Release Notes: The list of user defined database paths were not being parsed correctly and has been fixed.
Release Notes: The program was completely rewritten to improve the internal design and increase its quality.
Release Notes: In this version, a segfault when a regular expression error occured was fixed, as was the --regexp= option. A minor patch was added to the Debian version of slocate. The printf-is-a-macro issue (under gcc 3.0) was fixed, as was a segfault that occurred when -r regex was used with an extra search string.
Release Notes: Fixed some segfaults that occured with random data to -d, -o,and -r options. Added a patch to make it work on Solaris. Added more path permission checking so that even if a file is readable in a directory that is not readable, slocate will not disclose the file to the user.
Release Notes: The heap corruption bug is now really fixed, as well as a bug that caused slocate to segfault when path lengths are too large. A lot of error checking (ie, all mallocs, fchdir, etc) has been added. Autoconf is now used.
Release Notes: This release includes optimizations to the decode_db() function, which increases searching time by up to 40%, and several other code clean-ups.
Release Notes: A fix for a bug which allowed a user to enter a false slocate database path in the environment variable LOCATE_PATH, which could cause slocate to segfault, and checking for database validity.
Release Notes: Fixes for two segfaults (one with the loadfile() function and one that occured when reading multiple databases), a case-insensitive search option, and some code optimizations.
Release Notes: Changed recursive file tree walking code to fts() making it much more stable. Added option to allow exclusion of file systems (NFS, etc). updatedb will now parse the GNU Locate's updatedb.conf file (Linux only).
Release Notes: Optimized some code to make updating the database much faster, patched to allow smoother installation on FreeBSD, and some other minor bug fixes.
