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.
Release Notes: This release fixes installation problems apparent in 1.5.4.
