141    36. When /((?:a?)*)*c/ or /((?>a?)*)*c/ was matched against "aac", it set group
142        1 to "aa" instead of to an empty string. The bug affected repeated groups
143        that could potentially match an empty string.
144    
145    37. Optimizing single character iterators in JIT.
146    
147    38. Wide characters specified with \uxxxx in JavaScript mode are now subject to
148        the same checks as \x{...} characters in non-JavaScript mode. Specifically,
149        codepoints that are too big for the mode are faulted, and in a UTF mode,
150        disallowed codepoints are also faulted.
151    
152    39. If PCRE was compiled with UTF support, in three places in the DFA
153        matcher there was code that should only have been obeyed in UTF mode, but
154        was being obeyed unconditionally. In 8-bit mode this could cause incorrect
155        processing when bytes with values greater than 127 were present. In 16-bit
156        mode the bug would be provoked by values in the range 0xfc00 to 0xdc00. In
157        both cases the values are those that cannot be the first data item in a UTF
158        character. The three items that might have provoked this were recursions,
159        possessively repeated groups, and atomic groups.
160    
161    40. Ensure that libpcre is explicitly listed in the link commands for pcretest
162        and pcregrep, because some OS require shared objects to be explicitly
163        passed to ld, causing the link step to fail if they are not.
164    
165    41. There were two incorrect #ifdefs in pcre_study.c, meaning that, in 16-bit
166        mode, patterns that started with \h* or \R* might be incorrectly matched.
