Release 0.15.0 (2018-06-26)

Baseline: b93ae42

Cherry picks:

  • 4b80f24:
    Add option to enable Docker sandboxing.
  • 6b16352:
    Allow disabling the simple blob caches via CLI flag overrides.
  • 4ec0a75:
    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.

  • Update the skylark DefaultInfo documentation to spell out
    runfiles, data_runfiles and default_runfiles
  • An internal action for symlinking runfiles will use Command

    only user visible consequence should be that the internal action
    is no longer be included in statistics when calculating processes
  • --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
  • For Android projects, Bazel now supports building fonts as
    resources. See
    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.
