The GNUstep Base Library, version 1.4.0, is now available.

What is the GNUstep Base Library?

   The GNUstep Base Library is a library of general-purpose,
non-graphical Objective C objects.  For example, it includes classes
for strings, object collections, byte streams, typed coders,
invocations, notifications, notification dispatchers, moments in time,
network ports, remote object messaging support (distributed objects),
and event loops.

   It provides functionality that aims to implement the non-graphical
portion of the OpenStep standard (the Foundation library).

   There is more information available at the GNUstep homepage at

Noteworthy changes in version `1.4.0'

  Since the last stable release, several interface changes have been made.
You must recompile all libraries/tools/applications that depend on

   * Other fixes for Windows - DO now works on Windows

   * New localization/internationalization tool make_strings

   * Traditional Chinese extensions added.

   * New, partially finished Objective-C/Foundation programming manual.

   * Runs on Darwin with GNU runtime.

   * gdomap - security bug fixes.

Where can you get it?  How can you compile it?

   The gnustep-base-1.4.0.tar.gz distribution file has been placed on
`' in `pub/gnustep/core'.

   The library requires gcc 2.8.0 or higher.  See the `GNUstep-HOWTO'
file for more instructions about compiling and installing the library.
