I have been using libtool since the beginning, and every new libtool
release has essentially been a "bugfix" release.

Unlike Autoconf and Automake, it is impossible to bring Libtool to a
plateau of tranquil completeness since it is by definition highly OS
and tool dependent.  Libtool has always been behind the curve.

Libtool is a real rats-nest of a shell script which could only be
corrected by starting from scratch.  It is difficult to understand and

So, yes, the so-called new-feature release is the same work as a
bugfix release, because both of them are just bugfix releases.  One is
just more advanced in development than the other.
