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.

13    Release 8.21 12-Dec-2011
14    ------------------------
15

20    Release 8.20 21-Oct-2011
21    ------------------------

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.

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.
