Description

New minor version.

  • Noteworthy changes in release 3.1 (2017-07-02) [stable]
  • Improvements

grep '[0-9]' is now just as fast as grep ':digit:' when run in a multi-byte locale. Before, it was several times slower.

  • Changes in behavior

Context no longer excludes selected lines omitted because of -m. For example, 'grep "^" -m1 -A1' now outputs the first two input lines, not just the first line. This fixes a glitch that has been present since -m was added in grep 2.5.

The following changes affect only MS-Windows platforms. First, the --binary (-U) option now governs whether binary I/O is used, instead of a heuristic that was sometimes incorrect. Second, the --unix-byte-offsets (-u) option now has no effect on MS-Windows too.
