Noteworthy changes in release 2009.12.16 [alpha]

Item posted by Peter Simons <simons> on Tue 26 Oct 2010 11:27:16 AM UTC.

All macros that used a prefix other than AX_ -- or no prefix at all -- have been renamed to use AX_ consistently. The new version forward old calls under their old names to the new ones via Autoconf's AU_ALIAS mechanism.

The HTML documentation is obsolete. Instead, the archive now ships its documentation in Texinfo format.

All macros distributed by the archive are now licensed under terms that do not limit the choice of license for the generated configure script. Previous releases didn't meet this requirement because they contained macros that were licensed under GPL or Lesser GPL without an Autoconf Exception.

Please refer to the ChangeLog file for a complete list of changes.
