After more than four years, a new version of GNU Hello is available.
The Hello home page with information and the manual is

The main change is to bring the infrastructure up to date, using the
latest released versions of GNU Automake, Autoconf, and Gettext, as well
as common sources from Gnulib.

Detailed NEWS:
* Remove creeping non-feature of reading mail; simplify code accordingly.
* Many improvements to the tests to make them more useful examples.
* --help and --version exit immediately, as specified by GNU standards.
* Distribution:
  . use gnulib for shared source files, such as texinfo.tex and getopt.c.
  . update for automake 1.10, autoconf 2.61, gettext 0.16.
  . new bg (Bulgarian) translation; many updated translations.

Here are the compressed sources:

GNU Hello is written in C.  The GNU Gettext distribution contains hello,
world programs in many other languages (showing how to use Gettext).

Greetings to all,
