Release Notes: The source code now builds on more recent Linux distributions. The missing manual page for the SCCS "admin" utility has been added.

  •  11 Mar 2007 16:27

Release Notes: Support for SVR4.2-style parallel builds has been added to "make"; this includes the "-B" and "-P" options as well as the ".MUTEX" special target. The "-w" option to suppress warnings has been added to "make". "make" now issues message numbers for use with the "help" command. "make" now accepts comments following "ifeq" and other conditionals. Recursive evaluation of directories with "sccs" for the "info", "tell", and "clean" sub-commands previously omitted some files and has been fixed.

  •  18 Feb 2007 16:56

Release Notes: An "-R" option has been added to the "sccs" command to support recursive operation on directory hierarchies. A manual page has been added for the "sccs" command. "make" now supports the GNU syntax for conditional macros ("target: variable=value"), parse-time conditionals ("ifeq (arg1, arg2)"), and functions ("$(function arguments)"). Text functions, file name functions, the shell function, and warning/error message functions are supplied. "make" can now retrieve data from SCCS s.files in the current directory.

Release Notes: Manual pages for most of the SCCS commands have been added. A new manual page for "make" is available. "make" can now use different shells for POSIX and traditional mode. The "%G%" and "%H%" keywords for "get" now omit leading zeros in month and day numbers, as previous versions of SCCS did. The tools have been ported to HP-UX and AIX.

  •  18 Jan 2007 16:22

Release Notes: The "make" utility has been added, derived from OpenSolaris source code. The "-j jobs" option and the (very limited) GNU make compatibility mode have been enabled in it. The SCCS diff commands now accept the "-a", "-p", and "-B" options to "diff". Portability fixes for SCCS on Mac OS X and FreeBSD are included. The SCCS "get" utility no longer dumps core when it is passed a corrupted s-file. The SCCS utilities now use the O_EXCL flag to open temporary files.

Release Notes: The SCCS "delta" program no longer requires "bdiff" to be installed. Some errors in the SCCS "help" program that were introduced during the port have been fixed again. A non-portable constant has been eliminated.

Release Notes: The SCCS version control system has been added, as a portable derivate of the source code released by Sun.

Release Notes: Shift operators for the "eval" macro are now available in the traditional version of "m4". Functions for wide character handling that were missing in the first release have been included in the libl.a library for "lex".
