Meson is a research experiment to determine optimal syntax and structure for a next-generation build system.
Release Notes: This release adds support for cross compilation. In most cases the build definition file does not need to be changed at all to support cross compilation. You only need a platform description file, which can be as small as five lines of text. Meson also supports building some targets (such as source code generators) natively during a cross build.
