2  ------------------------  ------------------------
3    
4    Release 8.10 03-Jun-2010
5    ------------------------
6    
7    There are two major additions: support for (*MAKR) and friends, and the option
8    PCRE_UCP, which changes the behaviour of \b, \d, \s, and \w (and their
9    opposites) so that they make use of Unicode properties. There are also a number
10    of lesser new features, and several bugs have been fixed. A new option,
11    --line-buffered, has been added to pcregrep, for use when it is connected to
12    pipes.
13    
14    
15    Release 8.02 19-Mar-2010
16    ------------------------
17    
18    Another bug-fix release.
19    
20    
21    Release 8.01 19-Jan-2010
22    ------------------------
23    
24    This is a bug-fix release. Several bugs in the code itself and some bugs and
25    infelicities in the build system have been fixed.
26    
27    
28    Release 8.00 19-Oct-09
29    ----------------------
30    
31    Bugs have been fixed in the library and in pcregrep. There are also some
32    enhancements. Restrictions on patterns used for partial matching have been
33    removed, extra information is given for partial matches, the partial matching
34    process has been improved, and an option to make a partial match override a
35    full match is available. The "study" process has been enhanced by finding a
36    lower bound matching length. Groups with duplicate numbers may now have
37    duplicated names without the use of PCRE_DUPNAMES. However, they may not have
38    different names. The documentation has been revised to reflect these changes.
39    The version number has been expanded to 3 digits as it is clear that the rate
40    of change is not slowing down.
41    
42    
43    Release 7.9 11-Apr-09
44    ---------------------
45    
46    Mostly bugfixes and tidies with just a couple of minor functional additions.
47    
48    
49    Release 7.8 05-Sep-08
50    ---------------------
51    
52    More bug fixes, plus a performance improvement in Unicode character property
53    lookup.
54    
55    
56    Release 7.7 07-May-08
57    ---------------------
58    
59    This is once again mainly a bug-fix release, but there are a couple of new
60    features.
61    
62    
63    Release 7.6 28-Jan-08
64    ---------------------
65    
66    The main reason for having this release so soon after 7.5 is because it fixes a
67    potential buffer overflow problem in pcre_compile() when run in UTF-8 mode. In
68    addition, the CMake configuration files have been brought up to date.
69    
70    
71    Release 7.5 10-Jan-08
72    ---------------------
73    
74    This is mainly a bug-fix release. However the ability to link pcregrep with
75    libz or libbz2 and the ability to link pcretest with libreadline have been
76    added. Also the --line-offsets and --file-offsets options were added to
77    pcregrep.
