bdBuild includes several novel features not found in other build/optimizer programs including CommonJS asynchronous module definition module bundling, Dojo pragma processing, has.js folding, generalized replacements, CSS compacting, and other important features.

This project is currently in alpha release. It is being used to build several backdraft and dojo demonstrations, but formal testing and documentation has not been completed. Expect this project to move to beta in February of 2011
