7    1.  A class with a very large number of characters with codepoints greater
8        than 255 (in UTF-8 mode, of course), caused a buffer overflow.

108      RE::GlobalReplace(). As a result, the number of replacements returned was      RE::GlobalReplace(). As a result, the number of replacements returned was
109      double what it should be. I have removed one of the increments.      double what it should be. I removed one of the increments, but Craig sent a
110        later patch that removed the other one (the right fix) and added unit tests
111        that check the return values (which was not done before).

123    22. In UTF-8 mode, with newline set to "any", a pattern such as .*a.*=.b.*
124        crashed when matching a string such as a\x{2029}b (note that \x{2029} is a
125        UTF-8 newline character). The key issue is that the pattern starts .*;
126        this means that the match must be either at the beginning, or after a
127        newline. The bug was in the code for advancing after a failed match and
128        checking that the new position followed a newline. It was not taking
129        account of UTF-8 characters correctly.
131    23. PCRE was behaving differently from Perl in the way it recognized POSIX
132        character classes. PCRE was not treating the sequence [:...:] as a
133        character class unless the ... were all letters. Perl, however, seems to
134        allow any characters between [: and :], though of course it rejects as
135        unknown any "names" that contain non-letters, because all the known class
136        names consist only of letters. Thus, Perl gives an error for [[:1234:]],
137        for example, whereas PCRE did not - it did not recognize a POSIX character
138        class. This seemed a bit dangerous, so the code has been changed to be
139        closer to Perl. The behaviour is not identical to Perl, because PCRE will
140        diagnose an unknown class for, for example, [[:l\ower:]] where Perl will
141        treat it as [[:lower:]]. However, PCRE does now give "unknown" errors where
142        Perl does, and where it didn't before.
144    24. Rewrite so as to remove the single use of %n from pcregrep because in some
145        Windows environments %n is disabled by default.
