idutils-4.6 released [stable]

Item posted by Jim Meyering <meyering> on Fri 03 Feb 2012 01:06:03 PM 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 4.5 there have been two bug fixes and some build and portability
improvements inherited via gnulib.  See the NEWS below for a summary.

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] 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 idutils-4.6.tar.xz.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 7FD9FCCB000BEEEE

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.68.136-a1a00
  Automake 1.11a
  Gnulib v0.0-6862-g0eab6e2


* Noteworthy changes in release 4.6 (2012-02-03) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  lid -L no longer mishandles open-ended ranges like "..2" and "2.."

  lid's -d, -o and -x options now work properly
