    Important changes:

    • The query flag "--host_deps" (commonly used as "--nohost_deps")
      🚚 has been renamed to "--tool_deps", and now also removes

      passing the --experimental_cc_skylark_api_enabled_packages flag.

    • 👌 Improve runfiles documentation.
    • 👌 Improve documentation on rule outputs.
    • 🏗 BUILD/.bzl execution errors cause execution to stop, even at
