grep-3.3 released [stable]

Item posted by Jim Meyering <meyering> on Fri 21 Dec 2018 04:51:38 AM UTC.

Here's a snap release to fix a regression introduced in grep-3.2.
See the NEWS below for details:

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] 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-3.3.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 --recv-keys 7FD9FCCB000BEEEE

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69.197-b8fd7
  Automake 1.16a
  Gnulib v0.1-2302-g5d6a3cdd5


* Noteworthy changes in release 3.3 (2018-12-20) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  Some uses of \b in the C locale and with the DFA matcher would fail, e.g.,
  the following would print nothing (it should print the input line):
    echo 123-x|LC_ALL=C grep '.\bx'
  Using a multibyte locale, using certain regexp constructs (some ranges,
  backreferences), or forcing use of the PCRE matcher via --perl-regexp (-P)
  would avoid the bug.
