Google launches Bazel, a tool for software builds and testing Google has announced the beta release of Bazel, an open source system for developers to create and test software builds on a variety of platforms. The company says it uses Bazel to build most of its software, and that it’s suitable for projects that involve large shared code repositories and extensive automated testing and release processes. Bazel promises potentially faster build times, as it can recompile select files instead of entire projects and can avoid re-running tests of code that it knows hasn’t changed. However, the company acknowledges that it may not be useful if you’re running build operations whose outputs should not be cached, or if you’re using interpreted languages directly. Bazel is available for Linux and OS X and can be used to build and test projects in C++, Java, Python and more.

It’s a relatively simple feature, but once you start using it, you’ll wonder how you lived without it. Docking is particularly useful when you’re taking notes from another window and you find yourself constantly switching from that window to OneNote to jot down your notes. Examples include online videos, PDF lecture notes, PowerPoint presentations, etc. In order to enter Docked mode, all you have to do is go to the View menu and select Dock to Desktop.
