This is the announcement of a new release of GNU gettext.

GNU gettext allows programs to produce messages in the user's native
language. It consists of
  - runtime libraries for C, C++, Java, C#, Shell programs.
  - tools for programmers and translators.

Here are the compressed sources:   (20MB)   (6.3MB)   (6.9MB)

[*] 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 gettext-0.19.8.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 D7E69871

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.15
  Libtool 2.4.6
  Bison 3.0.4
  Gnulib v0.1-778-g6f9206d

Noteworthy changes in 0.19.8:

* Support for reproducible builds:
  - msgfmt now produces little-endian .mo files by default.

* Programming languages support:
  - XML:
    xgettext and msgfmt now look for .its files in directories
    supplied through the GETTEXTDATADIRS or XDG_DATA_DIRS environment
  - JavaScript:
    xgettext and msgfmt now recognize numbered arguments in format

* Portability:
  - Improve OS/2 kLIBC support.
  - Fix libintl compilation issue with pre-C99 compilers.  It was a
    regression since 0.19.5.
  - The AM_GNU_GETTEXT Autoconf macro can now detect musl-libc's
    gettext as a compatible implementation.
