Hi, I just wanted to let people know that I have released a new version 
of KJam, a build tool inspired by Jam.
It has some a long way since I first announced it here a few months 
back. As usual, I am interested in feedback
about it. Comments from our growing community of beta users drives most 
of our continuing development.

You can find out more about KJam here: http://www.oroboro.com/kjam

Kjam is designed to support large projects and has support for 
distributed builds on a network of build servers,
supports batched builds, and has a built-in shell.

I have also released some performance numbers comparing KJam, Jam and 
Gnu Make and MSBuild. Performance
for KJam and Jam is similar - though for large projects KJam is 
significantly faster. Both Jam and KJam are
much faster than MSBuild or Gnu Make - sometimes by as much as 20x.

The performance numbers are available here:
