6    ---------------------

8    There is only one new feature in this release: a linebreak setting of
9    PCRE_NEWLINE_ANYCRLF. It is a cut-down version of PCRE_NEWLINE_ANY, which
10    recognizes only CRLF, CR, and LF as linebreaks.
11    
12    A few bugs are fixed (see ChangeLog for details), but the major change is a
13    complete re-implementation of the build system. This now has full Autotools
14    support and so is now "standard" in some sense. It should help with compiling
15    PCRE in a wide variety of environments.
16    
17    NOTE: when building shared libraries for Windows, three dlls are now built,
18    called libpcre, libpcreposix, and libpcrecpp. Previously, everything was
19    included in a single dll.
20    
21    Another important change is that the dftables auxiliary program is no longer
22    compiled and run at "make" time by default. Instead, a default set of character
23    tables (assuming ASCII coding) is used. If you want to use dftables to generate
24    the character tables as previously, add --enable-rebuild-chartables to the
25    "configure" command. You must do this if you are compiling PCRE to run on a
26    system that uses EBCDIC code.
27    
28    There is a discussion about character tables in the README file. The default is
29    not to use dftables so that that there is no problem when cross-compiling.
