Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : grep
Version     : 2.5.1                     =20
Release     : 31.4                 =20
Summary     : The GNU versions of grep pattern matching utilities.
Description :
The GNU versions of commonly used grep utilities.  Grep searches
through textual input for lines which contain a match to a specified
pattern and then prints the matching lines.  GNU's grep utilities
include grep, egrep and fgrep.

You should install grep on your system, because it is a very useful
utility for searching through text.

Update Information:

This update fixes a small regression in handling multibyte input for
"grep -Fi", and further improves performance when processing UTF-8 input.

* Tue Dec 21 2004 Tim Waugh  2.5.1-31.4

- Fixed -Fi for multibyte input (bug #143079).
- Bypass kwset matching when ignoring case and processing multibyte input
  (bug #143079).

* Tue Dec 14 2004 Tim Waugh  2.5.1-31.3

- Further UTF-8 processing avoided since a 'n' byte is always an
  end-of-line character in that encoding.
