We're pleased to announce the release of Automake 1.9.2.

Automake is a tool for automatically generating `'s
suitable for use with Autoconf, compliant with the GNU Makefile
standards, and portable to various make implementations.

This is a small bug-fix release (the list of bug fixed is appended),
and this is also an anniversary release.  Automake was started on
1994-09-19 so it has 10 years today.  To celebrate this the manual
has been augmented with a "History" chapter that tries to go through
these 10 years.

You can find the new release here:

Soon it will also appear on the sources and GNU mirrors listed here:

Finally, here are the MD5 checksums:

    b5799f983d0a062ec59810f6b289cd27  automake-1.9.2.tar.bz2
    6f874b649fc3bbe8c54e7592f6fb2d10  automake-1.9.2.tar.gz

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>.

Bugs fixed in 1.9.2:
* Sort rm commands output for mostlyclean-generic, clean-generic,
  distclean-generic and maintainer-clean-generic, so that the produced
  Makefile is not sensible to the way Perl sorts its hashes.
* Support `+' in the name of directories given to `include'.
* Preserve spaces in the arguments of `compile'.
* `missing' will no longer try to emulate a tool that is run
  with `--version' or `--help' as argument.
* Noteworthy manual update:
  - There is a new chapter about the history of Automake.
