6    ---------------------

8    WARNING: saved patterns that were compiled by earlier versions of PCRE must be
9    recompiled for use with 7.2 (necessitated by the addition of \K).
10    
11    Correction to the notes for 7.1: the note about shared libraries for Windows is
12    wrong. Previously, three libraries were built, but each could function
13    independently. For example, the pcreposix library also included all the
14    functions from the basic pcre library. The change is that the three libraries
15    are no longer independent. They are like the Unix libraries. To use the
16    pcreposix functions, for example, you need to link with both the pcreposix and
17    the basic pcre library.
18    
19    Some more features from Perl 5.10 have been added:
20    
21      (?-n) and (?+n) relative references for recursion and subroutines.
22    
23      (Not sure if this one is actually in Perl 5.10)
24      (?(-n) and (?(+n) relative references as conditions.
25    
26      \K to reset the start of the matched string; for example, (foo)\Kbar
27      matches bar preceded by foo, but only sets bar as the matched string
