5    ---------------------
6    
7    The main reason for having this release so soon after 7.5 is because it fixes a
8    potential buffer overflow problem in pcre_compile() when run in UTF-8 mode. In
9    addition, the CMake configuration files have been brought up to date.

12    Release 7.5 10-Jan-08
13    ---------------------
14    
15    This is mainly a bug-fix release. However the ability to link pcregrep with
16    libz or libbz2 and the ability to link pcretest with libreadline have been
17    added. Also the --line-offsets and --file-offsets options were added to
18    pcregrep.

21  Release 7.3 09-Aug-07  Release 7.4 21-Sep-07
22    ---------------------
23    
24    The only change of specification is the addition of options to control whether
25    \R matches any Unicode line ending (the default) or just CR, LF, and CRLF.
26    Otherwise, the changes are bug fixes and a refactoring to reduce the number of
27    relocations needed in a shared library. There have also been some documentation
28    updates, in particular, some more information about using CMake to build PCRE
29    has been added to the NON-UNIX-USE file.

48       no longer advance by two characters instead of one when an unanchored match
49       fails at CRLF if there are explicit CR or LF matches within the pattern.
50       This gets rid of some anomalous effects that previously occurred.
51    
52    5. Some PCRE-specific settings for varying the newline options at the start of
53       a pattern have been added.
