Incompatible change.

If true, Bazel will no longer accept depsets in user_compile_flags for create_compile_variables, and in user_link_flags for create_link_variables. Use plain lists instead.

Migration docs.

The Bazel team is happy to announce a new version of Bazel, [Bazel 0.19](https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/releases/tag/0.19.0).

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
--------------

* None of the C++ related incompatible flags mentioned in the 0.18 release were flipped, they will be flipped in the next release (0.20). We have created tracking issues for all the relevant incompatible flags:
    * [`--incompatible_disable_late_bound_option_defaults`](https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/backward-compatibility.html#disable-late-bound-option-defaults): #6384
    * [`--incompatible_disable_depset_in_cc_user_flags`](https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/backward-compatibility.html#disable-depsets-in-c-toolchain-api-in-user-flags): #6383
    * [`--incompatible_disable_cc_toolchain_label_from_crosstool_proto`](https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/backward-compatibility.html#disallow-using-crosstool-to-select-the-cc_toolchain-label): #6382
    * [`--incompatible_disable_cc_configuration_make_variables`](#6381): #6381
    * [`--incompatible_disable_legacy_cpp_toolchain_skylark_api`](https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/backward-compatibility.html#disable-legacy-c-configuration-api): #6380
    * [`incompatible_disable_legacy_flags_cc_toolchain_api`](https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/backward-compatibility.html#disable-legacy-c-toolchain-api): #6434

* In the 0.20 release the flags [`--incompatible_remove_native_git_repository`](https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/backward-compatibility.html#remove-native-git-repository) and [`--incompatible_remove_native_http_archive`](https://docs.bazel.build/versions/master/skylark/backward-compatibility.html#remove-native-http-archive) will be turned on.

Thank you to our contributors!

Not yet, waiting for intellij plugin to migrate. Since this is not time critical and affects all plugin users I decided to wait a bit.

  - [--incompatible_static_name_resolution](#5637)

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-<api-level>") 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.

  - 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-<api-level>") 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 (bazelbuild#6384)
  - Incompatible flag
    --incompatible_disable_legacy_flags_cc_toolchain_api was flipped
    (bazelbuild#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 (bazelbuild#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.
