Release Notes: Changes have been made to chmod, copy, cp, cpio, ed, find, fmt, join, mkdir, mkfifo, od, pax, /usr/ucb/ps, shl, tar, and touch. The value 255 is now accepted in interval expressions in traditional (simple) regular expressions.
Release Notes: Support for POSIX.1-2001 has been introduced; since it is partially incompatible with the existing implementation, another set of utilities has been added for it. Many bugs and conformance issues have been fixed.
Release Notes: Minor bugs were fixed in "grep", "more", "od", "pg", "ps", and "tr".
Release Notes: A "-z" option for "grep" is now available to transparently handle input files compressed with "gzip", "bzip2", or "compress". "file" now recognizes UTF-8 encoded text. Fixes were made for "basename", "cmp", "csplit", "ed", "grep", "nl", "od", "pg", "ps", "rm", and "sed".
Release Notes: Some extensions that are commonly used interactively in other tool collections have been added. The documentation has been updated to clearly separate traditional, POSIX, and extension functionality. Some minor bugfixes have also been made, mostly related to multi-byte support or special platforms.
Release Notes: An "-o" option (select oldest process only) was added to "pgrep" and "pkill". Some fixes and performance improvements have been made with respect to UTF-8 (multibyte) locales. Some build problems have also been resolved.
Release Notes: The tools have been ported to OpenBSD. Building on Linux with diet libc works again. Minor bugs have been fixed in 'cal', 'diff', and 'pg'.
Release Notes: It is now possible to use a cross-compiler for building all tools. Some portability fixes have been made. The "date" command was fixed to handle dates given in the form "mmddhhmmccyy" correctly.
Release Notes: It is now possible to build with uClibc. A couple of minor issues with the 'ps' command have been resolved.
Release Notes: The "touch" command ignored any time specifications unless one of "-a" or "-m" was given since release 040620. Use of snprintf() was made more friendly to several commercial compilation environments that do not implement it as in C99. This affects the columnar output for "ls -i", "ls -s", and longer records in "nawk" and "oawk".
