==================================================================

Here is the GNU grep home page:
    http://gnu.org/s/grep/

For a summary of changes and contributors, see:
  http://git.sv.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=grep.git;a=shortlog;h=v2.26
or run this command from a git-cloned grep directory:
  git shortlog v2.25..v2.26

To summarize the 145 gnulib-related changes, run these commands
from a git-cloned grep directory:
  git checkout v2.26
  git submodule summary v2.25
==================================================================

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:
  http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/grep/grep-2.26.tar.xz
  http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/grep/grep-2.26.tar.xz.sig

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:
  http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/grep/grep-2.26.tar.xz
  http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/grep/grep-2.26.tar.xz.sig

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify grep-2.26.tar.xz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 7FD9FCCB000BEEEE

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69.168-2b48
  Automake 1.99a
  Gnulib v0.1-897-g65e6915

* Noteworthy changes in release 2.26 (2016-10-02) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  Grep no longer omits output merely because it follows an output line
  suppressed due to encoding errors.  [bug introduced in grep-2.21]

  In the Shift_JIS locale, grep no longer mistakenly matches in the
  middle of a multibyte character. [bug present since "the beginning"]

** Improvements

  grep can be much faster now when standard output is /dev/null.

  grep -F is now typically much faster when many patterns are given,
  as it now uses the Aho-Corasick algorithm instead of the
  Commentz-Walter algorithm in that case.

  grep -iF is typically much faster in a multibyte locale, if the
  pattern and its case counterparts contain only single byte characters.

  grep with complicated expressions (e.g., back-references) and without
  -i now uses the regex fastmap for better performance.

  In multibyte locales, grep now handles leading "." in patterns more
  efficiently.

  grep now prints a "FILENAME:LINENO: " prefix when diagnosing an
  invalid regular expression that was read from an '-f'-specified file.

No messages in grep-2.26 released [stable]
