I'm delighted to announce version 2.8 of GNU hello. This release is my
first as maintainer; thanks to Karl Berry for inviting me to take over
from him, and then providing much useful guidance.

This release contains no significant code changes; rather, the version
increment is justified an overhaul of the build system to bring it
more in line with modern mainstream GNU practice, and in particular,
to make maximum use of the excellent gnulib. In the process I've found
and fixed many nits.

The VCS has also been updated, from CVS to git.

Finally, this release includes several new and updated translations
from the Translation Project. A big thank-you to all the translators!

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify hello-2.8.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 68089F7380EE4A00

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.68
  Automake 1.11.3
  Gnulib v0.0-7332-g40be4b8


* Noteworthy changes in release 2.8 (2012-04-19) [stable]

The build system has been overhauled to be more in line with
mainstream modern GNU practice, and various translations have been
updated (thanks to the Translation Project!).
