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 fixes bugs and annoyances present in the 1.5 release.

New in 1.5.2: 2004-01-25

* lt_dlrealloc is an official part of the libltdl API.
* --tag, --silent and --debug options are preserved and reused when
  libtool calls itself for relinking etc.
* `-pthread' and similar options are honoured when linking shared
* -no-suppress in compile mode shows compiler output for both PIC and
  non-PIC object compilation.
* New link mode option `-precious-files-regex' to prevent accidental
  removal of files you want to keep, such as test coverage data, from
  the temporary output directory.
* Directories specified in /etc/ are no longer hardcoded on
* Recognises the 'R' symbol type on Solaris so read-only symbols can be
* Bug fixes.

This release was bootstrapped with Autoconf 2.59 and Automake 1.8.2, 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):

$ cvs -z3 -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/libtool login
  $ cvs -z3 -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/libtool \
  co -r release-1-5-2 libtool

You will then need to have the latest release versions of Automake and
Autoconf installed to bootstrap the checked out sources yourself.

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>.

Hi all,

For the OS QNX Neutrino the "host-os" name have to be tested, in the macro file acinclude.m4, not as "nto-qnx" but as "nto-qnx*". The "host-os" name in the OS QNX NTO depends on the version of the OS. In the OS QNX NTO v. 6.2.0, the "host-os" name is "nto-qnx6.2.0" and in v. 6.2.1, the "host-os" name is "nto-qnx6.2.1". Without this change, libtool will not be generate shared libraries under the OS QNX Neutrino. In previous versions the "host-os" name is "nto-qnx". This problem is more complicated, because the "host-os" name depends on under how OS configure script was builded. I do not why. If I build the configure script under OS QNX NTO and run it, the "host-os" name have to be tested as "nto-qnx*". If I port a project from the OS Linux to the OS QNX NTO, sometimes the "host-os" name is "nto-qnx" only.
