Bison version 2.4.3 is now available. This is primarily a bug-fix
release. See NEWS below for details.

Here are the compressed sources: (2.2MB) (1.6MB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

To reduce load on the main server, use a mirror listed at:

[*] You can use either of the above signature files 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 bison-2.4.3.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 --recv-keys 263DF280

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
    Autoconf 2.65
    Automake 1.11.1
    Flex 2.5.35
    Gettext 0.18.1
    Gnulib v0.0-4051-gb48afd8


* Changes in version 2.4.3 (2010-08-05):

** Bison now obeys -Werror and --warnings=error for warnings about
      grammar rules that are useless in the parser due to conflicts.

** Problems with spawning M4 on at least FreeBSD 8 and FreeBSD 9 have
      been fixed.

** Failures in the test suite for GCC 4.5 have been fixed.

** Failures in the test suite for some versions of Sun Studio C++ have
      been fixed.

** Contrary to Bison 2.4.2's NEWS entry, it has been decided that
      warnings about undefined %prec identifiers will not be converted to
      errors in Bison 2.5. They will remain warnings, which should be
      sufficient for POSIX while avoiding backward compatibility issues.

** Minor documentation fixes.
