The Linux Standard Base (LSB) project is pleased to announce several
updates to its suites of tools and tests.  These updates are now
available from the LSB Download page:


First of all, the LSB Software Development Kit (SDK) has been updated
to version 4.1.3, with a number of benefits and bug fixes:

 - Most importantly, the LSB SDK has been updated and tested with
   newer releases of gcc.  We now support all versions of gcc from
   version 3.4.x to version 4.6.x.

 - The lsbcc utility now reports its own version, as well as the
   version of the underlying compiler.

 - Support for building Qt 4 applications has been improved, with new
   names for Qt 4 utilities provided.

 - Feature sets and options have been normalized between lsbcc,
   lsbc++, and lsbcpp.

 - A number of bugs have been fixed, including illegal instruction
   issues on PowerPC 32-bit builds, missing macros, and misplaced
   functions in headers.

For the complete list of fixes and enhancements released in the 4.1.3
SDK, please see our rollup bug in the LSB's bug tracker:


Second, we have released new versions of the Linux Application Checker
and the Linux Distribution Checker.  Enhancements to these
applications include:

 - Harmonization with the recent rebuilding of the Linux Foundation's

 - Updates to fix compatibility with newer versions of Perl.

 - Many bug fixes.

For a complete list, see our rollup bug in the LSB's bug tracker:


Finally, we have released the first set of updates to the distribution
tests for LSB 4.1.  These updates fix a number of bugs in the tests,
mostly to address issues found when running against newer
distributions.  As with the other two updates, a complete list of
changes can be found on the LSB bug tracker:
