Yes, this simplification was introduced in reltool 0.5.4 (april 2010). In order
to include an application in the target system it does now suffice to
list it in a
release (rel-tuple). All dependent applications will also be included.
It is only
when you want to process an application differently than the others that you
need to explicitly add it as an application (app-tuple). Further you do not
need to bother about kernel and stdlib. They are automatically included in
all releases as they are mandatory.
