Here is a snapshot of the current development version of Automake,
in case you want to get a grasp of what Automake 1.7 will look like.
The NEWS entry is appended.

If you have some time, please try it on your package and report any
issue you encounter.  Especially, please shout loud if your package
works with 1.6.3 but doesn't with 1.6b.  (It'll better for everybody
if we can fix compatibility issues before the release...)

You can find this snapshot here:

Soon it will also appear on the sources mirrors.

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>.

 - Akim, Alexandre, and Tom

New in 1.6b:
* Autoconf 2.53b is required.
* `aclocal' and `automake' will no longer warn about obsolete
  configure macros.  This is done by `autoconf -Wobsolete'.
  AM_HEADER_TIOCGWINSZ_NEEDS_SYS_IOCTL are obsolete (although still
  supported).  You should use AC_CONFIG_HEADERS, AC_SYS_POSIX_TERMIOS,
  and AC_HEADER_TIOCGWINSZ instead.  `autoupdate' can upgrade
  `' for you.
* Support for per-program and per-library `_CPPFLAGS'.
* New `ctags' target (builds CTAGS files).
* Support for -Wmumble and -Wno-mumble, where mumble is a warning category
  (see `automake --help' or the manual for a list of them).
* Honor the WARNINGS environment variable.
* Omit the call to depcomp when using gcc3: call the compiler directly.
* A new option, std-options, tests that programs support --help and --version
  when `make installcheck' is run.  This is enabled by --gnits.
* Texinfo rules now support the `ps' and `pdf' targets.
* `make distcheck' will enforce DESTDIR support by attempting
  a DESTDIR install.
* `+=' can be used in conditionals, even if the augmented variable
  was defined for another condition.
* Use Autoconf's --trace interface to inspect and get
  a more accurate view of it.
* automake --output-dir is deprecated.
* Many bug fixes.
