Log Message:
Release 8.32 30-November-2012
This release fixes a number of bugs, but also has some new features. These are
the highlights:
.  There is now support for 32-bit character strings and UTF-32. Like the
   16-bit support, this is done by compiling a separate 32-bit library.

.  \X now matches a Unicode extended grapheme cluster.

.  Case-independent matching of Unicode characters that have more than one
   "other case" now makes all three (or more) characters equivalent. This
   applies, for example, to Greek Sigma, which has two lowercase versions.

.  Unicode character properties are updated to Unicode 6.2.0.

.  The EBCDIC support, which had decayed, has had a spring clean.

.  A number of JIT optimizations have been added, which give faster JIT
   execution speed. In addition, a new direct interface to JIT execution is
   available. This bypasses some of the sanity checks of pcre_exec() to give a
   noticeable speed-up.

.  A number of issues in pcregrep have been fixed, making it more compatible
   with GNU grep. In particular, --exclude and --include (and variants) apply
   to all files now, not just those obtained from scanning a directory
   recursively. In Windows environments, the default action for directories is
   now "skip" instead of "read" (which provokes an error).

.  If the --only-matching (-o) option in pcregrep is specified multiple
   times, each one causes appropriate output. For example, -o1 -o2 outputs the
   substrings matched by the 1st and 2nd capturing parentheses. A separating
   string can be specified by --om-separator (default empty).

.  When PCRE is built via Autotools using a version of gcc that has the
   "visibility" feature, it is used to hide internal library functions that are
   not part of the public API.
