53  11. \K was not working if it appeared in an atomic group or in a group that  11. \K was not working if it appeared in an atomic group or in a group that
54      was called as a "subroutine", or in an assertion. Perl 5.11 documents that      was called as a "subroutine", or in an assertion. Perl 5.11 documents that
55      \K is "not well defined" if used in an assertion. PCRE now accepts it if      \K is "not well defined" if used in an assertion. PCRE now accepts it if
56      the assertion is positive, but not if it is negative.      the assertion is positive, but not if it is negative.
57    
58    12. Change 11 fortuitously reduced the size of the stack frame used in the
59        "match()" function of pcre_exec.c by one pointer. Forthcoming
60        implementation of support for (*MARK) will need an extra pointer on the
61        stack; I have reserved it now, so that the stack frame size does not
62        decrease.
63    
64    13. A pattern such as (?P<L1>(?P<L2>0)|(?P>L2)(?P>L1)) in which the only other
65        item in branch that calls a recursion is a subroutine call - as in the
66        second branch in the above example - was incorrectly given the compile-
67        time error "recursive call could loop indefinitely" because pcre_compile()
68        was not correctly checking the subroutine for matching a non-empty string.
69    
70    14. The checks for overrunning compiling workspace could trigger after an
71        overrun had occurred. This is a "should never occur" error, but it can be
72        triggered by pathological patterns such as hundreds of nested parentheses.
73        The checks now trigger 100 bytes before the end of the workspace.
74    
75    15. Fix typo in configure.ac: "srtoq" should be "strtoq".
