Greetings all.

This note announces the next release of GNU Awk: version 5.0.1.

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

This release represents a lot of work by a number of people.
I thank them all for their contributions, I could not have done it
by myself.

The usual GNU build incantation should be used:

        tar -xpvzf gawk-5.0.1.tar.gz
        cd gawk-5.0.1
        ./configure && make && make check

Bug reports should be sent to address@hidden.

Changes from 5.0.0 to 5.0.1

1. A number of ChangeLog.1 files that were left out of the distribution
   have been restored.

2. Multiple syntax errors should no longer be able to cause a core dump.

3. Sandbox mode now disallows assigning new filename values in ARGV that
   were not there when gawk was invoked.

4. There are many small documentation improvements in the manual.

5. The new argument "no-ext" to --lint disables ``XXX is a gawk extension''
   lint warnings.

6. Infrastructure upgrades: Bison 3.4.

N. A number of bugs, some of them quite significant, have been fixed.
   See the ChangeLog for details.
