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 is the first full release of multi-language Libtool.

New in 1.5: 2003-04-15

  New in 1.5: 2002-04-15; CVS version 1.4e, Libtool team:
* First stable release of multi-language architecture.
* libtool and libltdl support for Mac OS/X.
* libltdl will now use cygwins dlopen API instead of always forcing
* Support auto-import patch to binutils on cygwin for much improved dll
* Bug fixes.

libtool-1.5 is available now from, along with
diffs and xdeltas against libtool-1.4.3 that are also available
Please use a mirror to reduce stress on the main gnu machine:

This release was bootstrapped with Automake 1.7.3 and Autoconf 2.57,
but is useable with Automake 1.5 and Autoconf 2.50 in your own

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):

  $ cvs -z3 -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/libtool
  $ cvs -z3 -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/libtool \
  co -r release-1-5 libtool

You will then need to have the latest release versions of
Automake (1.7.3) and Autoconf (2.57) installed to
bootstrap the checked out sources yourself.

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>.
