7    
8    The only change of specification is the addition of options to control whether
9    \R matches any Unicode line ending (the default) or just CR, LF, and CRLF.
10    Otherwise, the changes are bug fixes and a refactoring to reduce the number of
11    relocations needed in a shared library.

14    Release 7.3 28-Aug-07
15    ---------------------
16    
17    Most changes are bug fixes. Some that are not:
18    
19    1. There is some support for Perl 5.10's experimental "backtracking control
20       verbs" such as (*PRUNE).
21    
22    2. UTF-8 checking is now as per RFC 3629 instead of RFC 2279; this is more
23       restrictive in the strings it accepts.
24    
25    3. Checking for potential integer overflow has been made more dynamic, and as a
26       consequence there is no longer a hard limit on the size of a subpattern that
27       has a limited repeat count.
28    
29    4. When CRLF is a valid line-ending sequence, pcre_exec() and pcre_dfa_exec()
30       no longer advance by two characters instead of one when an unanchored match
31       fails at CRLF if there are explicit CR or LF matches within the pattern.
32       This gets rid of some anomalous effects that previously occurred.
33    
34    5. Some PCRE-specific settings for varying the newline options at the start of
35       a pattern have been added.
