12    ------------------------
13    
14    The main change in this release is the inclusion of Zoltan Herczeg's
15    just-in-time compiler support, which can be accessed by building PCRE with
16    --enable-jit. Large performance benefits can be had in many situations. 8.20
17    also fixes an unfortunate bug that was introduced in 8.13 as well as tidying up
18    a number of infelicities and differences from Perl.

22    ------------------------

24    This is mainly a bug-fix release. There has been a lot of internal refactoring.
25    The Unicode tables have been updated. The only new feature in the library is
26    the passing of *MARK information to callouts. Some additions have been made to
27    pcretest to make testing easier and more comprehensive. There is a new option
28    for pcregrep to adjust its internal buffer size.

32    ------------------------
33    
34    This release fixes some bugs in pcregrep, one of which caused the tests to fail

39    ------------------------
40    
41    A number of bugs in the library and in pcregrep have been fixed. As always, see

43    
44    . Added --match-limit and --recursion-limit to pcregrep.
45    
46    . Added an optional parentheses number to the -o and --only-matching options
47      of pcregrep.
48    
49    . Changed the way PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD affects the matching of $, \z, \Z, \b, and
50      \B.
51    
52    . Added PCRE_ERROR_SHORTUTF8 to make it possible to distinguish between a
53      bad UTF-8 sequence and one that is incomplete when using PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD.
54    
55    . Recognize (*NO_START_OPT) at the start of a pattern to set the PCRE_NO_
56      START_OPTIMIZE option, which is now allowed at compile time
