42    
43  6.  When matching is performed using JIT-compiled code, the flag bit  6.  If JIT is requested using /S++ or -s++ (instead of just /S+ or -s+) when
44      PCRE_EXTRA_USED_JIT is set in the pcre_extra block and can be tested by the      running pcretest, the text "(JIT)" added to the output whenever JIT is
45      caller. This bit is checked by pcretest if JIT is requested by /S++ or -s++      actually used to run the match.

 7.  Individual JIT compile options can be set in pcretest by following -s+[+]  
48      or /S+[+] with a digit between 1 and 7.      or /S+[+] with a digit between 1 and 7.
49    
50    8.  OP_NOT now supports any UTF character not just single-byte ones.
51    
52    9.  (*MARK) control verb is now supported by the JIT compiler.
53    
54    10. The command "./RunTest list" lists the available tests without actually
55        running any of them. (Because I keep forgetting what they all are.)
56    
57    11. Add PCRE_INFO_MAXLOOKBEHIND.
58    
59    12. Applied a (slightly modified) user-supplied patch that improves performance
60        when the heap is used for recursion (compiled with --disable-stack-for-
61        recursion). Instead of malloc and free for each heap frame each time a
62        logical recursion happens, frames are retained on a chain and re-used where
63        possible. This sometimes gives as much as 30% improvement.
64    
65    13. As documented, (*COMMIT) is now confined to within a recursive subpattern
66        call.
67    
68    14. As documented, (*COMMIT) is now confined to within a positive assertion.
69    
70    15. It is now possible to link pcretest with libedit as an alternative to
71        libreadline.
72    
73    16. (*COMMIT) control verb is now supported by the JIT compiler.
74    
75    17. The Unicode data tables have been updated to Unicode 6.1.0.
76    
77    18. Added --file-list option to pcregrep.
78    
79    19. Added binary file support to pcregrep, including the -a, --binary-files,
80        -I, and --text options.
81    
82    20. The madvise function is renamed for posix_madvise for QNX compatibility
83        reasons. Fixed by Giuseppe D'Angelo.
84    
85    21. Fixed a bug for backward assertions with REVERSE 0 in the JIT compiler.
86    
87    22. Changed the option for creating symbolic links for 16-bit man pages from
88        -s to -sf so that re-installing does not cause issues.
89    
90    23. Support PCRE_NO_START_OPTIMIZE in JIT as (*MARK) support requires it.
91    
92    24. Fixed a very old bug in pcretest that caused errors with restarted DFA
93        matches in certain environments (the workspace was not being correctly
94        retained). Also added to pcre_dfa_exec() a simple plausibility check on
95        some of the workspace data at the beginning of a restart.
96    
97    25. \s*\R was auto-possessifying the \s* when it should not, whereas \S*\R
98        was not doing so when it should - probably a typo introduced by SVN 528
99        (change 8.10/14).
100    
101    26. When PCRE_UCP was not set, \w+\x{c4} was incorrectly auto-possessifying the
102        \w+ when the character tables indicated that \x{c4} was a word character.
103        There were several related cases, all because the tests for doing a table
104        lookup were testing for characters less than 127 instead of 255.
105    
106    27. If a pattern contains capturing parentheses that are not used in a match,
107        their slots in the ovector are set to -1. For those that are higher than
108        any matched groups, this happens at the end of processing. In the case when
109        there were back references that the ovector was too small to contain
110        (causing temporary malloc'd memory to be used during matching), and the
111        highest capturing number was not used, memory off the end of the ovector
112        was incorrectly being set to -1. (It was using the size of the temporary
113        memory instead of the true size.)
114    
115    28. To catch bugs like 27 using valgrind, when pcretest is asked to specify an
116        ovector size, it uses memory at the end of the block that it has got.
117    
118    29. Check for an overlong MARK name and give an error at compile time. The
119        limit is 255 for the 8-bit library and 65535 for the 16-bit library.
120    
121    30. JIT compiler update.
122    
123    31. JIT is now supported on jailbroken iOS devices. Thanks for Ruiger
124        Rill for the patch.
125    
126    32. Put spaces around SLJIT_PRINT_D in the JIT compiler. Required by CXX11.
127    
128    33. Variable renamings in the PCRE-JIT compiler. No functionality change.
129    
130    34. Fixed typos in pcregrep: in two places there was SUPPORT_LIBZ2 instead of
131        SUPPORT_LIBBZ2. This caused a build problem when bzip2 but not gzip (zlib)
132        was enabled.
133    
134    35. Improve JIT code generation for greedy plus quantifier.
135    
136    36. When /((?:a?)*)*c/ or /((?>a?)*)*c/ was matched against "aac", it set group
137        1 to "aa" instead of to an empty string. The bug affected repeated groups
138        that could potentially match an empty string.
139    
140    37. Optimizing single character iterators in JIT.
141    
142    38. Wide characters specified with \uxxxx in JavaScript mode are now subject to
143        the same checks as \x{...} characters in non-JavaScript mode. Specifically,
144        codepoints that are too big for the mode are faulted, and in a UTF mode,
145        disallowed codepoints are also faulted.
146    
147    39. If PCRE was compiled with UTF support, in three places in the DFA
148        matcher there was code that should only have been obeyed in UTF mode, but
149        was being obeyed unconditionally. In 8-bit mode this could cause incorrect
150        processing when bytes with values greater than 127 were present. In 16-bit
151        mode the bug would be provoked by values in the range 0xfc00 to 0xdc00. In
152        both cases the values are those that cannot be the first data item in a UTF
153        character. The three items that might have provoked this were recursions,
154        possessively repeated groups, and atomic groups.
155    
156    40. Ensure that libpcre is explicitly listed in the link commands for pcretest
157        and pcregrep, because some OS require shared objects to be explicitly
158        passed to ld, causing the link step to fail if they are not.
159    
160    41. There were two incorrect #ifdefs in pcre_study.c, meaning that, in 16-bit
161        mode, patterns that started with \h* or \R* might be incorrectly matched.
162
