Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 102958
Please use a newer gettext version (>= 0.12)
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:06:21 EST
I notice that current Rawhide uses gettext-0.11.5-2.
The latest version of gettext is 0.12.1 though, and it would be much beneficial
if Red Hat Linux could use a gettext version >= 0.12. The 0.12 and later
versions adds support for UTF-8 in translatable messages, which is increasingly
needed in the GNOME project (see http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99005).
I thus suggest RHL use the latest gettext version, 0.12.1.
I second this. Tried building gtk-gnutella today and it failed because of this.
Also intltool-update seems to barf when used with gettext in rawhide because of
the same issue.
*** Bug 103910 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Testing 0.12 this week and will be include to rawhide once finished.
See also bug 104596.
Why gettext 0.12 and not 0.12.1, btw?
yes i meant 0.12.1 :)
gettext-0.12.1-1 is built. It should be in rawhide once the system is refreshed
