The GNUstep Makefile Package version 1.6.0 is now available.

What is the GNUstep makefile package?
=====================================

   The makefile package is a simple, powerful and extensible way to
write makefiles for a GNUstep-based project.  It allows the user to
write a project without having to deal with the complex issues
associated with configuration, building, installation, and packaging.
It also allows the user to easily create cross-compiled binaries.

   Note that versions that have a odd minor release number (the second
number, y, in x.y.z) are unstable releases (like 1.5.2), which even
minor release numbers (1.4.1) are stable releases.

Changes in version `1.6.0'
==========================

   Make now configures by default for only one system. To compile and
run GNUstep for multiple platforms from the same directory, use the
configure argument -enable-multi-platform.

   * Auto-build def file for DLLs

   * Work natively on MacOSX systems. Now use apple-apple-apple instead
     of nx-nx-nx on OSX systems.

   * More efficient checks for re-making a project.

Obtaining gnustep-make
======================

   You can get the gstep-make-1.6.0.tar.gz distribution file at
<ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/core>

   Please log bug reports on the GNUstep project page
<http://savannah.gnu.org/support/?group=gnustep> or send bug reports to
<address@hidden>.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The GNUstep Base Library, version 1.6.0, is now available.

What is the GNUstep Base Library?
=================================

   The GNUstep Base Library is a library of general-purpose,
non-graphical Objective C objects.  For example, it includes classes
for strings, object collections, byte streams, typed coders,
invocations, notifications, notification dispatchers, moments in time,
network ports, remote object messaging support (distributed objects),
and event loops.

   It provides functionality that aims to implement the non-graphical
portion of the OpenStep standard (the Foundation library).

   There is more information available at the GNUstep homepage at
`http://www.gnustep.org'.

   Note that versions that have a odd minor release number (the second
number, y, in x.y.z) are unstable releases (like 1.5.2), which even
minor release numbers (1.4.1) are stable releases.

Noteworthy changes in version `1.6.0'
=====================================

   * More MinGW support

   * New MacOSX compatible methods.

   * The Base Additions library compiles on native OSX.

   * autogsdoc produces better, cleaner docs.

   * Built-in garbage collecting classes.

   * Any many many bug fixes and minor improvements.

Where can you get it?  How can you compile it?
==============================================

   The gnustep-base-1.6.0.tar.gz distribution file has been placed on
`ftp.gnustep.org' in `pub/gnustep/core'.
