GNU libtool-2.4.6 released [stable]

Item posted by Gary V. Vaughan <gary> on Sun Feb 15 20:59:52 2015.

Libtoolers!

The Libtool Team is pleased to announce the release of libtool 2.4.6.

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.

This is a bugfix release, and a recommended upgrade for all users. Most
importantly, it regains most of the speed of 2.4.2 by correcting one of
two known regressions that were causing noticable slow-down when building
projects with many source files.

Here are the compressed sources:
http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libtool/libtool-2.4.6.tar.gz (1.7MB)
http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libtool/libtool-2.4.6.tar.xz (952KB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:
http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libtool/libtool-2.4.6.tar.gz.sig
http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/libtool/libtool-2.4.6.tar.xz.sig

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:
http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html

[*] 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 libtool-2.4.6.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 keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 151308092983D606

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
Autoconf 2.69
Automake 1.15
Gnulib v0.1-336-g342d9f0

  • Noteworthy changes in release 2.4.6 (2015-02-15) [stable]

- LT_SYS_LIBRARY_PATH can be set in config.site, or at configure time
and persists correctly in the generated libtool script.

- Fix a race condition in ltdl dryrun test that would cause spurious
random failures of that test.

- LT_SYS_DLSEARCH_PATH is munged correctly.

Enjoy!
