hello-2.10 released [stable]

Item posted by Sami Kerola <kerolasa> on Sun 16 Nov 2014 12:24:24 PM UTC.

I'm delighted to announce version 2.10 of GNU hello. See below for
changes in this version.

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify hello-2.10.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys A9553245FDE9B739

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.14.1
  Gnulib v0.1-263-g92b60e6


  • Noteworthy changes in release 2.10 (2014-11-16) [stable]

Most importantly this release include the 'Hello, World' message to be
part of translations.  The translation bug was introduced in release 2.9.

Other changes in this release include; Make use of none-recursive build.
Removal of user-defined new-style.  Include an example how to add a
section to a manual page, such as BUGS.  Rather than 'fprintf (stderr'
use libc 'error()' reporting facility.  Start using 'make
update-copyright' facility.  Generate ChangeLog from git commit logs.
Avoid manual page generation errors when cross-compiling.
