The Libtool Team is pleased to announce the release of GNU Libtool

GNU Libtool hides the complexity of using shared libraries behind a
consistent, portable interface. GNU Libtool ships with GNU libltdl,
which hides the comlexity of loading dynamic runtime libraries
(modules) behind a consistent, portable interface.

This release fixes a few regressions in 1.5.20, plus a small list of
other bugs.

New in 1.5.20: 2005-08-31
* Fix long-standing Solaris CC limitation failing with -no-undefined.
* Fix yet another regression with ownership of libltdl data files.
* Work around breakage on Tru64 due to shell bugs.
* Fix regression with spurious object name conflicts against installed
  static libraries which were erronously treated as convenience libraries.
* Fix building of packages on cygwin managed mounts.

libtool-1.5.20 is available now from, along with diffs
and xdeltas against libtool-1.5.18 that are also available from  Please use a mirror to reduce stress on the main gnu

This release was bootstrapped with Autoconf 2.59 and Automake 1.9.6,
but is useable with Autoconf 2.50 & later and Automake 1.4 & later in
your own projects.

Alternatively, you can fetch the unbootstrapped sourcecode from
anonymous cvs by using the following commands (just hit return when
you are prompted for the password):

  $ export CVS_RSH=ssh
  $ cvs -z3 -d :ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/libtool \
        co -r release-1-5-20 libtool

You will then need to have the latest release versions of Automake
(1.9.6) and Autoconf (2.59) installed to bootstrap the checked out
sources yourself.

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>, along with the verbose
output of any failed test groups, and the output from `./libtool --help'.
