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 has a number of bug fixes and improvements.

New in 1.5.12: Sunday, February 5th, 2005

* Support for Portland Group compiler on GNU/Linux.
* Support (mostly) for DragonFly BSD.
* Updated support for Intel compilers on GNU/Linux.
* Makes use of $datarootdir, which is necessary for Autoconf >= 2.60.
* Fix for a buffer overrun in the opendir/readdir replacement code.
  This code was used by older versions of MinGW only.
* Some compiler/linker flags commonly used to select ABI features are allowed
  through in link mode.  This fixes some 64bit build failures and Darwin's
* Handling of archives that have multiple members with the same name on Darwin.
* Relaxed copyright permissions for the .m4 macro files.
* Bug Fixes, among others for: GNU/Linux search path parsing, a Tru64
  kernel panic, UNICOS, linking of dependent libraries.

This release was bootstrapped with autoconf-2.59 and automake-1.9.4,
but is useable with autoconf-2.50 and automake-1.4 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):

  $ export CVS_RSH=ssh
  $ cvs -z3 -d :ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/libtool \
  co -r release-1-5-12 libtool

You will then need to have the latest release versions of Automake
(1.9.4) and Autoconf (2.59) installed to
bootstrap the checked out sources yourself.

Please report bugs to <address@hidden>.
