Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"The Autoconf team is extremely proud (and quite relieved) to announce the release of Autoconf 2.50. As can be guessed from the NEWS excerpt below, profound changes have been made in order to provide a more coherent interface and more user-friendly macros."
** Lots of bug fixes
There have been far too many to enumerate them here. Check out
ChangeLog if you really want to know more.

** Improved documentation
In particular, portability issues are better covered.

** Use of Automake
All the standard GNU Makefile targets are supported. The layout has
changed: m4/ holds the m4 extensions Autoconf needs for its
configuration, doc/ contains the documentation, and tests/ contains
the test suite.

** Man pages are provided
For autoconf, autoreconf, autoupdate, autoheader, autoscan, ifnames,
config.guess, config.sub.
