I'm pleased to announce the release of Automake 1.10.1.

Automake is a tool for automatically generating `'s
suitable for use with Autoconf, compliant with the GNU Makefile
standards, and portable to various make implementations.

This is primarily a bug-fix release, it contains a couple of
improvements.  The NEWS entry is appended.  Thanks to all people who
have been testing, reporting bugs, contributing code, suggesting
enhancements, and answering user questions on the mailing lists.

You can find the new release here:

Soon it will also appear on the sources and GNU mirrors which
are listed here:

Finally, here are the MD5 checksums:

    4510391e6b3edaa4cffb3ced87c9560c  automake-1.10.1.tar.bz2
    a0acfd1b167ba55a256f0c1af2983975  automake-1.10.1.tar.gz

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>.

New in 1.10.1:

  - Automake development is done in a git repository on Savannah now, see

    A read-only CVS mirror is provided at

      cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/automake.git \
          checkout -d automake HEAD

  - "make dist" can now create lzma-compressed tarballs.

  - `automake --add-missing' will by default install the GPLv3 file as
    COPYING if it is missing.  Note that Automake will never overwrite
    an existing COPYING file, even when the `--force-missing' option is
    used.  Further note that Automake 1.10.1 is still licensed under GPLv2+.

  - Libtool generic flags are now passed to the install and uninstall
    modes as well.

  - Files with extension .sx are also treated as preprocessed assembler.

  - install-sh now has an BSD-like option `-C' to preserve modification
    times of unchanged files upon installation.

Bugs fixed in 1.10.1:

* Long standing bugs:

  - Fix aix dependency tracking for libtool objects.

  - The signal handling of aclocal has been improved.

  - Targets beginning with a digit are now recognized correctly.

  - All directories `.libs'/`_libs' used by libtool are cleaned now,
    not only those in which libraries are built.

* Bugs introduced by 1.10:

  - Fix output of dummy dependency files in presence of post-processed's again, but also cope with long lines.

  - $(EXEEXT) is automatically appended to filenames of XFAIL_TESTS
    that have been declared as programs in the same Makefile.
    This is for consistency with the analogous change to TESTS in 1.10.

  - The autoconf version check implemented by aclocal in aclocal.m4
    (and new in Automake 1.10) is degraded to a warning.  This helps
    in the common case where the Autoconf versions used are compatible.

  - Fix order of standard includes to again be `-I. -I$(srcdir)',
    followed by directories containing config headers.
