This is to announce grep-2.6.1.

grep is a tool to search for strings inside a file.

It's been barely two days since the release of 2.6, but...
This release fixes two new bugs as well as one that was introduced
in grep-2.5.2.  There were also some build, portability and test fixes.

Special thanks to Norihirio Tanaka and Paolo Bonzini for their work.

Here are the compressed sources:   (1.3MB)   (808KB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

To reduce load on the main server, use a mirror listed at:

[*] You can use either of the above signature files 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-2.6.1.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 B9AB9A16

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.65.54-80019
  Automake 1.11a
  Gnulib v0.0-3590-g602e3e6


* Noteworthy changes in release 2.6.1 (2010-03-25) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  Character classes could cause a segmentation fault if they included a
  multibyte character.  [bug introduced in 2.6]

  Character ranges would not work in single-byte character sets other
  than C (for example, ISO-8859-1 or KOI8-R).  [bug introduced in 2.6]

  The output of grep was incorrect for whole-word (-w) matches if the
  patterns included a backreference.

** Portability

  Avoid a link failure on Solaris 8.
