6    ---------------------
8    There are no new features in this release. A few bugs are fixed (see ChangeLog
9    for details), but the major change is a complete re-implementation of the build
10    system. This now has full Autotools support and so is now "standard" in some
11    sense. It should help with compiling PCRE in a wide variety of environments.
13    NOTE: when building shared libraries for Windows, three dlls are now built,
14    called libpcre, libpcreposix, and libpcrecpp. Previously, everything was
15    included in a single dll.
17    Another important change is that the dftables auxiliary program is no longer
18    compiled and run at "make" time by default. Instead, a default set of character
19    tables (assuming ASCII coding) is used. If you want to use dftables to generate
20    the character tables as previously, add --enable-rebuild-chartables to the
21    "configure" command. You must do this if you are compiling PCRE to run on a
22    system that uses EBCDIC code.
24    There is a discussion about character tables in the README file. The default is
25    not to use dftables so that that there is no problem when cross-compiling.
