2015-05-1919 May 2015 08:46 minor feature: libschily now contains a getdelim() implementation. libschily: *mem.c may now have user defined exit() code. Various forgotten entries in various linker map files have been added. POSIX patch no longer has artificial limits and now permits lines of arbitrary length. POSIX patch no longer dumps core when out of memory. POSIX patch now conforms to the POSIX exit code list. POSIX patch now follows the POSIX filename determination rules. POSIX patch now has new options -W+ -Wposix and -Wall. POSIX patch now passes extensive automated tests. POSIX patch now reports version 3.0.
2015-05-0606 May 2015 12:46 minor feature: Trying to always use W*() macros for wait(2) status. Initially publish old man pages for libschily. Libfind fixed a bug in the idcache implementation. Star now again correctly deals with non-null-terminated user/group-names on old star archives. Many bug-fixes for the POSIX patch implementation. A bug-fix for the Solaris based diff(1) with -U0. SCCS now passes all regression tests on Haiku except for the ones caused by a localtime() bug in libc on Haiku.
2015-04-2424 Apr 2015 10:49 minor feature: The Bourne Shell and SCCS now work on Haiku. The problem was UNIX incompatible signal numbering and a different bit-ordering in the wait(2) status that was not address by historic UNIX code. A new program isaexec(1) was added. Isaexec is an attempt to write a portable version of the Solaris isaexec program.
2015-04-1616 Apr 2015 10:44 minor feature: Support for Haiku on x86-64 was added. Some bug-fixes and speedups for smake have been introduced. bsh/wait3.c now returns pid_t - report if this causes problems with UnixWare. bsh and Bourne Shell now write HOME /.globals and .locls with mode 0600 and do not read them in case that other people have write access to that files. The Bourne Shell now supports to specify options in more than one argument. The Bourne Shell now supports "set -o vi" and "set -o ved". Fixed a bug in libgetopt that could cause a SIGSEGV in the Bourne Shell in case that getopts(1) was used incorrectly.
2015-04-0808 Apr 2015 10:13 minor feature: Several fixes in the Bourne Shell (mainly for bugs introduced with vfork() support and the portability change sbrk() - malloc()) discovered by Heiko Eißfeldt. CPP now supports the environment SUNPRO_DEPENDENCIES.
2015-03-3030 Mar 2015 15:00 minor feature: smake version bumped to 1.2.5 cdrtools version bumped to 3.01a28 Support for ARM-64 (aarch64) was added. The /man directory is now created early to avoid it to be created as root when calling make install. libdebugmalloc is now usable with the Bourne Shell. Several Bugs in the Bourne Shell fixed, thanks to Heiko Eißfeldt
2015-03-1616 Mar 2015 10:38 minor feature: The key SCCS programs admin, delta, get have been enhanced to support the upcomming project mode. The next step will enhance the program sccs(1) and give basic functions for the project mode. Smake fixed several bugs that are triggered when using unusual makefiles.
2015-03-0303 Mar 2015 11:30 minor feature: SCCS has been enhanced and is now close to a state that supports whole projects instead of just single files. cpp now implements new options -M -noinclude -xuc -xsc. Several bugs in smake have been fixed that could cause smake to dump core. mkisofs: isodump no longer needs a C99 compiler. libdbgmalloc now verifies the whole heap for corruption when the program exits.
2015-02-1212 Feb 2015 10:50 minor feature: Cpp no longer has static limits for macro string space and the number of macros. The install make rules for man pages and scripts have been corrected to avoid perpetual overwriting. SCCS admin -N no longer writes corrupt checksums if a previous file was uuencoded. "sccs -R clean" no longer prints many "file not found" messages. SCCS sccs has been restructured to prepare the upcomming project support. Several small fixes in the SCCS library to prevent buffer overflows.
2015-01-2929 Jan 2015 11:34 cleanup: SCCS was bumped to version 5.07. The SCCS get command now implements an experimental option -A that annotates the gotten lines with programmer names and dates. Diagnostic mkisofs helper programs like "isoinfo" first check for the existence of Rock Ridge date before trying to access that data.
2015-01-0126 Jan 2015 17:06 cleanup: Cdrtools documentation updated to mention sourceforge instead of berlios. Fixed a bug in star's pax CLI that caused spax -X to dump core. Thanks to Pavel Raiskup for reporting.
2014-09-1717 Sep 2014 13:50 cleanup: Fixed the support for "mkisofs -eltorito-platform Mac" to create correct El Torito entry. Added a workaround for a Linux libc bug in cdda2wav. Many fixes in the SCCS documentation. The SCCS man pages now document the previously undocmented NSE extensions. SCCS now by default automagically calls "help" for error messages that contain a SCCS error code applicable for "help". Fixed a bug in SCCSs urandom.c. Some small bug fixes in SCCS for SCCSv6 history files. The SCCS test suite now checks the code twice: once for SCCSv4 history files and another time for SCCSv6 history files.
