compile,link} APIs can now be used without passing the --experimental_cc_skylark_api_enabled_packages flag.
  • A list of log paths will be provided in build output.
  • Improve runfiles documentation.
  • Improve documentation on rule outputs.
  • BUILD/.bzl execution errors cause execution to stop, even at top-level
  • Multiple Starlark validation errors are reported in a single pass.
  • Introduce --experimental_nested_set_as_skykey_threshold
  • Blaze will prevent idle sleep during test and build actions. Note that this does not affect screen savers and will not keep a laptop awake if the user forces sleep or closes the lid. This is purely to avoid idle sleeping when the user is not interacting with the device.
  • Improve testing docs.
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_validate_top_level_header_inclusions has been added. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/10047 for details.
  • Fix an aquery bug with handling malformed queries that crashes bazel.
  • List fields on CcLinkingOutputs.
  • [Python] Added flag --incomaptible_default_to_explicit_init_py to switch the default value of legacy_create_init to True. With this flag enabled, your py_binary and py_test targets will no longer behave as if empty init.py files were implicitly littered in your runfiles tree. See #10076.
  • Fix documentation on allowed target names.
  • --target_platform_fallback now also applies to exec/host configurations
  • android_binary and android_libary can now depend on targets providing CcInfos.
  • Add support for tracking suspensions (sleeps or SIGSTOP) on macOS.
  • d8 dexers (both standalone and incremental) are now available for use.
  • Add Desugar support for FreezePeriod#

  • config_setting can now check multiple values on “--foo=firstVal --foo=secondVal ...”-style flags
  • tags: use --experimental_allow_tags_propagation flag to propagate tags to the action's execution requirements from targets. Such tags should start with: no-, requires-, supports-, block-, disable-, cpu:. See #8830 for details.
  • Users can now get generated def file from cc_library via “def_file” output group on Windows.
  • Platform-specific bazelrc: with --enable_platform_specific_config you can enable flags in bazelrc according to your host platform.
  • tags: use --experimental_allow_tags_propagation flag to propagate tags to the action's execution requirements from cc_library or cc_binary targets. Such tags should start with: no-, requires-, supports-, block-, disable-, cpu:. See #8830 for details.
  • tags: use --experimental_allow_tags_propagation flag to propagate tags to the action's execution requirements from java targets. Such tags should start with: no-, requires-, supports-, block-, disable-, cpu:. See #8830 for details.

Important changes:

  • The flag incompatible_disallow_hashing_frozen_mutables is enabled (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7800)
  • maven_jar and maven_server now disallow using plain HTTP URLs without a specified checksum. If you are still using maven_jar, consider migrating to [rules_jvm_external](https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_jvm_ext ernal) for transitive dependency management. See #8607 for more information.
  • Added sha256 and sha256_src attributes to maven_jar. Please consider migrating to SHA-256 as SHA-1 has been deemed cryptographically insecure (https://shattered.io).

Important changes:

  • rule_test: fix Bazel 0.27 regression (“tags” attribute was ingored, https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8723
  • Adds --incompatible_enable_execution_transition, which enables incremental migration of host attributes to exec attributes.
  • objc_proto_library rule has been deleted from Bazel.
  • repository_ctx.read is no longer restricted to files in the repository contructed.
  • tags ‘no-remote’, ‘no-cache’, ‘no-remote-cache’, ‘no-remote-exec’, ‘no-sandbox’ are propagated now to the actions from targets when ‘--ncompatible_allow_tags_propagation’ flag set to true. See #8830.
  • Adds flag --//tools/build_defs/pkg:incompatible_no_build_defs_pkg. This flag turns off the rules //tools/build_defs/pkg:{pkg_deb, pkg_rpm, pkg_tar}.
  • The Android NDK is now integrated with toolchains. To use them, pass the --extra_toolchains=@androidndk//:all flag or register them in your WORKSPACE with register_toolchains("@androidndk//:all").
  • Stdout and stderr are checked to determine if output is going to a terminal. --is_stderr_atty is deprecated and --isatty is undeprecated.
  • --incompatible_load_proto_rules_from_bzl was added to forbid loading the native proto rules directly. See more on tracking issue #8922
  • Docker Sandbox now respects remote_default_platform_properties
  • pkg_deb, pkg_rpm & pkg_tar deprecation plan announced in the documentation.
  • The new java_tools release:
    • fixes https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8614
    • exposes a new toolchain @java_tools//:prebuilt_toolchain which is using all the pre-built tools, including singlejar and ijar, even on remote execution. This toolchain should be used only when host and execution platform are the same, otherwise the binaries will not work on the execution platform.
  • java_common.compile supports specifying annotation_processor_additional_inputs and annotation_processor_additional_outputs for the Java compilation action for supporting annotation processors that consume or produce artifacts. Fixes #6415
  • There is now documentation on optimizing Android app build performance. Read it at https://docs.bazel.build/versions/0.29.0/android-build-performance .html
  • Execution log now respects --remote_default_platform_properties
  • Include a link to the relevant documenation on transitive Python version errors.
  • New incompatible flag --incompatible_disable_target_provider_fields removes the ability (in Starlark) to access a target's providers via the field syntax (for example, ctx.attr.dep.my_provider). The provider-key syntax should be used instead (for example, ctx.attr.dep[MyProvider]). See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/9014 for details.
  • A new platform exec_properties is added to replace remote_execution_properties.
  • Added --incompatible_load_python_rules_from_bzl, which will be flipped in Bazel 1.0. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/9006.

Cherry picks:

   + 6d0b14b95a71175362030b4811ca74512b00a890:
     rule_test: apply "tags" to all rules in the macro

Incompatible changes:

  • Add --incompatible_enable_profile_by_default to enable the JSON profile by default.
  • The --incompatible_windows_style_arg_escaping flag is flipped to “true”, and the “false” case unsupported. Bazel no longer accepts this flag.

Important changes:

  • Bazel now supports hiding compiler warnings for targets that you're not explicitly building (see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/user-manual.html#flag--au to_output_filter).
  • Flag --incompatible_restrict_escape_sequences is added. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8380
  • The “info” command now supports the “starlark-semantics” argument, which outputs a representation of the effective Starlark semantics option values.
  • The outputs parameter of the rule() function is deprecated and attached to flag --incompatible_no_rule_outputs_param. Migrate rules to use OutputGroupInfo or attr.output instead. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7977 for more info.
  • When --incompatible_strict_action_env is enabled, the default PATH now includes /usr/local/bin.
  • Turn on --experimental_build_setting_api by default for starlark build settings (see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/config.html#user- defined-build-settings for more info)
  • @bazel_tools//tools/jdk:toolchain_java10 and @bazel_tools//tools/jdk:toolchain_java11 are now available to enable java 10, respectively java 11 language level support.
  • The command parameter of the actions.run_shell() function will be restricted to only accept strings (and not string sequences). This check is attached to flag --incompatible_run_shell_command_string. One may migrate by using the arguments parameter of actions.run() instead. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/5903 for more info.
  • Incompatible change --incompatible_use_platforms_repo_for_constraints has been added. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8622 for details.
  • Incompatible change --incompatible_use_platforms_repo_for_constraints has been added. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8622 f...
  • Bazel's C++ autoconfiguration now understands BAZEL_LINKLIBS environment variable to specify system libraries that should be appended to the link command line.
  • paths under the execution root starting with “.” or “_” will be re-linked across builds
  • execution_log_json_file now allows actions without outputs.
  • Labels aapt as deprecated for aapt_version, and heavily endorses aapt2.
  • Update doc links still pointing to cc_binary.features to point to common features
  • Incompatible change --incompatible_use_platforms_repo_for_constraints has been added. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8622 for details. RELNOTES:
  • --incompatible_disable_nocopts flag has been added. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8706 for details.
  • Fixed treatment of <dist:module /> tags in AndroidManifest.xml

  • Bazel can now be bootstrapped and built on arm64 platforms without requiring any flags or patches.
  • Fixed treatment of AndroidManifest.xml attributes which contained XML escaping
  • Retire experimental blaze flag experimental_link_compile_output_separately. The same behavior is available through the feature dynamic_link_test_srcs.
  • --incompatible_load_java_rules_from_bzl was added to forbid loading the native java rules directly. See more on tracking issue #8746
  • Turn on --experimental_build_setting_api by default for starlark build settings (see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/config.html#user- defined-build-settings for more info)
  • Attribute names are going to be restricted and must be syntactically valid identifiers. https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6437

Incompatible changes:

  • --incompatible_disable_objc_provider_resources no longer has effect. Use of deprecated resource fields on the Objc provider is now disallowed regardless of this flag.
  • deleted deprecated --experimental-remote-retry* flags, please use --remote_retries instead
  • flipped --incompatible_list_based_execution_strategy_selection flag to be true by default. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7480 for details.
  • Octal integer literals in Starlark are required to start with “Oo”.
  • The “native” module is no longer available in BUILD files, all its members can be accessed directly as global symbols. This can be temporarily reverted by providing --incompatible_disallow_native_in_build_file=false as a flag to Blaze.
  • The “native” module is no longer available in BUILD files, all its members can be accessed directly as global symbols. This can be temporarily reverted by providing --incompatible_disallow_native_in_build_file=false as a flag to Blaze.
  • Turn off binary style profile format.
  • The “native” module is no longer available in BUILD files, all its members can be accessed directly as global symbols. This can be temporarily reverted by providing --incompatible_disallow_native_in_build_f...
  • cleanup that affects user provided apple frameworks is now enabled by default. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7944 for more info.
  • Python rules now determine the Python runtime using toolchains rather than --python_top and --python_path, which are deprecated. See #7899 for information on declaring Python toolchains and migrating your code. As a side-benefit, this addresses #4815 (incorrect interpreter version used) on non-Windows platforms. Note however that some builds break due to getting the version they asked for -- consider setting python_version = "PY2" on Python 2 targets and --host_force_python=PY2 if any Python 2 targets are used in the host configuration. You can temporarily opt out of this change with --incompatible_use_python_toolchains=false.
  • Depsets can‘t be iterated over unless they’re converted to lists using the .to_list() method. Use --incompatible_depset_is_not_iterable=false to temporarily restore the previous behaviour.

New features:

  • Bash, runfiles: the copy-pasted init code of the Bash runfiles library is now shorter, see tools/bash/runfiles/runfiles.bash. The rlocation() implementation is the same.
  • Bash, runfiles: the copy-pasted init code of the Bash runfiles library is now shorter, see tools/bash/runfiles/runfiles.bash. The rlocation() implementation is the same.
  • Bash, runfiles: the copy-pasted init code of the Bash runfiles library is now shorter, see tools/bash/runfiles/runfiles.bash. To use the new init code, you need Bazel 0.27 or newer. The old (longer) init code still works.

Important changes:

  • The outputs parameter of the rule() function is deprecated and attached to flag --incompatible_no_rule_outputs_param. Migrate rules to use OutputGroupInfo or attr.output instead. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7977 for more info.
  • The --incompatible_disable_objc_library_resources flag is being removed. Please remove it from your configs as it otherwise will fail the build.
  • Add a generic additional_linker_inputs attribute on cc_binary rules.
  • Windows, C++ autoconfigure: BAZEL_VC and BAZEL_VS may now have quotes, so if you set these envvars' values in cmd.exe via TAB-completion then you no longer need to remove the surrounding quotes.
  • pkg_deb has new attributes: config and templates that can be used for integration with debconf
  • Allow cc_import() of a DLL with no interface library on Windows, used to document runtime dependencies.
  • All host-configured Python tools that are built for the wrong Python version will now emit a warning message when they exit with non-zero status. See #7899.
  • deprecated --remote_local_fallback_strategy. Use --strategy=remote,local instead. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7480.
  • Introduce --incompatible_disable_native_android_rules flag
  • The Android desugaring actions now support a persistent worker mode for faster local build performance. Enable it with --strategy=Desugar=worker.
  • --incompatible_static_name_resolution_in_build_files is now enabled by default
  • --incompatible_disable_deprecated_attr_params is now enabled by default (#5818)
  • Repository containing autoconfigured C++ toolchain @local_config_cc has been split in 2 - see local_config_cc_toolchains.
  • --incompatible_string_join_requires_strings is now enabled by default
  • Flag --incompatible_new_actions_api is enabled by dewfault (#5825)
  • New flag --incompatible_disallow_empty_glob. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8195
  • --incompatible_no_kwargs_in_build_files is enabled by default
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_require_ctx_in_configure_features has been flipped. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7793 for more information.
  • BAZEL_USE_XCODE_TOOLCHAIN=1 tells Bazel not to look for Xcode to decide whether to enable toolchains for Apple rules, but to assume Xcode is available. Can be also used when building on Darwin and no C++ or ObjC is being built, so there is no need to detect Xcode.
  • Android desugaring actions now use persistent workers by default. This has been measured to provide up to 20% reduction in build times. To disable it, use the --strategy=Desugar=sandboxed flag. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8342 and https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8427 for more details on local build speed optimization for Android apps.
  • Fixed an issue with Android builds where --fat_apk_cpu doesn't pack all selected shared libraries from aar_import targets into the APK. See #8283.
  • Turn on --experimental_starlark_config_transitions by default for starlark transitions (see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/config.html#user- defined-transitions for more info)
  • Turn on --experimental_build_setting_api by default for starlark build settings (see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/config.html#user- defined-build-settings for more info)
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_dont_enable_host_nonhost_crosstool_features has been flipped. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7407 for more information.
  • Added support for Android NDK 19 and 20.
  • Flip --incompatible_no_support_tools_in_action_inputs
  • --remote_executor, --remote_cache or --bes_backend=someurl.com would be treated as grpcs://someurl.com, if the --incompatible_tls_enabled_removed flag enabled. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/8061 for details.
  • Add new options --cs_fdo_absolute_path= to support the absolute path profile for LLVM's context-sensitive FDO.
  • When --incompatible_strict_action_env is enabled, the default PATH now includes /usr/local/bin.
  • Turn on --experimental_build_setting_api by default for starlark build settings (see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/config.html#user- defined-build-settings for more info)

Incompatible changes

Apple

  • The --ios_multi_cpus, --watchos_cpus, --macos_cpus and --tvos_cpus are now additive. This means that you can now split the --ios_multi_cpus=arm64,armv7 into --ios_multi_cpus=arm64 and --ios_multi_cpus=armv7.

  • Add --incompatible_objc_framework_cleanup to control whether to enable some objc framework cleanup that changes the API. Specifically, the cleanup changes the objc provider API pertaining to frameworks. This change is expected to be transparent to most users unless they write their own Starlark rules to handle frameworks. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7594 for details.

  • objc_library does not support resource attributes any more. Please read #7594 for more info.

Android

  • Android resource conflicts will no longer be reported between a strong attr resource and a weak attr resource, if the weak attr does not have format specified.

C++

Python

  • Fixed an issue where some py_runtimes were incompatible with using --build_python_zip (#5104).

Starlark

Windows

  • Windows, Python: the new --incompatible_windows_escape_python_args flag (false by default) builds py_binary and py_test targets with correct command line argument escaping. Similar to https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7486 but for py_* rules.

Other changes

  • cquery supports --output=build

  • Generated Go protobufs now depend on //net/proto2/go:proto_gendeps instead of //net/proto2/go:proto

  • Added --incompatible_remove_binary_profile to disable the old binary profiles. Instead use the JSON profile format: https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/performance.html#json-profile

  • Introducing --execution_log_binary_file and --execution_log_json_file that output a stable sorted execution log. They will offer a stable replacement to --experimental_execution_log_file.

  • New platform_mappings ability to allow gradual flag to platforms/toolchains migration. See also https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6426

  • Added support for compiling against fully qualified R classes from aar_import dependencies.

  • --tls_enabled flag is deprecated. Please provide grpcs as a scheme in the URLs if TLS should be used for a remote connection.

Incompatible changes:

  • (Starlark rules) The legacy “py” provider can no longer be passed to or produced by native Python rules; use [PyInfo](https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/lib/PyIn fo.html) instead. See #7298 for more information.
  • (Python rules) The default_python_version attribute of the py_binary and py_test rules has been renamed to python_version. Also, the --force_python flag has been renamed to --python_version. See #7308 for more information.
  • (Python rules) The python version now changes to whatever version is specified in a py_binary or py_test's python_version attribute, instead of being forced to the value set by a command line flag. You can temporarily revert this change with --incompatible_allow_python_version_transitions=false. See #7307 for more information.
  • --incompatible_disable_third_party_license_checking` is enabled by default
  • Introduced --incompatible_use_python_toolchains, which supersedes --python_top/--python_path. See #7899 and #7375 for more information.
  • Python 3 is now the default Python version (for py_binary and py_test targets that don't specify the python_version attribute). Targets that are built for Python 3 will no longer have their output put in a separate -py3 directory; instead there is now a separate -py2 directory for Python 2 targets. See #7359 and #7593 for more information.
  • objc_library resource attributes are now disabled by default. Please migrate them to data instead. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7594 for more info.
  • Flip --incompatible_windows_escape_jvm_flags to true. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7486

New features:

  • genrules now support a $(RULEDIR) variable that resolves to the directory where the outputs of the rule are put.
  • Added --incompatible_windows_native_test_wrapper flag: enables using the Bash-less test wrapper on Windows. (No-op on other platforms.)

Important changes:

  • incompatible_use_jdk11_as_host_javabase: makes JDK 11 the default --host_javabase for remote jdk (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7219)
  • Makes genquery somepath output deterministic.
  • Tristate attributes of native rules now reject True/False (use 1/0)
  • Rollback of “Tristate attributes of native rules now reject True/False (use 1/0)”
  • Tristate attributes of native rules now reject True/False (use 1/0)
  • Added -incompatible_do_not_split_linking_cmdline flag. See #7670
  • Tristate attributes of native rules now temporarily accept True/False again
  • --incompatible_disable_legacy_crosstool_fields has been flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6861) --incompatible_disable_expand_if_all_available_in_flag_set has been flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7008)
  • --incompatible_disable_legacy_crosstool_fields has been flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6861) `--incompatible_disable_expand_if_all_available_in_flag_set... RELNOTES: None.
  • --incompatible_no_transitive_loads is enabled by default.
  • Makes TreeArtifact deterministic.
  • --incompatible_no_transitive_loads is enabled by default.
  • Android NDK C++ toolchain is now configured in Starlark. This should be a backwards compatible change, but in case of bugs blame unknown commit.
  • --incompatible_disable_legacy_crosstool_fields has been flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6861) --incompatible_disable_expand_if_all_available_in_flag_set has been flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7008)
  • --incompatible_no_transitive_loads is enabled by default.
  • --incompatible_bzl_disallow_load_after_statement is enabled
  • Added --incompatible_require_ctx_in_configure_features, see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7793 for details.
  • Flag --incompatible_merge_genfiles_directory is flipped. This removes the directory bazel-genfiles in favor of bazel-bin.
  • previously deprecated flag --experimental_remote_spawn_cache was removed
  • --incompatible_disallow_load_labels_to_cross_package_boundaries is enabled by default
  • Fix an issue where the Android resource processor did not surface errors from aapt2 compile and link actions.
  • --incompatible_no_attr_license is enabled by default
  • --incompatible_disable_crosstool_file has been flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7320)
  • A new flag --incompatible_string_join_requires_strings is introduced. The sequence argument of string.join must contain only string elements.
  • --incompatible_symlinked_sandbox_expands_tree_artifacts_in_runfile s_tree has been flipped
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_disable_legacy_cc_provider has been flipped (see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7036 for details).
  • Don't drop the analysis cache when the same --define flag is set multiple times and the last value is the same (e.g. if the current invocation was run with “--define foo=bar” and the previous one was run with “--define foo=baz --define foo=bar”).
  • The --incompatible_disable_genrule_cc_toolchain_dependency flag has been flipped (see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6867 for details).
  • Incompatible change --incompatible_remove_cpu_and_compiler_attributes_from_cc_toolcha in has been flipped (see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7075 for details).
  • --noexperimental_java_coverage is a no-op flag.
  • --experimental_java_coverage/--incompatible_java_coverage flag was removed. See #7425.
  • incompatible_use_toolchain_providers_in_java_common: pass JavaToolchainInfo and JavaRuntimeInfo providers to java_common APIs instead of configured targets (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7186.)
  • --incompatible_remote_symlinks has been flipped. The remote caching and execution protocol will now represent symlinks in outputs as such. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7917 for more details.
  • Bazel is now ~20MiB smaller, from unbundling the Android rules' runtime dependencies.

Incompatible changes:

  • Added --incompatible_py3_is_default to test switching the default Python version to PY3 for py_binary/py_test targets that do not specify a version. See #7359.
  • //tools/cmd_line_differ has been renamed to //tools/aquery_differ & can now compare (in addition to command lines) inputs of actions given 2 aquery results.
  • java_(mutable_|)proto_library: removed strict_deps attribute.
  • The flag --incompatible_list_based_execution_strategy_selection was added and is used to ease the migration to the new style of specifying execution strategy selection and fallback behavior. The documentation for this flag is here: https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7480
  • Added --incompatible_py2_outputs_are_suffixed, for switching the bazel-bin symlink to point to Python 3 outputs instead of Python 2 outputs. See #7593.

New features:

  • Make actions.args() object chainable.
  • Added --incompatible_windows_style_arg_escaping flag: enables correct subprocess argument escaping on Windows. (No-op on other platforms.)
  • Added --incompatible_windows_escape_jvm_flags flag: enables correct java_binary.jvm_flags and java_test.jvm_flags tokenization and escaping on Windows. (No-op on other platforms.)

Important changes:

  • Allow running aquery against the current state of Skyframe
  • Added support for the “navigation” resource directory to Android resource processing in Bazel. This is used by the Navigation Architecture Component.
  • --incompatible_disable_runtimes_filegroups was flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6942)
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_linkopts_in_user_link_flags has been flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6826)
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_dont_emit_static_libgcc has been flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6825)
  • --incompatible_disallow_filetype is enabled by default.
  • Fixed issue where exceptions and stacktraces were silently swallowed in the Android resource processing pipeline.
  • --incompatible_disable_expand_if_all_available_in_flag_set has been flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7008)
  • --incompatible_disallow_dict_plus is enabled by default
  • Adds --incompatible_disable_objc_library_resources to disable resource attributes in objc_library. Please migrate these attributes to data instead.
  • --incompatible_disallow_old_style_args_add is enabled by default.
  • Using the native module in BUILD files is deprecated. It will be forbidden with --incompatible_disallow_native_in_build_file.
  • (Python rules) PyRuntimeInfo is exposed to Starlark, making it possible for Starlark rules to depend on or imitate py_runtime. The files attribute of py_runtime is no longer mandatory.
  • incompatible_use_toolchain_providers_in_java_common: pass JavaToolchainInfo and JavaRuntimeInfo providers to java_common APIs instead of configured targetshttps://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7186.
  • is_using_fission crosstool variable is now exposed in all compile actions when fission is active (it used to be exposed only for linking actions).
  • incompatible_use_toolchain_providers_in_java_common: pass JavaToolchainInfo and JavaRuntimeInfo providers to java_common APIs instead of configured targetshttps://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7186.
  • py_runtime gains a python_version attribute for specifying whether it represents a Python 2 or 3 interpreter.
  • --incompatible_java_coverage is enabled by default.
  • Starlark rules can safely declare attributes named “licenses”
  • When using --incompatible_list_based_execution_strategy_selection, Bazel will use remote execution by default (if you specify --remote_executor), otherwise persistent workers (if the action supports it), otherwise sandboxed local execution (if the action and platform supports it) and at last unsandboxed local execution. The flags --spawn_strategy and --strategy continue to work as before - this only sets new defaults for the case where you don't specify these flags.
  • Set default value of --incompatible_remap_main_repo to true.
  • Set default value of --incompatible_remap_main_repo to true.

Incompatible changes:

  • //src:bazel uses the minimal embedded JDK, if you want to avoid the extra steps of minimizing the JDK, use //src:bazel-dev instead.
  • //src:bazel uses the minimal embedded JDK, if you want to avoid the extra steps of building bazel with the minimized JDK, use //src:bazel-dev instead.
  • The default value of --host_platform and --platforms will be changed to not be dependent on the configuration. This means that setting --cpu or --host_cpu will not affect the target or host platform.
  • Toolchain resolution for cc rules is now enabled via an incompatible flag, --incompatible_enable_cc_toolchain_resolution. The previous flag, --enabled_toolchain_types, is deprecated and will be removed.
  • java_(mutable_|)proto_library: removed strict_deps attribute.
  • Python rules will soon reject the legacy “py” struct provider (preview by enabling --incompatible_disallow_legacy_py_provider). Upgrade rules to use PyInfo instead. See #7298.
  • java_(mutable_|)proto_library: removed strict_deps attribute.
  • Two changes to native Python rules: 1) default_python_version and --force_python are deprecated; use python_version and --python_version respectively instead. You can preview the removal of the deprecated names with --incompatible_remove_old_python_version_api. See #7308. 2) The version flag will no longer override the declared version of a py_binary or py_test target. You can preview this new behavior with --incompatible_allow_python_version_transitions. See #7307.

Important changes:

  • There is a new flag available --experimental_java_common_create_provider_enabled_packages that acts as a whitelist for usages of java_common.create_provider. The constructor will be deprecated in Bazel 0.23.
  • [#7024] Allow chaining of the same function type in aquery.
  • Introduces --local_{ram,cpu}_resources, which will take the place of --local_resources.
  • [#6930] Add documentation for the aquery command.
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_dont_emit_static_libgcc has been flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6825)
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_linkopts_in_user_link_flags has been flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6826)
  • Flag --incompatible_range_type is removed.
  • Flag --incompatible_disallow_slash_operator is removed.
  • Flag --incompatible_disallow_conflicting_providers is removed.
  • --incompatible_disallow_data_transition is now enabled by default
  • Allow inclusion of param files in aquery output
  • [#6985] Add test to verify aquery's behavior for Cpp action templates.
  • --incompatible_require_feature_configuration_for_pic was flipped (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7007).
  • Also ignore module-info.class in multi-version Jars
  • objc_framework has been deleted. Please refer to apple_dynamic_framework_import and apple_static_framework_import rules available in [rules_apple](https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_apple/blob/maste r/doc/rules-general.md)
  • --test_sharding_strategy=experimental_heuristic is no more
  • objc_bundle_library has been removed. Please migrate to rules_apple's [apple_resource_bundle](https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_apple/ blob/master/doc/rules-resources.md#apple_resource_bundle).
  • You can now use the attribute aapt_version or the flag --android_aapt to pick the aapt version for android_local_test tests
  • In --keep_going mode, Bazel now correctly returns a non-zero exit code when encountering a package loading error during target pattern parsing of patterns like “//foo:all” and “//foo/...”.
  • The default value for --incompatible_strict_action_env has been flipped to ‘false’ again, as we discovered breakages for local execution users. We'll need some more time to figure out the best way to make this work for local and remote execution. Follow https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7026 for more details.
  • Locally-executed spawns tagged “no-cache” no longer upload their outputs to the remote cache.
  • Introduces --host_compiler flag to allow setting a compiler for host compilation when --host_crosstool_top is specified.
  • --incompatible_expand_directories is enabled by default
  • [aquery] Handle the case of aspect-on-aspect.
  • Fixed a longstanding bug in the http remote cache where the value passed to --remote_timeout would be interpreted as milliseconds instead of seconds.
  • Enable --incompatible_use_jdk10_as_host_javabase by default, see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6661
  • Add --incompatible_use_jdk11_as_host_javabase: makes JDK 11 the default --host_javabase for remote jdk (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7219)
  • Highlight TreeArtifact in aquery text output.
  • Locally-executed spawns tagged “no-cache” no longer upload their outputs to the remote cache.
  • java_common APIs now accept JavaToolchainInfo and JavaRuntimeInfo instead of configured targets for java_toolchain and java_runtime
  • cc_common.create_cc_toolchain_config_info is stable and available for production use
  • incompatible_use_toolchain_providers_in_java_common: pass JavaToolchainInfo and JavaRuntimeInfo providers to java_common APIs instead of configured targets (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7186)
  • --incompatible_strict_argument_ordering is enabled by default.
  • Bazel now supports reading cache hits from a repository cache, even if it doesn't have write access to the cache.
  • Adding arm64e to OSX CROSSTOOL.
  • Ignore package-level licenses on config_setting.
  • Add an optional output_source_jar parameter to java_common.compile
  • --incompatible_disable_objc_provider_resources is now enabled by default. This disables ObjcProvider's fields related to resource processing.
  • Explicitly set https.protocols and exclude TLSv1.3.
  • Bazel now validates that JAVA_HOME points to a valid JDK and falls back to auto-detection by looking up the path of javac.
  • Upgrade the embedded JDK version to 11.0.2.
  • Added --incompatible_disable_crosstool_file (https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7320)
  • --incompatible_disable_objc_provider_resources is now enabled by default. This disables ObjcProvider's fields related to resource processing.
  • --incompatible_disable_tools_defaults_package has been flipped.
  • For tests that do not generate a test.xml, Bazel now uses a separate action to generate one; this results in minor differences in the generated test.xml, and makes the generation more reliable overall.
  • incompatible_generate_javacommon_source_jar: java_common.compile now always generates a source jar, see https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/5824.
  • New incompatible flag --incompatible_disallow_struct_provider_syntax removes the ability for rule implementation functions to return struct. Such functions should return a list of providers instead. Migration tracking: https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/7347

Breaking changes

Upcoming changes

This release is a migration window for the following changes.

General Changes

  • https://docs.bazel.build now supports versioned documentation. Use the selector at the top of the navigation bar to switch between documentation for different Bazel releases.

  • set projectId in all PublishBuildToolEventStreamRequest

Android

  • mobile-install now works with aapt2. Try it out with bazel mobile-install --android_aapt=aapt2 //my:target

  • Fixed issues with mobile-install v1 when deploying to Android 9 Pie devices. https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6814

  • Fixed issue where error messages from Android manifest merging actions were not fully propagated.

  • New incompatible change flag --incompatible_use_aapt2_by_default for defaulting to aapt2 in Android builds has been added. To build with aapt2 today, pass the flag --incompatible_use_aapt2_by_default=true or --android_aapt=aapt2, or set the aapt_version to aapt2 on your android_binary or android_local_test target.

  • Fixed mobile-install v1 error when installing an app with native libraries onto an Android 9 (Pie) device. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/examples/issues/77

  • Fixed a mobile-install bug where arm64-v8a libraries were not deployed correctly on arm64 devices. This was done by enabling incremental native lib deployment by default. A previously undocumented --android_incremental_native_libs flag is removed, and is now the regular behavior. See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/2239

Apple

  • The objc_bundle rule has been removed. Please migrate to rules_apple's [apple_bundle_import](https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_apple/bl ob/master/doc/rules-resources.md#apple_bundle_import).

  • The apple_stub_binary rule has been deleted.

  • The --xbinary_fdo option that passes xbinary profiles has been added.

C++

  • cc_toolchain.(static|dynamic)_runtime_libs attributes are now optional

Packaging

  • build_tar.py in tools/build_defs/pkg now supports a JSON manifest that can be used to add paths that have symbols that can't be specified via the command line

Query

  • Filtering of inputs, outputs, and mnemonic filtering have been added to aquery.

  • The aquery and cquery query2 tests have been open-sourced.

  • The Bazel query how-to recommends “:*” instead of “:all”, because “all” might be the name of a target.

Testing

  • The --runs_per_test has been placed in the TESTING documentation category.

  • A a clarifying message has been added to test case summary output when all test cases pass but the target fails.

Release 0.21.0 (2018-12-19)

Baseline: cb9b2afbba3f8d3a1db8bf68e65d06f1b36902f5

   + 12b96466ee0d6ab83f7d4cd24be110bb5021281d:
     Windows, test wrapper: rename the associated flag
   + 7fc967c4d6435de2bb4e34aac00ca2e499f55fca:

   + dbe05df23ccf4c919379e0294e0701fd3f66739c:
     Update the version of  skylib bundled in the distfile

Incompatible changes:

  • The --experimental_stl command line option is removed.
  • aquery defaults to human readable output format.

New features:

  • repository_ctx.download and repository_ctx.download_and_extract now return a struct.
  • Android Databinding v2 can be enabled with --experimental_android_databinding_v2.

Important changes:

  • The deprecated and unmaintained Docker rules in tools/build_defs/docker were removed. Please use https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_docker instead.
  • The new --upload_query_output_using_bep query/cquery/aquery flag causes query outputs to be uploaded via BEP.
  • New incompatible flag --incompatible_strict_argument_ordering
  • --strict_android_deps and --strict_java_deps were renamed to --experimental_strict_java_deps
  • config_settings that select on “compiler” value instead of values = {“compiler” : “x”} should use flag_values = {“@bazel_tools//tools/cpp:compiler”: “x”}.
  • The new --upload_query_output_using_bep query/cquery/aquery flag causes query outputs to be uploaded via BEP.
  • Turn on --incompatible_disable_sysroot_from_configuration
  • We revamped our Android with Bazel tutorial! Check it out [here](https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/tutorial/android-a pp.html).
  • --incompatible_disallow_slash_operator is now on by default
  • Enable --experimental_check_desugar_deps by default. This flag rules out several types of invalid Android builds at compile-time.
  • The --max_config_changes_to_show option lists the names of options which have changed and thus caused the analysis cache to be dropped.
  • The --experimental_strict_action_env option has been renamed to --incompatible_strict_action_env and is now on by default. This means Bazel will no longer use the client's PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH environmental variables in the default action environment. If the old behavior is desired, pass --action_env=PATH and --action_env=LD_LIBRARY_PATH. --noincompatible_strict_action_env will also temporarily restore the old behavior. However, as --action_env is a more general and explicit way to pass client environmental variables into actions, --noincompatible_strict_action_env will eventually be deprecated and removed. See #6648 for more details.
  • XCRUNWRAPPER_LABEL has been removed. If you used this value before, please use @bazel_tools//tools/objc:xcrunwrapper instead.
  • --incompatible_static_name_resolution is no unable by default
  • We will phase out --genrule_strategy in favor of --strategy=Genrule= (for genrules) or --spawn_strategy= (for all actions).
  • --incompatible_package_name_is_a_function is now enabled by default
  • Dynamic execution is now available with --experimental_spawn_strategy. Dynamic execution allows a build action to run locally and remotely simultaneously, and Bazel picks the fastest action. This provides the best of both worlds: faster clean builds than pure local builds, and faster incremental builds than pure remote builds.
  • --incompatible_package_name_is_a_function is now enabled by default
  • New incompatible flag --incompatible_merge_genfiles_directory
  • grpc log now logs updateActionResult
  • CppConfiguration doesn't do package loading anymore. That means:
    • it's no longer needed to have C++ toolchain available when building non-C++ projects
    • bazel will not analyze C++ toolchain when not needed -> speedup ~2s on bazel startup when C++ rules using hermetic toolchain are not loaded
  • --incompatible_package_name_is_a_fu...

Breaking changes in 0.20

0.20 is a migration window for the following changes

Breaking changes in the next release (0.21)

Incompatible changes:

  • the --experimental_no_dotd_scanning_with_modules command line argument is not supported anymore.
  • The --prune_cpp_modules command line option is not supported anymore.
  • the --experimental_prune_cpp_input_discovery command line option is not supported anymore.

New features:

  • Added support for Android NDK r18.

Important changes:

  • The ‘default’ parameter of attr.output and attr.output_list is removed. This is controlled by --incompatible_no_output_attr_default
  • A number of platform-related Starlark APIs which were previously marked “experimental” are now disabled by default, and may be enabled via --experimental_platforms_api
  • Make legacy-test-support (“legacy_test-”) from android_sdk_repository neverlink. The legacy test support libraries shouldn't be built into test binaries. To make them available at runtime, developers should declare them via uses-library: https://developer.android.com/training/testing/set-up-project#andr oid-test-base
  • query remote server Capabilities (per REAPI v2)
  • CppRules: All cc_toolchains depended on from cc_toolchain_suite.toolchains are now analyzed when not using platforms in order to select the right cc_toolchain.
  • removed obsolete --explicit_jre_deps flag.
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_disable_legacy_cpp_toolchain_skylark_api was flipped.
  • Improve error messaging when unsupport proguard options are specified at the library level.
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_disable_legacy_cpp_toolchain_skylark_api was flipped.
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_disable_legacy_cpp_toolchain_skylark_api was flipped.
  • The --incompatible_disable_late_bound_option_defaults flag has been flipped (#6384)
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_disable_legacy_flags_cc_toolchain_api was flipped (#6434)
  • Fixed issue where ctx.resolve_command created conflicting intermediate files when resolve_command was called multiple times within the same rule invocation with a long command attribute.
  • Incompatible flag --incompatible_disable_cc_configuration_make_variables was flipped (#6381)
  • If the --javabase flag is unset, it Bazel locates a JDK using the JAVA_HOME environment variable and searching the PATH. If no JDK is found --javabase will be empty, and builds targeting Java will not be supported. Previously Bazel would fall back to using the embedded JDK as a --javabase, but this is no longer default behaviour. A JDK should be explicitly installed instead to enable Java development
  • Bazel will now shut down when idle for 5 minutes and the system is low on RAM (linux only).
  • CROSSTOOL file is now read from the package of cc_toolchain, not from the package of cc_toolchain_suite. This is not expected to break anybody since cc_toolchain_suite and cc_toolchain are commonly in the same package.
  • All overrides of Starlark's ctx.new_file function are now deprecated. Try the --incompatible_new_actions_api flag to ensure your code is forward-compatible.
  • --incompatible_disable_cc_toolchain_label_from_crosstool_proto was flipped.
  • Introduce --(no)shutdown_on_low_sys_mem startup flag to toggle idle low-memory shutdown, disabled by default.
  • --incompatible_disable_cc_toolchain_label_from_crosstool_proto was flipped.
  • --incompatible_disable_cc_toolchain_label_from_crosstool_proto was flipped.
  • CppRules: All cc_toolchains depended on from cc_toolchain_suite.toolchains are now analyzed when not using platforms in order to select the right cc_toolchain.
  • The function attr.license is deprecated and will be removed. It can be disabled now with --incompatible_no_attr_license.
  • range() function now returns a lazy value (--incompatible_range_type is now set by default).
  • The code coverage report now includes the actual paths to header files instead of the ugly, Bazel generated, virtual includes path.
  • --incompatible_disallow_conflicting_providers has been switched to true
  • Add new flag --incompatible_disable_systool_from_configration to disable loading the systool from CppConfiguration.
  • Add new flag --incompatible_disable_sysroot_from_configuration to disable loading the systool from CppConfiguration.
  • Sorting remote Platform properties for remote execution. May affect cache keys!
  • Use different server log files per Bazel server process; java.log is now a symlink to the latest log.

The Bazel team is happy to announce a new version of Bazel, Bazel 0.19.

This document lists the major changes since Bazel 0.18.

General changes

  • The --incompatible_expand_directories flag will automatically expand directories in command lines. Design doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/11agWFiOUiz2htBLj6swPTob5z78TrCxm8DQE4uJLOwM

  • The --loading_phase_threads flag now defaults to auto (not 200, as was previously the case), which at the moment corresponds to the number of CPUs. This is appropriate for most users. However, if your sources reside on a network file system, increasing this value may yield better analysis-time performance when disk caches are cold.

Android

  • Fixed missing debug symbols when building native code with --compilation_mode=dbg that target Android ARM architectures by adding the -g flag.

C++

  • Added --incompatible_disable_legacy_flags_cc_toolchain_api to deprecate legacy cc_toolchain Starlark API for legacy CROSSTOOL fields. Tracking issue is #6434. Migration docs are on the bazel website.

  • Runfiles in cc_test: the C++ runfiles library (@bazel_tools//tools/cpp/runfiles) can now create Runfiles objects for tests. See //tools/cpp/runfiles/runfiles_src.h (in the Bazel source tree) for documentation.

  • :cc_binary link action no longer hardcodes -static-libgcc for toolchains that support embedded runtimes (guarded by --experimental_dont_emit_static_libgcc temporarily).

  • The flag --experimental_enable_cc_configuration_make_variables is removed, use --incompatible_disable_cc_configuration_make_variables instead.

Java

  • If the --javabase flag is unset, Bazel locates a JDK using the JAVA_HOME environment variable and searching the PATH. If no JDK is found --javabase will be empty, and builds targeting Java will not be supported. Previously Bazel would fall back to using the embedded JDK as a --javabase, but this is no longer default behaviour. A JDK should be explicitly installed instead to enable Java development.

Code Coverage

  • LcovMerger was renamed to CoverageOutputGenerator.

  • Faster coverage collection for gcc compiled C++ code can now be tested by enabling it with --experimental_cc_coverage.

Other Changes

  • Add --apple_compiler and --apple_grte_top options. These provide the equivalent of --compiler / --grte_top for the toolchain configured in --apple_crosstool_top.

  • There is now a same_pkg_direct_rdeps query function. See the query documentation for more details.

  • Propagating remote errors to the user even if --verbose_failures=false is set.

  • Add number of configured targets to analysis phase status output.

  • Bazel will now check stderr instead of stdout to decide if it is outputting to a terminal. --isatty is deprecated, use --is_stderr_atty instead.

Future Changes

General changes

  • New bazelrc file list. If you need to keep both the old and new lists of .rc files active concurrently to support multiple versions of Bazel, you can import the old file location into the new list using try-import. This imports a file if it exists and silently exits if it does not. You can use this method to account for a user file that may or may not exist

  • .bazelignore is now fully functional.

  • The startup flag --host_javabase has been renamed to --server_javabase to avoid confusion with the build flag --host_javabase.

Android

  • The Android resource processing pipeline now supports persistence via worker processes. Enable it with --persistent_android_resource_processor. We have observed a 50% increase in build speed for clean local builds and up to 150% increase in build speed for incremental local builds.

C++

  • In-memory package //tools/defaults has been removed (controlled by --incompatible_disable_tools_defaults_package flag). Please see migration instructions and migrate soon, the flag will be flipped in Bazel 0.19, and the legacy behavior will be removed in Bazel 0.20.

  • Late bound option defaults (typical example was the --compiler flag, when it was not specified, it’s value was computed using the CROSSTOOL) are removed (controlled by --incompatible_disable_late_bound_option_defaults flag). Please see migration instructions and migrate soon, the flag will be flipped in Bazel 0.19, and the legacy behavior will be removed in Bazel 0.20.

  • Depsets are no longer accepted in user_compile_flags and user_link_flags in the C++ toolchain API (controlled by --incompatible_disable_depset_in_cc_user_flags flag) affects C++ users. Please see migration instructions and migrate soon, the flag will be flipped in Bazel 0.19, and the legacy behavior will be removed in Bazel 0.20.

  • CROSSTOOL is no longer consulted when selecting C++ toolchain (controlled by --incompatible_disable_cc_toolchain_label_from_crosstool_proto flag). Please see migration instructions and migrate soon, the flag will be flipped in Bazel 0.19, and the legacy behavior will be removed in Bazel 0.20.

  • You can now use toolchain_identifier attribute on cc_toolchain to pair it with CROSSTOOL toolchain.

  • C++ specific Make variables are no longer passed from the CppConfiguration, but from the C++ toolchain (controlled by --incompatible_disable_cc_configuration_make_variables flag). Please see migration instructions and migrate soon, the flag will be flipped in Bazel 0.19, and the legacy behavior will be removed in Bazel 0.20.

  • Skylark api accessing C++ toolchain in ctx.fragments.cpp is removed (controlled by --incompatible_disable_legacy_cpp_toolchain_skylark_api flag). Please migrate soon, the flag will be flipped in Bazel 0.19, and the legacy behavior will be removed in Bazel 0.20.

  • cc_binary link action no longer hardcodes -static-libgcc for toolchains that support embedded runtimes (guarded by --experimental_dont_emit_static_libgcc temporarily). Proper deprecation using --incompatible flags will follow.

Java

  • Future versions of Bazel will require a locally installed JDK for Java development. Previously Bazel would fall back to using the embedded --server_javabase if no JDK as available. Pass --incompatible_never_use_embedded_jdk_for_javabase to disable the legacy behaviour.

  • --javacopt= no longer affects compilations of tools that are executed during the build; use --host_javacopt= to change javac flags in the host configuration.

Objective C

  • objc_library now supports the module_name attribute.

Skylark

Windows

  • --windows_exe_launcher is deprecated, this flag will be removed soon. Please make sure you are not using it.

  • Bazel now supports the symlink runfiles tree on Windows with --experimental_enable_runfiles flag. For more details, see this doc.

Other Changes

  • A new experimental option --experimental_ui_deduplicate has been added. It causes the UI to attempt to deduplicate messages from actions to keep the console output cleaner.

  • Add --modify_execution_info, a flag to customize action execution info.

  • Add ExecutionInfo to aquery output for ExecutionInfoSpecifier actions.

  • When computing --instrumentation_filter, end filter patterns with “[/:]” to match non-top-level packages exactly and treat top-level targets consistently.

  • Added the bazel info server_log command, which obtains the main Bazel server log file path. This can help debug Bazel issues.

  • aapt shrink resources now properly respect filter configurations.

Important changes:

  • In the future, Bazel will expand tree artifacts in runfiles, too, which causes the sandbox to link each file individually into the sandbox directory, instead of symlinking the entire directory. In this release, the behavior is not enabled by default yet. Please try it out via --incompatible_symlinked_sandbox_expands_tree_artifacts_in_runfile s_tree and let us know if it causes issues. If everything looks good, this behavior will become the default in a following release.

Incompatible changes:

  • Loading @bazel_tools//tools/build_defs/repo:git_repositories.bzl no longer works. Load @bazel_tools//tools/build_defs/repo:git.bzl instead.
  • If the same artifact is generated by two distinct but identical actions, and a downstream action has both those actions' outputs in its inputs, the artifact will now appear twice in the downstream action's inputs. If this causes problems in Skylark actions, you can use the uniquify=True argument in Args.add_args.

If this causes problems in Skylark actions, you can use the uniquify=True argument in Args.add_args.
  • Labels in C++ rules' linkopts attribute are not expanded anymore unless they are wrapped, e.g: $(location //foo:bar)
  • If the same artifact is generated by two distinct but identical actions, and a downstream action has both those actions' outputs in its inputs, the artifact will now appear twice in the downstream action's inputs. If this causes problems in Skylark actions, you can use the uniquify=True argument in Args.add_args.
  • New bazelrc file list.
  • Windows: when BAZEL_SH envvar is not defined and Bazel searches for a suitable bash.exe, Bazel will no longer look for Git Bash and no longer recommend installing it as a Bash implementation. See issue #5751.
  • New bazelrc file list.

New features:

  • The aquery command now supports --output=text.
  • Java, runfiles: the Java runfiles library is now in @bazel_tools//tools/java/runfiles. The old target (@bazel_tools//tools/runfiles:java-runfiles) is deprecated and will be removed in Bazel 0.18.0.
  • Java, runfiles: the Java runfiles library is now in @bazel_tools//tools/java/runfiles. The old target (@bazel_tools//tools/runfiles:java-runfiles) is deprecated and will be removed in Bazel 0.19.0 (not 0.18.0, as stated earlier).

Important changes:

  • Allow @ in package names.
  • Remove support for java_runtime_suite; use alias() together with select() instead.
  • Python wrapper scripts for MSVC are removed.
  • [JavaInfo] Outputs are merged in java_common.merge().
  • Faster analysis by improved parallelization.
  • --experimental_shortened_obj_file_path is removed.
  • Introduce the --remote_cache_proxy flag, which allows for remote http caching to connect via a unix domain socket.
  • No longer define G3_VERSION_INFO for c++ linkstamp compiles, as it was a duplicate of G3_TARGET_NAME.
  • Added support for Android NDK r17. The default STL is now libc++, and support for targeting mips, mips64 and ARMv5 (armeabi) has been removed.
  • Add aquery command to get analysis time information about the action graph.
  • Fixed compatibility with aar_import when using aapt2. AAPT2 is now supported for Android app builds without resource shrinking. To use it, pass the --android_aapt=aapt2 flag or define android_binary.aapt_version=aapt2.
  • Code coverage is collected for Java binaries invoked from sh_test.
  • java_common.compile creates the native headers jar accesible via JavaInfo.outputs.native_headers.
  • Deleting deprecated no-op flag --show_package_location
  • The JDK shipped with Bazel was updated to JDK10.
  • Rename the startup flag --host_javabase to --server_javabase to avoid confusion with the build flag --host_javabase
  • newly added options --experimental_repository_hash_file and --experimental_verify_repository_rules allow to verify for repositories the directory generated against pre-recorded hashes. See documentation for those options.
  • Removed the gen_jars output group
  • --subcommands can now take a “pretty_print” value (“--subcommands=pretty_print”) to print the arguments of subcommands as a list for easier reading.
  • follow-up to https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/commit/1ac359743176e659e9c7472 645e3142f3c44b9e8
  • A rule error is now thrown if a Skylark rule implementation function returns multiple providers of the same type.
  • When using Bazel's remote execution feature and Bazel has to fallback to local execution for an action, Bazel used non-sandboxed local execution until now. From this release on, you can use the new flag --remote_local_fallback_strategy= to tell Bazel which strategy to use in that case.
  • Execution Log Parser can now, when printing it out, filter the log by runner type
  • A rule error is now thrown if a Skylark rule implementation function returns multiple providers of the same type.
  • Removed the gen_jars output group
  • Removed the gen_jars output group
  • Set --defer_param_files to default to true.
  • Sort attribute lists in proto-form query output to fix non-deterministic genquery output.
  • Replace 0/1 with False/True for testonly attribute
  • bazel now supports a .bazelignore file specifying directories to be ignored; however, these directories still have to be well founded and, in particular, may not contain symlink cycles.
  • Add more detailed reporting of the differences between startup options.
  • update data binding to 3.2.0
  • For Android incremental dexing actions, Bazel now persists its DexBuilder process across individual actions. From our benchmarks, this results in a 1.2x speedup for clean local builds.
  • The standard xcode_VERSION feature now always uses exactly two components in the version, even if you specify --xcode_version with more or fewer than two.
  • A rule error will be thrown if a Skylark rule implementation function returns multiple providers of the same type. Try the --incompatible_disallow_conflicting_providers flag to ensure your code is forward-compatible.
  • Removed notion of FULLY_STATIC linking mode from C++ rules.
  • In documentation, we've renamed Skylark into Starlark.
  • Execution Log Parser can now, when printing it out, reorder the actions for easier text diffs
  • Linkstamps are no longer recompiled after server restart.
  • Use VanillaJavaBuilder and disable header compilation in toolchain_hostjdk8. The default toolchain will soon drop compatibility with JDK 8. Using a JDK 8 host_javabase will only be supported when using ‘VanillaJavaBuilder’ (which does not support Error Prone, Strict Java Deps, or reduced classpaths) and with header compilation disabled.
  • In the future, Bazel will expand tree artifacts in runfiles, too, which causes the sandbox to link each file individually into the sandbox directory, instead of symlinking the entire directory. In this release, the behavior is not enabled by default yet. Please try it out via --incompatible_symlinked_sandbox_expands_tree_artifacts_in_runfile s_tree and let us know if it causes issues. If everything looks good, this behavior will become the default in a following release.

This release is a patch release that contains fixes for several serious regressions that were found after the release of Bazel 0.16.0.

In particular this release resolves the following issues:

  • Bazel crashes with a StackOverflowError on Windows (See #5730)
  • Bazel requires a locally installed JDK and does not fall back to the embedded JDK (See #5744)
  • Bazel fails to build for Homebrew on macOS El Capitan (See #5777)
  • A regression in apple_static_library (See #5683)

Please watch our blog for a more detailed release announcement.

     jdk: use parallel old gc and disable compact strings

Incompatible changes:

  • The $(ANDROID_CPU) Make variable is not available anymore. Use $(TARGET_CPU) after an Android configuration transition instead.
  • The $(JAVA_TRANSLATIONS) Make variable is not supported anymore.
  • Skylark structs (using struct()) may no longer have to_json and to_proto overridden.
  • The mobile-install --skylark_incremental_res flag is no longer available, use the --skylark flag instead.

New features:

  • android_local_test now takes advantage of Robolectric's binary resource processing which allows for faster tests.
  • Allow @ in package names.

Important changes:

  • Option --glibc is removed, toolchain selection relies solely on --cpu and --compiler options.
  • Build support for enabling cross binary FDO optimization.
  • The --distdir option is no longer experimental. This option allows to specify additional directories to look for files before trying to fetch them from the network. Files from any of the distdirs are only used if a checksum for the file is specified and both, the filename and the checksum, match.
  • Java coverage works now with multiple jobs.
  • Flip default value of --experimental_shortened_obj_file_path to true, Bazel now generates short object file path by default.
  • New rules for importing Android dependencies: aar_import_external and aar_maven_import_external. aar_import_external enables specifying external AAR dependencies using a list of HTTP URLs for the artifact. aar_maven_import_external enables specifying external AAR dependencies using the artifact coordinate and a list of server URLs.
  • The BAZEL_JAVAC_OPTS environment variable allows arguments, e.g., “-J-Xmx2g”, may be passed to the javac compiler during bootstrap build. This is helpful if your system chooses too small of a max heap size for the Java compiler during the bootstrap build.
  • --noexpand_configs_in_place is deprecated.
  • A tool to parse the Bazel execution log.
  • Support for LIPO has been fully removed.
  • Remove support for --discard_actions_after_execution.
  • Add --materialize_param_files flag to write parameter files even when actions are executed remotely.
  • Windows default system bazelrc is read from the user's ProgramData if present.
  • --[no]allow_undefined_configs no longer exists, passing undefined configs is an error.
  • In remote caching we limit the number of open TCP connections to 100 by default. The number can be adjusted by specifying the --remote_max_connections flag.

Release 0.15.0 (2018-06-26)

Baseline: b93ae42e8e693ccbcc387841a17f58259966fa38

Cherry picks:
   + 4b80f2455e7e49a95f3a4c9102a67a57dad52207:
     Add option to enable Docker sandboxing.

     Allow disabling the simple blob caches via CLI flag overrides.
   + 4ec0a7524913ab2c4641368e3f8c09b347351a08:
     Use BUILD.bazel instead of BUILD for external projects

Incompatible changes:

  • Bazel now always runs binaries in with “bazel run” in interactive mode. The “--nodirect_run” command line option is now a no-op.
  • “bazel run --noas_test” is not supported anymore.
  • Indentation on the first line of a file was previously ignored. This is now fixed.

New features:

Important changes:

  • Bazel now allows almost all 7-bit ASCII characters in labels.
  • Remove vestigial java_plugin.data attribute
  • Bazel supports including select Java 8 APIs into Android apps targeting pre-Nougat Android devices with --experimental_desugar_java8_libs
  • Flag --incompatible_disable_glob_tracking is removed.
  • SkyQuery's rbuildfiles now returns targets corresponding to broken packages.
  • Introduce build support for providing cache prefetch hints.
  • Update the skylark DefaultInfo documentation to spell out runfiles, data_runfiles and default_runfiles
  • An internal action for symlinking runfiles will use Command instead of a Spawns. This should have no functional chages; the only user visible consequence should be that the internal action is no longer be included in statistics when calculating processes count.
  • --batch is deprecated
  • execution strategies line no longer handles differently the case where all processes have the same strategy.
  • The --experimental_remote_spawn_cache flag is now enabled by default, and remote caching no longer needs --*_strategy=remote flags (it will fail if they are specified).
  • android_binary.aapt_version=‘aapt2’ now supports en_XA and ar_XB
  • Added --apple_enable_auto_dsym_dbg flag.
  • non_propagated_deps has been removed from objc_library and apple_binary.
  • For Android projects, Bazel now supports building fonts as resources. See https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/look-and-feel/fonts-in-xml for more information on the feature.
  • With --incompatible_no_support_tools_in_action_inputs enabled, Skylark action inputs are no longer scanned for tools. Move any such inputs to the newly introduced ‘tools’ attribute.

Incompatible changes:

  • Add --incompatible_disallow_legacy_javainfo flag.
  • Added flag --incompatible_disallow_old_style_args_add to help migrate from args.add() to args.add_all() / args.add_joined() where appropriate.

New features:

  • Bash,runfiles: use the new platform-independent library in @bazel_tools//tools/bash/runfiles to access runfiles (data-dependencies). See https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/blob/master/tools/bash/runfile s/runfiles.bash for usage information.
  • TemplateVariableInfo can now be constructed from Skylark.
  • The java_host_runtime_alias rule is now implemented in Java.

Important changes:

  • Flip default value of --experimental_shortened_obj_file_path to true, Bazel now generates short object file path by default.
  • Introduce fdo_profile rule that allows architecture-sensitive specification of fdo profiles.
  • canonicalize-flags no longer reorders the flags
  • CppRules: optional_compiler_flag was removed from CROSSTOOL, use features instead.
  • Labels of the form ////foo are disallowed.
  • The / operator is deprecated in favor of // (floor integer division). Try the --incompatible_disallow_slash_operator flag to ensure your code is forward-compatible.
  • Flip default value of --experimental_shortened_obj_file_path to true, Bazel now generates short object file path by default.
  • Exposed “mnemonic” and “env” fields on skylark “Action” objects.
  • Removed flag --incompatible_disallow_toplevel_if_statement.
  • Remove vestigial ‘deps’ and ‘data’ attributes from proto_lang_toolchain
  • Args objects (ctx.actions.args()) have new methods add_all() and add_joined() for building command lines using depsets.
  • FileType is deprecated and will be removed soon. Try the --incompatible_disallow_filetype flag to ensure your code is forward-compatible.
  • Introduce absolute_path_profile attribute that allows fdo_profile to accept absolute paths.
  • Support two-arg overloads for ctx.actions.args (eg. args.add(“--foo”, val))
  • Introduce ‘tools’ attribute to ctx.actions.run.
  • Fixed error message for proguard_apply_dictionary.
  • “bazel run” now lets one run interactive binaries. The BUILD_WORKSPACE_DIRECTORY and BUILD_WORKING_DIRECTORY environment variables indicate the working directory and the workspace root of the Bazel invocation. Tests are provided with an approximation of the official test environment.
  • repository rules are no longer restricted to return None.
  • Add --high_priority_workers flag.
  • CppRules: Feature configuration can be created from Skylark
  • Adds new-style JavaInfo provider constructor.
  • Make java_common.compile now uses java_toolchain javacopts by default; explicitly retrieving them using java_common.default_javac_opts is unnecessary.
  • CppRules: C++ command lines and env variables for C++ actions can be retrieved from feature configuration.
  • Skylark rule definitions may advertise providers that targets of the rule must propagate.
  • Bazel now supports running actions inside Docker containers. To use this feature, run “bazel build --spawn_strategy=docker --experimental_docker_image=myimage:latest”.
  • Remote execution works for Windows binaries with launchers.
  • Fixing start/end lib expansion for linking. There were many cases where archive files were still being used with toolchains that support start/end lib. This change consolidates the places that make that decision so they can be more consistent.
  • Add support for reporting an error if android_test.binary_under_test contains incompatible versions of deps
  • We replaced the --experimental_local_disk_cache and --experimental_local_disk_cache_path flags into a single --disk_cache flag. Additionally, Bazel now tries to create the disk cache directory if it doesn't exist.
  • Save Blaze memory by not storing LinkerInput objects in LinkCommandLine
  • In the JavaInfo created by java_common.create_provider now includes both direct and transitive arguments in transitive_compile_time_jars and transitive_runtime_jars
  • Allow --worker_max_instances to take MnemonicName=value to specify max for each worker.
  • Allow java_toolchain.header_compiler to be an arbitrary executable

     test-setup: remove leading "./" from test name

Incompatible changes:

  • Remove //tools/defaults:android_jar. Use @bazel_tools//tools/android:android_jar instead.

  • The flag --incompatible_show_all_print_messages is removed. Messages generated by print statements from any package will be displayed as DEBUG messages.

  • The --incompatible_disallow_uncalled_set_constructor flag is no longer available, the set constructoris completely removed from Skylark. Usedepset` instead.

  • Variables PACKAGE_NAME and REPOSITORY_NAME are deprecated in favor of functions package_name() and repository_name().

    https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/lib/native.html#p ackage_name

  • BUILD_TIMESTAMP now contains seconds (and not milliseconds) since the epoch.

New features:

  • Strings have a new .elems() method, that provides an iterator on the characters of the string.
  • Now you can access three functions in windows_cc_configure.bzl by: load(“@bazel_tools/tools/cpp:windows_cc_configure.bzl”, “<function_name>”)

Important changes:

  • CppRules: Unified action_configs for static libraries

  • Remove support for blaze dump --vfs. It is no longer meaningful.

  • Enable dependency checking for aar_import targets.

  • internal_bootstrap_hack has been deprecated and removed.

  • Properly handle tree artifacts on the link command line coming from a cc_library dependency.

  • Allow C++ features to make proto_library emit smaller C++ code

  • The ‘j2objc’ configuration fragment is exposed to Skylark.

  • Remove the default content of the global bazelrc.

  • In int() function, do not auto-detect base if input starts with ‘0’.

  • Users can now pass --experimental_shortened_obj_file_path=true to have a shorter object file path, the object file paths (and all other related paths) will be constructed as following: If there's no two or more source files with the same base name:

    /<target_package_path>/_objs/<target_name>/<source_base _name>. otherwise:

    /<target_package_path>/_objs/<target_name>/N/<source_ba se_name>. N = the file?s order among the source files with the same basename, starts from 0.

  • Move (c/cxx)opts from legacy_compile_flags to user_compile_flags

  • CppRules: Remove optional_*_flag fields from CROSSTOOL, they are not used, and could be expressed using features.

  • Introduce --incompatible_disable_objc_provider_resources to turn off all resource-related fields of the Objc provider.

  • Removed the statement of “What does Bazel support?” as it's limiting/misleading. Added supported host OSes to “multi-platform” paragraph.

  • android_library AAR output now contains proguard.txt

  • Bazel now displays information about remote cache hits and execution strategies used in its UI after every build and test, and adds a corresponding line “process stats” to BuildToolLogs in BEP.

  • Print correct build result for builds with --aspects flag.

  • android_binary.manifest_merger is no longer supported.

Incompatible changes:

  • In order to access the template variables $(JAVA) and $(JAVABASE), @bazel_tools//tools/jdk:current_java_runtime needs to be added to the toolchains= attribute from now on.
  • The ctx.middle_man function is not supported anymore.
  • The flag --incompatible_list_plus_equals_inplace is removed, its default behavior is preserved. += on lists now always mutates the left hand side.
  • --android_sdk no longer supports filegroup targets.
  • android_* rules no longer support legacy_native_support attribute.

New features:

  • query: Add option --noproto:flatten_selects to turn off flattening of selector lists in proto output.
  • New android test rule, android_local_test.

Important changes:

  • The --remote_rest_cache flag now respects --remote_timeout.
  • --experimental_java_coverage is available for testing.
  • The deprecated builtin set is no longer allowed even from within unexecuted code in bzl files. It's temporarily possible to use --incompatible_disallow_uncalled_set_constructor=false if this change causes incompatibility issues.
  • Linkstamping is now a separate and full-blown CppCompileAction, it's no longer a part of linking command.
  • Using +, | or .union on depsets is now deprecated. Please use the new constructor instead (see https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/depsets.html).
  • config_feature_flag's default_value is optional. It is only an error to have a config_feature_flag with no default_value if that config_feature_flag has not been set in the configuration it is being evaluated in.
  • --[no]keep_incrementality_data is gone, replaced by the enum-valued --incremental_state_retention_strategy
  • Linkstamping is now a separate and full-blown CppCompileAction, it's no longer a part of linking command.
  • Added --checkHashMismatch flag to ZipFilterAction. Valid values are IGNORE, WARN and ERROR. --errorOnHashMismatch is deprecated, please use this flag instead.
  • Set build jobs equivalent to number of logical processors by default. Should improve build times significantly.
  • Added --(no)expand_test_suites flag.
  • Rename --keep_incrementality_data to --track_incremental_state
  • --remote_rest_cache was renamed to --remote_http_cache. Both options keep working in this release, but --remote_rest_cache will be removed in the next release.
  • Aspects-on-aspect see and propagate over aspect attributes.
  • --auth_* flags were renamed to --google_* flags. The old names will continue to work for this release but will be removed in the next release.
  • Remote Caching and Execution support output directories.
  • Remove defunct flags --experimental_incremental_dexing_for_lite_proto and --experimental_incremental_dexing_error_on_missed_jars that have long been enabled by default
  • New version of aapt2 and Resources.proto.
  • Make PIC and non PIC outputs for C++ compilation with Tree Artifacts
