Change Logs

* Thu Oct 25 2018
- pcre2 10.32:
  * pcre2grep now supports the inclusion of binary zeros in
    patterns that are read from files via the -f option.
  * In pcre2_dfa_match(), internal recursive calls no longer use
    the stack for local workspace and local ovectors
  * Updated to Unicode version 11.0.0.
  * (*ACCEPT:ARG), (*FAIL:ARG), and (*COMMIT:ARG) are now supported.
  * Add support for \N{U+dddd}, but only in Unicode mode.
  * Addesupport for (?^) to unset all imnsx options
* Fri Jul 20 2018
- Drop conditions for old distributions
- Do profile guided build
* Sun Feb 18 2018
- Update to new upstream release 10.31
  * New pcre2_config() options: PCRE2_CONFIG_NEVER_BACKSLASH_C and
  * New pcre2_pattern_info() option PCRE2_INFO_EXTRAOPTIONS to
    retrieve the extra compile time options.
  * Public names for all pcre2_compile() error numbers.
    bits to a new field callout_flags in callout blocks.
- use https for main site
- cleanup with spec-cleaner
* Mon Sep 11 2017
- Update to new upstream release 10.30
  * The main interpreter, pcre2_match(), has been refactored into
    a new version that does not use recursive function calls for
    remembering backtracking positions. The new implementation
    allows backtracking into recursive group calls in patterns,
    making it more compatible with Perl. For patterns that have a
    lot of backtracking, the heap is now used, and there is
    explicit limit on the amount, settable by
    pcre2_set_heap_limit(). The "recursion limit" is retained,
    but is renamed as "depth limit".
  * The new option PCRE2_ENDANCHORED insists that a pattern match
    must end at the end of the subject.
  * The new option PCRE2_EXTENDED_MORE implements Perl's /xx
    feature, and pcre2test is upgraded to support it. Setting
    within the pattern by (?xx) is Also supported.
  * (?n) can be used to set PCRE2_NO_AUTO_CAPTURE, because Perl
    now has this.
  * Additional pattern compile options in the compile context are
  * The newline type PCRE2_NEWLINE_NUL is now available.
  * The match limit value now also applies to pcre2_dfa_match()
    as there are patterns that can use up a lot of resources
    without necessarily recursing very deeply.
  * Various minor security fixes found by fuzzers:
    + bsc#1037165: crash for forward reference in lookbehind with
    + CVE-2017-8786: heap-based buffer overflow write in pcre2test
    + CVE-2017-7186: DoS by triggering an invalid Unicode property
    lookup (bsc#1030066)
- Switch source URLs to use HTTP.
* Sat Aug 05 2017
- fix SLE 11 build
* Tue May 02 2017
- pcre2grep can now read .gz and .bz2 files directly
- pcre2test is now built to support line editing
* Thu Feb 16 2017
- pcre2 10.23:
  * major re-factoring of the pcre2_compile.c file
  * Back references are now permitted in lookbehind assertions when
    there are no duplicated group numbers (that is, (?| has not
    been used), and, if the reference is by name, there is only one
    group of that name. The referenced group must, of course be of
    fixed length.
  * \g{+<number>} (e.g. \g{+2} ) is now supported. It is a "forward
    back reference" and can be useful in repetitions
    (compare \g{-<number>} ). Perl does not recognize this syntax.
  * pcre2grep now automatically expands its buffer up to a maximum
    set by --max-buffer-size.
  * The -t option (grand total) has been added to pcre2grep.
  * A new function called pcre2_code_copy_with_tables() exists to
    copy a compiled pattern along with a private copy of the
    character tables that is uses.
* Tue Feb 07 2017
- Explicitly package %{_docdir}/%{name} to fix build with RPM 4.13.
* Mon Aug 01 2016
- pcre2 10.22:
  * The POSIX wrapper function regcomp() did not used to
    support back references and subroutine calls if called with the
    REG_NOSUB option. It now does.
  * A new function, pcre2_code_copy(), is added, to make a copy of a
    compiled pattern.
  * Support for string callouts is added to pcre2grep.
  * Added the PCRE2_NO_JIT option to pcre2_match().
  * The pcre2_get_error_message() function now returns with a
    negative error code if the error number it is given is unknown.
  * Several updates have been made to pcre2test and test scripts
  * Fix CVE-2016-3191: workspace overflow for (*ACCEPT) with deeply
    nested parentheses (boo#971741)
* Sun Jan 17 2016
- Update to new upstream release 10.21
  * Improve JIT matching speed of patterns starting with + or *.
  * Use memchr() to find the first character in an unanchored match
  in 8-bit mode in the interpreter. This gives a significant speed
  * 10.20 broke the handling of [[:>:]] and [[:<:]] in that
  processing them could involve a buffer overflow if the
  following character was an opening parenthesis.
  * 10.20 also introduced a bug in processing this pattern:
  /((?x)(*:0))#(?'/, which was fixed.
  * A callout with a string argument containing an opening square
  bracket, for example /(?C$[$)(?<]/, was incorrectly processed and
  could provoke a buffer overflow.
  * A possessively repeated conditional group that could match an empty
  string, for example, /(?(R))*+/, was incorrectly compiled.
  * The Unicode tables have been updated to Unicode 8.0.0.
  * An empty comment (?#) in a pattern was incorrectly processed and
  could provoke a buffer overflow.
  * Fix infinite recursion in the JIT compiler when certain patterns
  /such as (?:|a|){100}x/ are analysed.
  * Some patterns with character classes involving [: and \\ were
  incorrectly compiled and could cause reading from uninitialized
  memory or an incorrect error diagnosis. Examples are:
  /[[:\\](?<[::]/ and /[[:\\](?'abc')[a:].
  * A missing closing parenthesis for a callout with a string argument
  was not being diagnosed, possibly leading to a buffer overflow.
  * If (?R was followed by - or + incorrect behaviour happened instead
  of a diagnostic.
  * Fixed an issue when \p{Any} inside an xclass did not read the current
  * About 80 more fixes, which you can read about in the ChangeLog
  shipped with the libpcre2-8-0 package.
* Tue Jul 14 2015
- PCRE2 10.20:
  * Callouts with string arguments and the
    pcre2_callout_enumerate() function have been implemented.
  * The PCRE2_NEVER_BACKSLASH_C option, which locks out the use of
    \C, is added.
  * The PCRE2_ALT_CIRCUMFLEX option lets ^ match after a newline at
    the end of a subject in multiline mode.
  * The way named subpatterns are handled has been refactored. The
    previous approach had several bugs.
  * The handling of \c in EBCDIC environments has been changed to
    conform to the perlebcdic document. (Incompatible change)
  * Bugs have been mended, many of them discovered by fuzzers.
* Thu Jun 18 2015

  entirely new API, version 10.10. Not source compatible.

* Thu Apr 30 2015
- pcre 8.37:
  * CVE-2015-2325: Patterns with certain groups specifying a zero
    minimum quantifier caused incorrect code to be compiled,
    leading to an incorrect memory read. [boo#924960]
  * CVE-2015-2326: Specific patterns containing a forward reference
    with subroutine calls caused incorrect code to be compiled
  * CVE-2014-8964: If an assertion condition was quantified with a
    minimum of zero, SIGSEGV or other misbehaviour could occur.
  * further bug fixes as listed in ChangeLog

* Sat May 03 2014
- update to 0.35:
  There have been performance improvements for classes containing non-ASCII
  characters and the "auto-possessification" feature has been extended. Other
  minor improvements have been implemented and bugs fixed. There is a new callout
  feature to enable applications to do detailed stack checks at compile time, to
  avoid running out of stack for deeply nested parentheses. The JIT compiler has
  been extended with experimental support for ARM-64, MIPS-64, and PPC-LE.
