Release Notes: When an option is configured out (via ifdef or ifndef attributes), it can now still show up in usage text as "disabled". AutoOpts now supports a new option attribute: aliases. This option will be listed in the usage text, but will be handled exactly as if the aliased-to option were specified. AutoGen tracing output now allows you to prefix a file name with shell-style append redirection to indicate that the output appends to the file (i.e. >>file).

Release Notes: You can now emit text into a suspended output stream. String tables make it very easy to produce an array of characters containing NUL terminated strings. Suffix specifications in the pseudo macro may now construct an output file name format string. The scheme function "version-compare" will allow you to compare two dotted version numbers. #assert is now active in definition files.

Release Notes: AutoFSM was enhanced with the notion of "noop" transition handling. fmemopen() is now used (when possible) for anonymous output (diversions). The Guile function (chdir "...") is now wrapped so that AutoGen can adapt. The definitions parser now uses an FSM parser instead of YACC. AutoOpt-ed programs can now have internationalized usage text. Templates have been added for using getopt(3) or getopt_long(3GNU) to parse options (in lieu of libopts).

Release Notes: This release was the result of a major effort to clean up the configury once and for all. It took two and a half months, and rolls together some noticeable improvements along with the configury fixes.

Release Notes: AutoGen will now accept definitions in the form of XML files. A new program, "xml2ag" has been incorporated into AutoGen. It uses the same commandline options and passes those options and the converted XML to an autogen process.
