The zlib maintainer has released a new version for testing. One important change: -fPIC is automatically added to the shared libs CFLAGS, so no more worrying about that. Me and Tushar are attributed in the ChangeLog. Yay! Goodbye obnoxious note and workarounds.
pkgconfig and DESTDIR support are also added. I don't think the code has changed much besides for win32, but there is now a symbol map for proper library versioning on Linux (for zlib-1.2.x+). See the forwarded message below for the release announcement and download location. If anyone wants to test it out and finds bugs, you can try to get on the zlib-devel list (pending approval of the maintainer). Or, you can drop me a note since I'm already on the list. -- Dan ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Mark Adler <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Date: Aug 16, 2006 8:44 AM Subject: [Zlib-devel] zlib 184.108.40.206 released for testing To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Magnanimous testers and patchers, zlib 220.127.116.11 is available for testing here: http://alumnus.caltech.edu/~madler/zlib-18.104.22.168.tar.gz The usual signatures are below. As always, you can find the changes in the ChangeLog. There is a new "todo" directory with Cosmin's work- in-progress Makefile to build the static and shared libraries at the same time. If anyone would like to pick up where he left off, that would be great. Thanks again Cosmin for your work on that and your cos4 release. If your favorite patch didn't make it into this version, please let me know and we'll try for the next one.
