  •  27 Sep 2004 16:42

Release Notes: It is now possible to build with uClibc. A couple of minor issues with the 'ps' command have been resolved.

  •  27 Jul 2004 11:49

Release Notes: The last release made 'pr' enter an infinite loop. 'pr' also does not append a trailing newline anymore with the '-t' option. On NetBSD, 'ps' was printing one process too few.

  •  18 Jul 2004 16:43

Release Notes: The tools were ported to NetBSD, AIX, and FreeBSD 4. 'cat' was fixed to properly work on BSD systems when both input and output are pipes. 'du' does not terminate immediately when it encounters a file system error anymore. 'stty' now supports the '[-]iutf8' mode on Linux.

  •  20 Jun 2004 18:37

Release Notes: An '-L' option has been added to 'ps' to print LWP/thread information. 'tar' has been fixed to handle file names longer than 100 characters correctly with the 'X' and 'u' functions, and to extract archives with absolute path names. Further minor changes and fixes were made for 'cpio', 'pax', 'shl', and 'touch'.

  •  02 Jun 2004 18:36

Release Notes: For ed and sed, the SVR4.2MP and POSIX versions were fixed to handle empty matches in substitution commands (as with 's/ *//g') correctly; same for pax. Minor fixes and enhancements were made to find, lc, pax, rm, and tar.

  •  17 May 2004 13:43

Release Notes: /usr/5bin/nawk was changed to be more compatible with pre-POSIX awk. All nawk versions no longer incorrectly recognize C99 floating point extensions as numbers. A new version of /usr/5bin/deroff has been added. Optimizations for recursive diff runs were made. The temporary output file handling and the exit status of ed were fixed. When cpio, pax, and tar write GNU tar format archives, a '/' is appended to each directory archive entry.

  •  19 Apr 2004 18:44

Release Notes: This release mainly fixes a bug in sed which caused an endless loop when a $ address was specified and the input did not end with a newline character.

  •  18 Mar 2004 08:55

Release Notes: cpio and pax now also support the old UNICOS (release 5 and earlier) cpio format. Performance problems in tar concerning the creation of an archive with many hard linked files were resolved. Some bugfixes for binary, SVR4, and zip format support in cpio and pax were made.

  •  13 Mar 2004 23:27

Release Notes: In this version, cpio and pax now support the SunOS 4 'bar' format. cpio, pax, and tar now automatically decompress gzip and bzip2 compressed archives even if input comes from a pipe or tape. Further enhancements/fixes were made to cpio and pax regarding checksums and handling of read errors. A bug in pr that sometimes caused the first character on a page to be garbled was fixed.

  •  06 Mar 2004 07:58

Release Notes: For tar, a directory name given to exclude in the file with the "X" key now causes all files below that directory to be excluded. An internal buffer reallocation error in sed has been fixed. Further minor changes have been made to pg, tape, and tar.
