The GNU M4 team is proud to announce the release of M4 1.4.16.  M4 is a
macro processing language, and among other uses, it is required by GNU
Autoconf for generating configure scripts.

This is a stable release, and fixes several portability concerns, as
well as a couple of regressions identified in the `index' builtin due to
bugs in glibc and gnulib strstr() implementations.

Here are the compressed sources:
  http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/m4/m4-1.4.16.tar.gz   (1.6MB)
  http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/m4/m4-1.4.16.tar.bz2   (1.3MB)
  http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/m4/m4-1.4.16.tar.xz   (984KB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

To reduce load on the main server, use a mirror listed at:

[*] You can use either of the above signature files to verify that
the corresponding file (without the .sig suffix) is intact.  First,
be sure to download both the .sig file and the corresponding tarball.
Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify m4-1.4.16.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 2527436A

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.66
  Automake 1.11.1
  Gnulib v0.0-4944-gef05ce6


* Noteworthy changes in release 1.4.16 (2011-03-01) [stable]

** Fix regressions in the `index' builtin.  On glibc platforms, this
   avoids false positives from a strstr bug in glibc 2.9 through 2.12;
   on many other platforms, it fixes two separate regressions, a false
   positive introduced in 1.4.11 and a false negative in 1.4.15.

** A number of portability improvements inherited from gnulib.
