New minor version
Hello everyone, I'm announcing availability of GNU Screen v.4.8.0 Screen is a full-screen window manager that multiplexes a physical terminal between several processes, typically interactive shells. This release * Improves startup time by only polling for already open files to close * Fixes: - Fix for segfault if termcap doesn't have Km entry - Make screen exit code be 0 when checking --version - Fix potential memory corruption when using OSC 49 As last fix, fixes potential memory overwrite of quite big size (~768 bytes), and even though I'm not sure about potential exploitability of that issue, I highly recommend everyone to upgrade as soon as possible. This issue is present at least since v.4.2.0 (haven't checked earlier). Thanks to pippin who brought this to my attention. For full list of changes see https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/screen.git/log/?h=v.4.8.0 For more information about GNU screen visit: https://savannah.gnu.org/projects/screen/ Release is available for download at: https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/screen/ or your closest mirror (may have some delay) https://ftpmirror.gnu.org/screen/ Please report any bugs or regressions. Cheers! Amadeusz on behalf of GNU Screen Team
This seems to have a memory corruption fix in it too
