GNU Libtool 2.4.2 released [stable]

Item posted by Gary V. Vaughan <gary> on Tue 18 Oct 2011 09:59:19 AM UTC.

Libtoolers!

The Libtool Team is pleased to announce the release of GNU Libtool 2.4.2.

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 contains bugfixes accumulated over the last 13 months since
the release of 2.4 in September 2010.

New in 2.4.2 2011-10-17:

  • New features:

- The --with-pic configure option now supports a list of comma-separated
package names. This can be used to build some static libraries with PIC
objects while building others with non-PIC objects.

- Initial support for Go, using the gccgo compiler.

- On Mac OS X .dylib is now tried as well as .so with
lt_dlopenext().

  • Bug fixes:

- The generic approximation of the command line length limit (when getconf is
not available) works again. Regression introduced in v2.2.6-39-g9c3d4d8.
- The bug that leaked developer tool paths into the release tarballs
from ./bootstrap is fixed.
- Improved support for the Cuda Compiler Driver (nvcc) on Darwin.
- For GCC LTO support, the -fuse-linker-plugin switch is now also removed
when computing compiler postdeps.

  • Important incompatible changes:

- The undocumented hardcode_libdir_flag_spec_ld tag variable has been
removed in favor of using hardcode_libdir_flag_spec with $wl set to empty.

  • Changes in supported systems or compilers:

- Fixes for gfortran on Darwin, XL Fortran on GNU/Linux.
- Support for FreeBSD 1.x (outdated since 1994) has been removed.

libtool-2.4.2 is available now from ftp.gnu.org, along with compressed diffs
against libtool-2.4. Please use a mirror to reduce stress on the main gnu
machine:

Here are the gpg detached signatures:

ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libtool/libtool-2.4-2.4.2.diff.gz.sig (4.0KiB)

You should download the signature named after any tarball you download, and
then verify its integrity with, for example:

gpg --verify libtool-2.4.2.tar.gz.sig

This release was bootstrapped with autoconf-2.68 and automake-1.11.1, but is
useable with autoconf-2.62 and automake-1.9.6 in your own projects.

Alternatively, you can fetch the unbootstrapped source code with git by
using the following command:

$ git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/libtool.git
$ cd libtool
$ git checkout v2.4.2

You will then need to have the latest release versions of Automake
(automake-1.11.1) and Autoconf (autoconf-2.68) installed to
bootstrap the checked out sources yourself.

Please report bugs to <bug-libtool@gnu.org>, along with the verbose output of
any failed test groups, and the output from `./libtool --config.' The README
file explains how to capture the verbose test output.

Enjoy!
