Highlights

Code Generation

While the new kdb gen was already included in the last release, it is now fully functional and ready for productive use. To get started take a look at the new man-page for kdb-gen(1).

If you specifically want to use it with the High-Level API take a look at this tutorial.

We also created a new CMake function that will be available, if you include Elektra via CMake's find_package. The function is called elektra_kdb_gen and can be used to tell CMake about files that are generated via kdb gen. (Klemens Böswirth)
