2  ------------------------  ------------------------
3    
4    Release 8.30
5    ------------
6    
7    Release 8.30 introduces a major new feature: support for 16-bit character
8    strings, compiled as a separate library. There are no new features in the 8-bit
9    library, but some bugs have been mended. However, note that the pcre_info()
10    function, which has been obsolete for over 10 years, has been removed.
11    
12    
13    Release 8.21 12-Dec-2011
14    ------------------------
15    
16    This is almost entirely a bug-fix release. The only new feature is the ability
17    to obtain the size of the memory used by the JIT compiler.
18    
19    
20    Release 8.20 21-Oct-2011
21    ------------------------
22    
23    The main change in this release is the inclusion of Zoltan Herczeg's
24    just-in-time compiler support, which can be accessed by building PCRE with
25    --enable-jit. Large performance benefits can be had in many situations. 8.20
26    also fixes an unfortunate bug that was introduced in 8.13 as well as tidying up
27    a number of infelicities and differences from Perl.
28    
29    
30    Release 8.13 16-Aug-2011
31    ------------------------
32    
33    This is mainly a bug-fix release. There has been a lot of internal refactoring.
34    The Unicode tables have been updated. The only new feature in the library is
35    the passing of *MARK information to callouts. Some additions have been made to
36    pcretest to make testing easier and more comprehensive. There is a new option
37    for pcregrep to adjust its internal buffer size.
38    
39    
40    Release 8.12 15-Jan-2011
41    ------------------------
42    
43    This release fixes some bugs in pcregrep, one of which caused the tests to fail
44    on 64-bit big-endian systems. There are no changes to the code of the library.
45    
46    
47    Release 8.11 10-Dec-2010
48    ------------------------
49    
50    A number of bugs in the library and in pcregrep have been fixed. As always, see
51    ChangeLog for details. The following are the non-bug-fix changes:
52    
53    . Added --match-limit and --recursion-limit to pcregrep.
54    
55    . Added an optional parentheses number to the -o and --only-matching options
56      of pcregrep.
57    
58    . Changed the way PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD affects the matching of $, \z, \Z, \b, and
59      \B.
60    
61    . Added PCRE_ERROR_SHORTUTF8 to make it possible to distinguish between a
62      bad UTF-8 sequence and one that is incomplete when using PCRE_PARTIAL_HARD.
63    
64    . Recognize (*NO_START_OPT) at the start of a pattern to set the PCRE_NO_
65      START_OPTIMIZE option, which is now allowed at compile time
66
