If you have some flat champagne left from the expensive bottle you
broke open for libtool-2.2, now might be a good time to finish it off...

Following more than 4 grueling weeks in development, the Libtool Team is
pleased to announce the release of GNU Libtool 2.2.2.

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

This is the first maintenance release from the Libtool 2.2 branch.

Compared to last month's Libtool 2.2 release, the new 2.2.2 has fixed
a regression and other assorted bugs.  Please see the NEWS file
in the distribution for a comprehensive list of user visible changes.

Despite a new and improved M4 interface to Libtool from Autoconf, every
effort has been made to retain backwards compatibility with the 1.5.x
interfaces. Autoupdate (which ships with Autoconf) will help you upgrade
your to the new interface when you are ready to migrate.

GNU Libtool 2.2.2 is available now from  Please
use a mirror to reduce stress on the main gnu machine:

Here are the compressed diffs against 2.2 and the complete

Here are the gpg detached signatures:

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

 gpg --verify libtool-2.2.tar.lzma.sig

You can apply the diff to a freshly unpacked libtool-2.2 distribution
using GNU patch:

 $ tar zxvf libtool-2.2.tar.gz
 $ cd libtool-2.2
 $ gzip -c ../libtool-2.2-2.2.2.diff.gz | patch -p1

You may need to rebootstrap the newly patched libtool tree as described
below, since the timestamps of generated files will have been changed by
GNU patch.

This release was bootstrapped with Autoconf 2.61 and Automake 1.10.1,
but should be useable with any reasonably modern equivalents in your own

Alternatively, you can fetch the unbootstrapped source code from
anonymous cvs by using the following command:

$ cvs -z3 -d :pserver:address@hidden:/sources/libtool \
  co -r release-2-2 libtool

You will then need to have the latest release versions of Automake
(1.10.1) and Autoconf (2.61) 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 -- config.'
The README file explains how to capture the verbose test output.
