(2) A Note on Autotools
-For the foreseeable future, the PLplot release will be built with both
-GNU autotools and CMake. Since autotools users are completely dependent on

-by make_tarball.sh below) you must have the correct autotools versions.
+Our old autotools build system is now deprecated in favour of our new CMake
+build system, but nevertheless our release tarball includes
+autotools-generated files such as configure for those users who have not
+made the switch yet. Since autotools users are completely dependent on the

Click add release at the bottom of the page.
Enter the new release name and click "create this release".
+N.B. Release names guide our users to the release they want when they browse
+our file release area. The source release names should be of the form
+"5.x.y Source" (e.g., "5.6.1 Source"). The reason for this suggestion is to
+keep source release names distinct from binary release names.
