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.

New in 1.5.26: February 1 2008

* Improved support for Mac OS X Leopard.
* More robust parsing of mangled `.la' files inside libltdl, fixing a
  possible overrun and a crash due to memory exhaustion.
* Fix compile command line for gcj on MinGW.
* Some configure variables have been renamed to fix caching:
  lt_prog_compiler_pic_works to lt_cv_prog_compiler_pic_works
  lt_prog_compiler_static_works to lt_cv_prog_compiler_static_works.
* Support for AIX 6.1.
* Bug Fixes.

This release was bootstrapped with automake-1.10.1, autoconf-2.61 and
m4-1.4.10, but is useable with older versions 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 :pserver:address@hidden:/sources/libtool \
  co -r release-1-5-26 libtool

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

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>.
