- 5.8.1 | 2012-06-05


- Bugs fixed

- Debug output removed

Due to an oversight, release 5.8 rlog included code to write
debugging output to stderr for invocations using the `-d' option
and a date range (e.g., `rlog -d 2010<2012').

- Criteria for avoiding read-only checks refined

For "make check", some test cases are inhibited if the user
running the test is not effectively blocked from writing a
purportedly read-only file, such as when "make check" is run by
the super user, or for certain (weird) NFS situations.

Previously, to determine this condition, we considered only the
operating system type, a very crude (and incomplete) proxy.
Now, we explicitly check with a shell sequence comprising the
umask(1) and test(1) commands, plus output-redirection.

- Regression in `-zLT' handling

On a 64-bit x86 system, RCS 5.8 introduced a regression whereby:

rlog -zLT -d>2011-05-04

would select the correct entry but display its date always with
default (01) month and day, i.e., YYYY-01-01. This is now fixed
(see also tests/t320).

- Regression in `ci -d -T' handling

RCS 5.8 introduced a regression whereby:

ci -l -d -T FILE

would set the mtime of RCS/FILE,v (the comma-v file) to the
epoch. This is now fixed (see also tests/t810).

- Use `diff --label' instead of `diff -L'

Previously, RCS used GNU diff's `-L' option. According to Paul
Eggert (a GNU diffutils maintainer):

That option has been undocumented since diffutils 2.8
(released in March 2002) and the option is intended to
be replaced sometime soon with a different meaning.

Now, RCS uses `diff --label', thus immune to the planned change.

- Miscellaneous changes
- Make help extraction noisy (on failure)
- Silence some compiler warnings
- Increase coverage of "make check"

- Documentation improvements

- Manpage rcsintro(1) dropped

This manpage is redundant, and (arguably) should not have been
in section 1 in the first place.

- Use "Invoking COMMAND" instead of "COMMAND" as node names

This makes it easier for `info --usage COMMAND' to DTRT, and
makes GNU (info "(standards) Manual Structure Details") happy.

- explicitly UTF-8

This is to prepare for a (future) GNU Texinfo release that
renders @code in a more pretty way when the encoding is UTF-8.
If you're reading this (from the future) with such a Texinfo at
hand, feel free to regenerate the docs in doc/ prior to install.

- CVS is not GNU

Previously, we incorrectly said "GNU CVS", succumbing to a
common misunderstanding. Now we know better.

- TAGS file no longer distributed

To create, configure normally and do "make TAGS".

- New configure script option `--enable-coverage'

Specifying `--enable-coverage' causes `_Exit' to be an alias for
`exit' and CFLAGS to append `--coverage' if the compiler is GCC.
This is needed because the coverage machinery writes the .gcda
files only on `exit'.

This option is for maintainers; most people can ignore it.

- Portability improvements
- Use more gnulib modules
- Use portable Makefile subst-ref variable syntax
- Use portable shell command-output interpolation syntax
- Maintenance tools upgraded
- GNU Automake 1.12
- GNU Autoconf 2.69
- gnulib-tool (GNU gnulib 2012-06-03 16:29:00) 0.0.7432-f6c24-modified
