2  ------------------------  ------------------------
3    
4    Release 8.00 19-Oct-09
5    ----------------------
6    
7    Bugs have been fixed in the library and in pcregrep. There are also some
8    enhancements. Restrictions on patterns used for partial matching have been
9    removed, extra information is given for partial matches, the partial matching
10    process has been improved, and an option to make a partial match override a
11    full match is available. The "study" process has been enhanced by finding a
12    lower bound matching length. Groups with duplicate numbers may now have
13    duplicated names without the use of PCRE_DUPNAMES. However, they may not have
14    different names. The documentation has been revised to reflect these changes.
15    The version number has been expanded to 3 digits as it is clear that the rate
16    of change is not slowing down.

38    
39    Release 7.6 28-Jan-08
40    ---------------------
41    
42    The main reason for having this release so soon after 7.5 is because it fixes a
43    potential buffer overflow problem in pcre_compile() when run in UTF-8 mode. In
44    addition, the CMake configuration files have been brought up to date.
45    
46    
47    Release 7.5 10-Jan-08
48    ---------------------
49    
50    This is mainly a bug-fix release. However the ability to link pcregrep with
51    libz or libbz2 and the ability to link pcretest with libreadline have been
52    added. Also the --line-offsets and --file-offsets options were added to
53    pcregrep.
