Subject: GNU C Library version 2.3.4 release
Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2005 07:29:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Version 2.3.4 of the GNU C Library is now available for download at:

Please see and for mirror sites around the world.

This release fixes many bugs, and adds a few features.  See the NEWS file
in the distribution for details.  For information on reporting bugs in
the GNU C Library, see:

Be advised that updating the C library is no trivial task and it is very
easy to damage one's system.  Unless you are participating in the
development and maintenance of the C library, you should use a binary
distribution instead.  The code in this release has already been built
and tested by maintainers of GNU/Linux and GNU/Hurd binary distributions
basing their systems on it.

We anticipate that future 2.3.x releases of the GNU C Library will be
stable releases primarily for bug fixes, and probably will not contain
new features or interfaces.  New development continues in parallel with
the stable maintenance track, and 2.4.x releases will begin when that
code is ready.

The following files are available:

effe0e61491150d22eb724137868f239  glibc-linuxthreads-2.3.4.tar.gz	(315K)

Note the `linuxthreads' package is required to build a useful system C
library for use with Linux kernels prior to version 2.6.  To build a
configuration supporting only Linux 2.6 kernels or to build for
GNU/Hurd, the package is not required.  The main glibc-2.3.4 release
package contains the Native POSIX Threads Library (NPTL) contributed
by Ulrich Drepper, which supports Linux 2.6 kernels only.

This release like all others was made possible by the contributions of many
people.  We are very grateful to all of them, and chief among those are:

		Ulrich Drepper
		Jakub Jelinek
		Richard Henderson
		Andreas Jaeger
		Paolo Bonzini
		Andreas Schwab
		Steven Munroe
		Thorsten Kukuk
		Kaz Kojima
		H.J. Lu
		Paul Eggert
		GOTO Masanori
		Carlos O'Donell
		David Mosberger
		Alfred M. Szmidt
		Alexandre Oliva
		Bruno Haible
		Maciej W. Rozycki
