bison-3.0.2 released [stable]

Item posted by Akim Demaille <akim> on Thu 05 Dec 2013 02:36:59 PM UTC.

Bison 3.0.2 fixes a few issues with Bison 3.0, see below for details.

Here are the compressed sources:   (3.1MB)   (1.8MB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

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 bison-3.0.2.tar.gz.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 0DDCAA3278D5264E

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.14
  Flex 2.5.37
  Gettext 0.18.3
  Gnulib v0.1-31-g74540d4


* Noteworthy changes in release 3.0.2 (2013-12-05) [stable]

** Bug fixes

*** Generated source files when errors are reported

  When warnings are issued and -Werror is set, bison would still generate
  the source files (*.c, *.h...).  As a consequence, some runs of "make"
  could fail the first time, but not the second (as the files were generated

  This is fixed: bison no longer generates these source files, but, of
  course, still produces the various reports (*.output, *.xml, etc.).

*** %empty is used in reports

  Empty right-hand sides are denoted by '%empty' in all the reports (text,
  dot, XML and formats derived from it).

*** YYERROR and variants

  When C++ variant support is enabled, an error triggered via YYERROR, but
  not caught via error recovery, resulted in a double deletion.

* Noteworthy changes in release 3.0.1 (2013-11-12) [stable]

** Bug fixes

*** Errors in caret diagnostics

  On some platforms, some errors could result in endless diagnostics.

*** Fixes of the -Werror option

  Options such as "-Werror -Wno-error=foo" were still turning "foo"
  diagnostics into errors instead of warnings.  This is fixed.

  Actually, for consistency with GCC, "-Wno-error=foo -Werror" now also
  leaves "foo" diagnostics as warnings.  Similarly, with "-Werror=foo
  -Wno-error", "foo" diagnostics are now errors.

*** GLR Predicates

  As demonstrated in the documentation, one can now leave spaces between
  "%?" and its "{".

*** Installation

  The yacc.1 man page is no longer installed if --disable-yacc was

*** Fixes in the test suite

  Bugs and portability issues.
