GNU C Library version 2.3.4 release

From: Roland McGrath
Subject: GNU C Library version 2.3.4 release
Date: Thu, 27 Jan 2005 23:01:34 -0800

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:

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
