This is the first publicly available alpha release tarball after the
move to Savannah. There are still a number of known issues that need to
be resolved, but most of these things are cosmetic in nature, i.e. they
concern the new Texinfo documentation or the project web site. The basic
installation procedure (and, of course, the actual macro content) is

Here are the compressed sources:

Here are the GPG detached signatures:

You can use either of the above signature files to verify that the
corresponding file (without the .sig suffix) is intact. First, be sure
to download both the .sig file and the corresponding tarball. Then, run
a command like this:

  gpg --verify autoconf-archive-2009.12.16.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 99089D72

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.65
  Automake 1.11.1
  Gnulib v0.0-3028-g4215bcc


* Noteworthy changes in release 2009.12.16 (2009-12-16) [alpha]

  All macros that used a prefix other than AX_ -- or no prefix at all -- have
  been renamed to use AX_ consistently. The new version forward old calls under
  their old names to the new ones via Autoconf's AU_ALIAS mechanism.

  The HTML documentation is obsolete. Instead, the archive now ships its
  documentation in Texinfo format.

  All macros distributed by the archive are now licensed under terms that do
  *not* limit the choice of license for the generated configure script.
  Previous releases didn't meet this requirement because they contained macros
  that were licensed under GPL or Lesser GPL without an Autoconf Exception.

  The archive has moved to Savannah:
  Version 2009-04-26 was the last to be released at

  The version identifier has been changed to a "" spelling,
  rather than the ISO format, because the dot-separated spelling works better
  for most distributions and for the gnulib infrastructure.
