Status update: I plan to put out a second beta release as soon as I can get the core testsuite to a point where I'm happy with it on Solaris and NetBSD, and also do something about #110286 and #110294.  This should hopefully happen early next week.

It's been 6 years and 195 commits sonce the last Autoconf release. Autoconf is still a major part of the GNU build system, and could really use an update.

Your fans are eagerly waiting!
