I am pleased to announce the release of GNU M4 1.4.3, the GNU macro processor.

This release fixes two more long-standing bugs and, importantly, brings the
behaviour of m4 in the presence of missing files in line with the future 2.0

New in 1.4.4: 20 October 2005

* ./configure --infodir=/usr/share/info now works correctly.
* When any file named on the command line is missing exit with status 1.

m4-1.4.4 is available now from, along with diffs and xdeltas
against m4-1.4.3.  Please use a mirror to reduce stress on the main gnu machine:

Here are the compressed sources:

Here are the xdeltas and diffs against m4-1.4.3:

Here are the gpg detached signatures:

You should download the signature named after any tarball or diff you download
and then verify its integrity with, for example:

  gpg --verify m4-1.4.4.tar.gz.sig

The fingerprint of the signature used to sign the files is:

  CFE2 BE70 7B53 8E8B 2675  7D84 1513 0809 2983 D606

previous versions of autoconf for your own projects.

Alternatively you can fetch the sources form anonymous cvs by using the
following commands (just hit return when you are prompted for the password):
