First introduced in EasyBuild v2.1.0 (see EasyBuild v2.1.0 Release Notes),
experimental features can only be used by enabling the
--experimental configuration option.
An experimental feature indicates to users that these features may change significantly in a future release and should be used only for testing, not (yet) for production usage.
Currently enabled experimental features include:
- support for easyconfig files in YAML syntax (see Writing easyconfig files in YAML syntax (.yeb format) [IN DEVELOPMENT])
- support for RPATH linking (see Support for RPATH)
