What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· This is a bug-fixing release, partly remedying to the too-abrupt removal on our part of some long-obsoleted macros which were however still used "in the wild": AM_CONFIG_HEADER and (to a much lesser degree) AM_PROG_CC_STDC. Now the use of these obsolete macros elicit clear and helpful error messages, rather than obscure failures that give no hint about to the reason behind them.
