There is a third, and hopefully last, beta version for DUB 0.9.21. It contains four major new features:
New per-package build system (builds individual packages as static libraries), use
--combined to build everything at once (almost) like before
New "dub test" command to run the (unit) tests of a project
Supports (and recommends) public sub packages in sub folders. For example, the following entry in vibe.d's package description file would make the http server example available as a dependency
The preferred package description file name is now "dub.json" instead of "package.json" (the old name will continue to be supported).
Everything basically works, but a lot of testing is still needed to get a solid release. Please download from http://code.dlang.org/download (or GIT clone from https://github.com/rejectedsoftware/dub.git) and test with your projects, so that any regressions can be worked out early.
Not sure if this is a bug or a problem with a non-properly configured package.json, but the gfm package from code.dlang.org fails to compile: if you create a simple test project:
"description": "A minimal D application.",
"gfm" : "~master"
This fails to compile: after building the single subpackages, it appears that a non-valid dmd command is issued:
dub build --verbose
Building gfm configuration "library", build type debug.
Ignoring all import libraries for static library build.
Trying to use pkg-config to resolve library flags for .
pkg-config failed: pkg-config exited with error code 1
Falling back to direct -lxyz flags.

Again, my guess it's a package.json problem, but I couldn't find what's wrong, so I'm submitting this. Check it out if you have any spare time!
