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 1.5.16: 2005-04-23

* Allow shell special characters like `$' in source file names, but
  not in object names, to enhance GCJ support.
* Detection of compiler wrappers like distcc/ccache and $host_alias
* More robust tests for PIC flag, `-c -o', in presence of warnings.
* Bug Fixes, among others for convenience archives regression on
  Solaris and timestamp-preserving `libtoolize --copy --ltdl'.

libtool-1.5.16 is available now from, along with diffs
and xdeltas against libtool-1.5.14 that are also available from  Please use a mirror to reduce stress on the main gnu

This release was bootstrapped with Autoconf 2.59 and Automake 1.9.5,
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-1-5-16 libtool

You will then need to have the latest release versions of Automake
(1.9.5) and Autoconf (2.59) installed to bootstrap the checked out
sources yourself.

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>, along with the verbose
output of any failed test groups, and the output from `./libtool --help.'
