Hi all,

GNU Stow 2.1.1 is now available for download from

and also from the mirrors[1] as soon as they catch up.

This is a minor release which fixes a couple of installation issues
and improves some of the documentation.

Stow is a tool for managing the installation of multiple software
packages to a shared run-time directory tree (e.g. /usr/local) via
symlinks, whilst keeping the files from each package separate.  Whilst
it has often been used to manage system-wide software installations,
it also provides a clean mechanism for managing software and
configuration files in users' home directories[2].  More information
is available at the homepage:

Below are the headline changes since 2.1.0 (see the ChangeLog for full

* Changes in version 2.1.1
** Fixed bug where ./configure --with-pmdir=X was ineffectual.
** Calculated the correct default value for pmdir based on the local Perl 
** Fixed some automake issues (thanks to Stefano Lattarini for spotting these!)
** Improved various bits of documentation.

Happy hacking,
