The LSB workgroup is pleased to announce the release of the LSB SDK,
version 4.1.8.  Bundles for the x86, x86_64, ia64, and POWER
architectures can be downloaded immediately from:


31- and 64-bit System z (s390/s390x) releases will be ready later today,
and will be made available at the same location.

The biggest change in this release is the inclusion of the LSB 5.0 SDK
elements as a technology preview.  The SDK still defaults to building
for LSB 4.1, so you can upgrade without worrying about accidentally
pulling in new dependencies that aren't ready yet.  The easiest way to
turn on LSB 5.0 support is by setting the LSBCC_LSBVERSION environment
variable to "5.0" before building; for other ways, see the "lsbcc" man page.

In addition, the new SDK contains a number of bug fixes.  For the
complete list, see the release rollup bug in the LSB bug tracker:


Some notable fixes:

 - Fix a bug with GNU autotools choking on some compiler compatibility
warnings. (bug 3886)

 - It is now possible (although not recommended) to statically link
libraries that are part of the LSB. (bug 3862)

 - Linking dynamic libraries now succeeds when no .o files are passed on
the command line. (bug 3915)
