idutils-4.5 released [stable]

Item posted by Jim Meyering <meyering> on Thu 17 Jun 2010 07:21:56 AM UTC.

This is to announce a stable release of idutils.
The idutils package contains tools to create and efficiently search
an index of "identifiers" from specified files:

Since 4.4 (beta) there have been build and portability improvements,
but little else.  It's been almost four years since the preceding stable
release, idutils-4.2.  Since *then* there have been interesting changes.
See the NEWS below for a summary.

Here are the compressed sources:   (1.5MB)   (868KB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

To reduce load on the main server, use a mirror listed at:

[*] You can use either of the above signature files 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 idutils-4.5.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 000BEEEE

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.65.88-7f65b
  Automake 1.11a
  Gnulib v0.0-4005-gb96ebff


* Noteworthy changes in release 4.5 (2010-06-17) [stable]

* Noteworthy changes in release 4.3.92 (2008-10-18) [beta]
