The Libtool Team is pleased to announce the release of GNU Libtool

GNU Libtool hides the complexity of using shared libraries behind a
consistent, portable interface. GNU Libtool ships with GNU libltdl,
which hides the comlexity of loading dynamic runtime libraries
(modules) behind a consistent, portable interface.

This release has a number of improvements and bug fixes.

New in 1.5.8: Saturday, August 7th 2004

* Support for Intel C++ version 8.0.
* Improved support for OpenBSD.
* Support for xlc on Mac OS X.
* Better support for zsh as /bin/sh.
* Much faster check for command line length on all BSD systems.
* Better Mac OS X/darwin support.
* Bug Fixes.

This release was bootstrapped with Automake 1.8.5 and Autoconf 2.59
but is useable with Autoconf 2.50 & later and Automake 1.4 & later
in your own projects.

Alternatively, you can fetch the unbootstrapped sourcecode from
anonymous cvs by using the following commands (just hit return when
you are prompted for the password):

  $ export CVS_RSH=ssh
  $ cvs -z3 -d :ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/libtool \
  co -r release-1-5-8 libtool

You will then need to have recent versions of Automake
(Automake 1.8 & later) and Autoconf (Autoconf 2.59) installed to
bootstrap the checked out sources yourself.

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>.
