Bazel 7.0 has been released!
Last month, we hosted BazelCon 2023 in Munich, Germany, marking the first-ever BazelCon in Europe.
Many rules in the Bazel ecosystem have migrated to using the platforms and toolchains systems. We're excited to announce that, as of Bazel 7.0, the built-in Android rules are joining this group.
After the many improvements made over past years, we have recently turned on Build without the Bytes by default - the first release to include this change will be the upcoming Bazel 7 LTS.
Since the official launch of Bzlmod in Bazel 6.0 in December 2022, the team has been hard at work improving Bzlmod in time for enabling it by default in 7.0, slated to be launched by the end of this year. This blog post will give you an idea of what we've done so far, and what changes you can expect in the future.
New Bazel Product Partner Program is now live!
