|Subject:||bug#19893: GNU libtool-2.4.6 released [stable]|
|Date:||Wed, 18 Feb 2015 09:18:51 +0100|
The Libtool Team is pleased to announce the release of libtool 2.4.6.
GNU Libtool hides the complexity of using shared libraries behind a
consistent, portable interface. GNU Libtool ships with GNU libltdl, which
hides the complexity of loading dynamic runtime libraries (modules)
behind a consistent, portable interface.
This is a bugfix release, and a recommended upgrade for all users. Most
importantly, it regains most of the speed of 2.4.2 by correcting one of
two known regressions that were causing noticable slow-down when building
projects with many source files.
Here are the compressed sources:
Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:
Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:
[*] Use a .sig file 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 libtool-2.4.6.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 keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 151308092983D606
and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.
This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
* Noteworthy changes in release 2.4.6 (2015-02-15) [stable]
** New features:
- LT_SYS_LIBRARY_PATH can be set in config.site, or at configure time
and persists correctly in the generated libtool script.
** Bug fixes:
- Fix a race condition in ltdl dryrun test that would cause spurious
random failures of that test.
- LT_SYS_DLSEARCH_PATH is munged correctly.
If you have a working or partly working program that you'd like
to offer to the GNU project as a GNU package, see https://www.gnu.org/help/evaluation.html.
