18    ---------------------
19    
20    This is once again mainly a bug-fix release, but there are a couple of new
21    features.
22    
23    
24    Release 7.6 28-Jan-08
25    ---------------------
26    
27    The main reason for having this release so soon after 7.5 is because it fixes a
28    potential buffer overflow problem in pcre_compile() when run in UTF-8 mode. In
29    addition, the CMake configuration files have been brought up to date.
30    
31    
32    Release 7.5 10-Jan-08
33    ---------------------
34    
35    This is mainly a bug-fix release. However the ability to link pcregrep with
36    libz or libbz2 and the ability to link pcretest with libreadline have been
37    added. Also the --line-offsets and --file-offsets options were added to
38    pcregrep.
39    
40    
41    Release 7.4 21-Sep-07
42    ---------------------
43    
44    The only change of specification is the addition of options to control whether
45    \R matches any Unicode line ending (the default) or just CR, LF, and CRLF.
46    Otherwise, the changes are bug fixes and a refactoring to reduce the number of
47    relocations needed in a shared library. There have also been some documentation
48    updates, in particular, some more information about using CMake to build PCRE
49    has been added to the NON-UNIX-USE file.

67    4. When CRLF is a valid line-ending sequence, pcre_exec() and pcre_dfa_exec()
68       no longer advance by two characters instead of one when an unanchored match
69       fails at CRLF if there are explicit CR or LF matches within the pattern.
70       This gets rid of some anomalous effects that previously occurred.
71    
72    5. Some PCRE-specific settings for varying the newline options at the start of
73       a pattern have been added.
