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.
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.
Release Notes: The tools have been ported to HP-UX. New options were added to "diff": a "-B" option to ignore empty lines as in GNU diff and "-1" and "-2" options to restrict the output of "-N" to files from one directory. In "ps", bugs concerning "-L" output on Linux and the handling of zombie processes on Solaris have been fixed.
Release Notes: "ps" and "priocntl" now support the additional scheduling classes from Con Kolivas" Linux patches. The "-a" option of "cpio" (reset access times) has been fixed to work when used in combination with "-p", and to skip files from which no data has been read. The same was done for the "-t" option of "pax".
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'.
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.
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.
Release Notes: It is now possible to compile with dietlibc. grep and pg do not terminate on lines too long to fit in memory anymore. dd closes its output on exit to notify the user about write errors that might be detected at that time. Some fixes for 64-bit architectures and gcc 3.4 were also made.
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.
Release Notes: This release adds support for the FreeBSD platform, and for compilation in GNU bison. It fixes some issues for Playstation Linux, and older Linux distributions in general. It also fixes the '-local' primary for 'find', and improves POSIX.1-2001 pax format support.
