Greetings all.

This note announces the next release of GNU Awk: version 4.1.3.

This is a bug fix release.  The relevant part of the NEWS file is
appended below.

This release comes soon after 4.1.2 since there was a severe bug
in how regexps were parsed. Thanks to everyone who reported problems
and helped with solutions.

Differences from gawk 4.1.2 are available:

-rw-r--r-- 1 arnold arnold   42147 May 20 18:07 gawk-4.1.2-4.1.3.diff.gz
-rw-rw-r-- 1 arnold arnold     473 May 20 18:12 gawk-4.1.2-4.1.3.diff.gz.sig

The .diff file is a shell script that should be executed in the gawk-4.1.2
source directory.

The usual GNU build incantation should be used:

        tar -xpvzf gawk-4.1.3.tar.gz
        cd gawk-4.1.3
        ./configure && make && make check

The documentation on the GNU web site has will be updated in the next
week or two.

Bug reports should be sent to address@hidden


Arnold Robbins (on behalf of all the gawk developers)
Changes from 4.1.2 to 4.1.3

1. Regexp parsing with extra brackets should now be working again. There
   are several new tests to keep this stuff on track.

2. Updated to latest config.guess and config.sub.

3. A (small) number of bugs have been fixed. See the ChangeLog.
