New well tested makepp snapshot released

Makepp is a drop-in replacement for GNU make which has a number of
features that allow for reliable builds and simpler build files. It
supports almost all of the syntax that GNU make supports, and can be
used with makefiles produced by utilities such as automake. It is called
makepp (or make++) because originally it was designed for building C++
programs. Also its relationship to make is analogous to C++'s
relationship to C: it is almost 100% backward compatible but adds a
number of new features. But there are much better ways to write makefiles.

Here's again a new well tested beta snapshot. The highlight is being
good citizens: our classes no longer clutter many top level namespaces
and have instead moved to package Mpp (which is the shortcut prefix of
the makepp family of commands, e.g. mppc is an alias to makeppclean.)
Besides there are some bug fixes, most notably symlinks (which are
problematic dependencies, because they stand for two different files)
are finally handled consistently.

Perhaps people would be more likely to take the trouble to download any
try out your program if you spelt out in the announcement what one or
two of these new features are? Just a suggestion.
