2  ------------------------  ------------------------
3    
4    Release 8.20 21-Oct-2011
5    ------------------------
6    
7    The main change in this release is the inclusion of Zoltan Herczeg's
8    just-in-time compiler support, which can be accessed by building PCRE with
9    --enable-jit. Large performance benefits can be had in many situations. 8.20
10    also fixes an unfortunate bug that was introduced in 8.13 as well as tidying up
11    a number of infelicities and differences from Perl.
12    
13    
14    Release 8.13 16-Aug-2011
15    ------------------------
16    
17    This is mainly a bug-fix release. There has been a lot of internal refactoring.
18    The Unicode tables have been updated. The only new feature in the library is
19    the passing of *MARK information to callouts. Some additions have been made to
20    pcretest to make testing easier and more comprehensive. There is a new option
21    for pcregrep to adjust its internal buffer size.
22    
23    
24    Release 8.12 15-Jan-2011
25    ------------------------
26    
27    This release fixes some bugs in pcregrep, one of which caused the tests to fail
28    on 64-bit big-endian systems. There are no changes to the code of the library.
29    
30    
31    Release 8.11 10-Dec-2010
32    ------------------------
33    
34    A number of bugs in the library and in pcregrep have been fixed. As always, see
35    ChangeLog for details. The following are the non-bug-fix changes:
36    
37    . Added --match-limit and --recursion-limit to pcregrep.
38    
39    . Added an optional parentheses number to the -o and --only-matching options
40      of pcregrep.
41    
42    . Changed the way PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD affects the matching of $, \z, \Z, \b, and
43      \B.
44    
45    . Added PCRE_ERROR_SHORTUTF8 to make it possible to distinguish between a
46      bad UTF-8 sequence and one that is incomplete when using PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD.
47    
48    . Recognize (*NO_START_OPT) at the start of a pattern to set the PCRE_NO_
49      START_OPTIMIZE option, which is now allowed at compile time
50    
51    
52    Release 8.10 25-Jun-2010
53    ------------------------
54    
55    There are two major additions: support for (*MARK) and friends, and the option
56    PCRE_UCP, which changes the behaviour of \b, \d, \s, and \w (and their
57    opposites) so that they make use of Unicode properties. There are also a number
58    of lesser new features, and several bugs have been fixed. A new option,
59    --line-buffered, has been added to pcregrep, for use when it is connected to
60    pipes.
