GNU indent version 2.2.12 (signature) has just been releases, the first release GNU indent saw in eight years.

Highlights include:

  • New options:
    • -pal / --pointer-align-left and -par / --pointer-align-right
    • -fnc / --fix-nested-comment
    • -gts / --gettext-strings
    • -slc / --single-line-conditionals
    • -as / --align-with-spaces
    • -ut / --use-tabs
    • -nut / --no-tabs
    • -sar / --spaces-around-initializers
    • -ntac / --dont-tab-align-comments
  • C99 and C11 keywords and typeof are now recognised.
  • -linux preset now includes -nbs.
  • -kr preset now includes -par.
  • Lots of bug fixes

I’d like to thank all of the contributors of this release, most importantly:

  • Tim Hentenaar for all of the fixes and refactoring he’s done in his branch
  • Petr Písař, who maintains GNU indent in Red Hat and its derivatives, who’s submitted a lot of fixes and kept supporting users on the mailing list when I couldn’t
  • Santiago Vila, who maintains GNU indent in Debian
  • Daniel P. Valentine, who helped me a lot when I initially took over the maintenance of GNU indent
  • And lots of others who submitted their patches
