The Libtool Team would like to announce alpha release 1.5.23b of GNU

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

Here are the compressed sources:

Here are the xdeltas and diffs against libtool-1.5.22:

Here are the gpg detached signatures:

You should download the signature named after any tarball you download,
and then verify its integrity with, for example:

  gpg --verify libtool-1.5.23b.tar.gz.sig

Here are the MD5 and SHA1 checksums:

This prerelease should help shake out any remaining bugs for 1.5.24.
Ideally, the releases will be identical, so please test it on your
systems and with your software packages as much as you can.  This
release fixes a couple of regressions on BSD systems, improves multilib
support, and treats Cygwin more like MinGW; see the NEWS excerpt below.

We intend for 1.5.24 to be the last release of the 1.5.x series.

This release was bootstrapped with Autoconf 2.61 and Automake 1.10,
but is useable with Autoconf 2.50 & later and Automake 1.4 & later
in your own projects.

Alternatively, you can fetch the unbootstrapped source code from
anonymous cvs by using the following command:

  $ cvs -z3 -d :pserver:address@hidden:/sources/libtool \
    co -r release-1-5-23b libtool

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

New in 1.5.23b: 2007-02-17

* Initial support for RDOS.
* Fix regression on DragonFly that disabled library hardcoding.
* Fix regression on OpenBSD, NetBSD, DragonFly, and other systems
  with hardcode_direct=yes that wrongly removed paths to uninstalled
  libraries during link mode.
* Let libltdl know that FreeBSD and DragonFly dlopen causes dependent
  modules to be loaded.  This fixes excessive load times for modules
  with large library dependency graphs.
* Fix error with -version-info on systems with version_type=none, such
  as BeOS.
* Initial support for the Sun compiler suite on GNU/Linux.
* Improved support for GNU/kFreeBSD and GNU/NetBSD.
* Search paths with GCC on multilib systems like x86_64 have been fixed.
* The libtool --tag argument which has been supported since version 1.5
  is documented now.
* Fix regression in libltdl symbol exports on Cygwin. Side effect:
  LT_GLOBAL_DATA and LT_SCOPE are now explicitly defined as
  declspec(dllexport), bypassing auto-export logic on Cygwin.
  This tracks existing behavior on MinGW.
* Bug Fixes.

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>, along with the verbose
output of any failed test groups, and the output from `./libtool --config.'
The README file explains how to capture the verbose test output.
