Bazel 1.1

We’ve just released Bazel 1.1! Bazel 1.1 is intended to be backward-compatible with Bazel 1.0.

Please report any update problems.


  • The query flag --host_deps (commonly used as --nohost_deps) has been renamed to --tool_deps, and now also removes dependencies in any execution configuration from being reported in the query output. The previous flag name is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.


  • Small adjustments in error reporting. Errors during code evaluation will cause the execution to stop (the following errors were often misleading). Multiple validation errors can now be reported.
