Noteworthy changes in release 2010.02.14 [beta]

Item posted by Peter Simons <simons> on Tue 26 Oct 2010 11:30:14 AM UTC.

All macros have been assigned a unique serial number that corresponds to the number of commits that have modified the macro in the Archive's Git repository. Refer to the Automake documentation on serial numbers for further details about why these numbers are useful.

The text of the all-permissive license has been augmented by an express warranty disclaimer as suggested by the Free Software Foundation.

AX_CXX_VERBOSE_TERMINATE_HANDLER has been generalized to support architectures other than GNU libstdc++.

AX_CHECK_ICU has been extended to support icu-specific CPPFLAGS.

AX_BOOST_BASE has been improved to work correctly in a cross-compilation environment and extended to support an ACTION-IF-FOUND/ACTION-IF-NOT-FOUND-style API.

AX_PTHREAD has been updated to succeed when compiling with -Wall and -Werror.

AX_C_IFDEF has been deprecated, because the standard Autoconf macro AC_CHECK_DECL provides the same functionality.

AX_C_PRINTF_THSEP has been deprecated because of technical flaws. See for further details.

AX_RESTORE_FLAGS and AX_SAVE_FLAGS have been added.

AX_SYS_LARGEFILE_SENSITIVE has improved support for x86_64 hosts.

AX_MPIP has been added.

In all macros, calls to the obsolete AC_HELP_STRING function have been replaced with the newer, recommended AS_HELP_STRING.
