Libtool

GNU libtool is a generic library support script. Libtool hides the complexity of using shared and static libraries behind a consistent, portable interface. Libtool supports building static libraries on all platforms.

Release Notes: The new libtoolize option --no-warn has been added. The --debug, --no-warn, --quiet, and --verbose options can be passed to libtoolize through the environment variable LIBTOOLIZE_OPTIONS. Several bugs with macros have been fixed.

Release Notes: This release fixes setting of shlibpath variables (LD_LIBRARY_PATH and similar) and the order of link search paths for creating and testing of uninstalled libraries. Silent failure of 'libtoolize --ltdl' if libltdl files are not present has been fixed. If non-pic objects were not compiled, and libtool is called in link mode, libtool no longer silently creates an empty archive, but rather falls back to pic objects. A potential denial of service by malicious other users for tmpdir directory creation at relink time has been fixed.

Release Notes: A long-standing Solaris CC limitation failing with -no-undefined was fixed. Yet another regression with ownership of libltdl data files was fixed. A work-around was made for breakage on Tru64 due to shell bugs. A regression with spurious object name conflicts against installed static libraries which were erronously treated as convenience libraries was fixed. Building of packages on Cygwin managed mounts was fixed.

AFAIK, the latest stable is 1.3.5. And sure, the URL should point to ftp.gnu.org and not to alpha.gnu.org-it seems that GNU people do not

delete alpha releases even if they have been already published as 'release' versions.

stable?
If 1.3.4 is really a stable release you should update it to ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libtool/ and not to alpha.gnu.org/gnu/libt.... Doing this I'm pretty sure people will continue using 1.3.3. From the site: "The latest official alpha release is available for testing from alpha.gnu.org or one of its mirrors..
