See the "ChangeLog" file and Git commit history for complete lists of

This version enables and fixes the kbuild build system plugin, one of
the backends used by the oh-auto* build system frontend utilities.
These changes are necessary to build the recently updated busybox and
linux-libre packages.

There is now a post-installation unit testing framework with some
general and regression tests against oh-installfiles.  After installing
opkhelper, you can run `make test` to test your installation.


Building opkhelper from outside the source tree is unsupported with the
non-recursive build system introduced in version 3.0.0-beta2.  The
"INSTALL" file has been updated to reflect this [4].

Support for out-of-tree builds should be re-added before the final 3.0.0
