Conan Package - MSYS2

MSYS2 is software distribution and a building platform for Windows. It provides a Unix-like environment, a command-line interface and a software repository making it easier to install, use, build and port software on Windows. Many C++ projects are setup to be built with MSYS2 when built on Windows, rather than MSBuild. It is primarily intended to be used as a build_requirement in Conan recipes for these projects. One project that requires MSYS2 to build from sources is Google’s build system Bazel.

Conan Package - Abseil

Bincrafters has now published a Conan package for Google’s open-source library “Abseil” to our public Conan repository on Bintray. Abseil was just announced by Titus Winters last week at CPPCon 2017, and provides a number of mature utililty types and functions. Abseil is a bit unique in that Google has chosen not to implement semantic versioning and promote the use of the library strictly by following the master branch of their GIT repository, a strategy described by Winters as “Live at Head.”

Conan Package - Bazel

Bincrafters has now published a Conan package for Google’s open-source build system “Bazel” to our public Conan repository on Bintray. Bazel is used as the build system in a number of Google’s popular C++ projects, including Abseil, Protobuf, Tensorflow, and others. It is primarily intended to be used as a build_requirement in Conan recipes for these projects.

Conan Package - Java 8 and 9 installers

Bincrafters has now published Conan packages for both the Java 8 and Java 9 installers to our public Conan repository on Bintray. Indeed it’s a bit surprising to have a need to package Java with Conan.io, but it turns out that there are C++ related tools which require Java. The tool that prompted this package was Google’s open-source build system Bazel, which uses Java to compile C++. Thus, it is primarily intended to be used as a build_requirement in a Conan recipe.
