GNU libtool 2.2.6b released

Item posted by Peter O'Gorman <pogma> on Mon 16 Nov 2009 03:35:55 PM UTC.

We are pleased to announce the release of GNU Libtool 2.2.6b.

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 release is a bug fix release for version 2.2.6. The following
bugs are fixed:

- Fixed libltdl to no longer attempt to dlopen() the old_library
listed in the .la file. Now will use only the preopen loader to
attempt to load it. This may be a security issue, all users are
advised to upgrade.
- Similarly, don't open module.la from the current directory, this
changes the behavior of libltdl to match the documentation.

libtool-2.2.6b is available now from ftp.gnu.org, along with diffs
against libtool-2.2.6a. Please use a mirror to reduce stress on the
main gnu machine:
