Fedora Update Notification

Name        : pcre
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 8.33
Release     : 6.fc20
URL         : http://www.pcre.org/
Summary     : Perl-compatible regular expression library
Description :
Perl-compatible regular expression library.
PCRE has its own native API, but a set of "wrapper" functions that are based on
the POSIX API are also supplied in the library libpcreposix. Note that this
just provides a POSIX calling interface to PCRE: the regular expressions
themselves still follow Perl syntax and semantics. The header file
for the POSIX-style functions is called pcreposix.h.

Update Information:

This releases fixes a wrong match on empty-matching possessive zero-repeat groups in interpreted mode, a compiler crash for zero-repeated groups with a recursive back reference, and memory leaks in pcregrep.
