> 1.  Fixed some typos in the markup of the man pages, and wrote a script
> that checks for such things as part of the documentation building process.
> 2.  On a big-endian 64-bit system, pcregrep did not correctly process the
>      --match-limit and --recursion-limit options (added for 8.11). In
>      particular, this made one of the standard tests fail. (The integer
> value
>      went into the wrong half of a long int.)
> 3.  If the --colour option was given to pcregrep with -v (invert match), it
>      did strange things, either producing crazy output, or crashing. It
> should,
>      of course, ignore a request for colour when reporting lines that do
> not match.
> 4.  Another pcregrep bug caused similar problems if --colour was
> specified with
>      -M (multiline) and the pattern match finished with a line ending.
> 5.  In pcregrep, when a pattern that ended with a literal newline
> sequence was
>      matched in multiline mode, the following line was shown as part of the
>      match. This seems wrong, so I have changed it.
> 6.  Another pcregrep bug in multiline mode, when --colour was specified,
> caused
>      the check for further matches in the same line (so they could be
> coloured)
>      to overrun the end of the current line. If another match was found,
> it was
>      incorrectly shown (and then shown again when found in the next line).
> 7.  If pcregrep was compiled under Windows, there was a reference to the
>      function pcregrep_exit() before it was defined. I am assuming this was
>      the cause of the "error C2371: 'pcregrep_exit' : redefinition;"
> that was
>      reported by a user. I've moved the definition above the reference.
