Added:

  • Build environments for the virtual environment type are now cached for improved performance
  • Add build_environment_exists method to the environment interface for implementations that cache the build environment

Fixed:

  • Environments now respect dynamically defined project dependencies
  • The dep hash and all dep show commands now respect dynamically defined project dependencies
  • The env show, dep hash, and all dep show commands now honor context formatting
  • Fix matrix variable inclusion filtering of the run and env run commands when there are multiple possible variables
  • Build environment compatibility is now checked before use

  • Handle more edge cases in the setuptools migration script
  • Environments now respect user defined environment variables for context formatting
