* Major changes in release 4.6.0, 2015-12-28
** Stable Release
This is the first stable release since findutils-4.4.2. The entries
below in this file detail the changes that have occurred since release
4.3.13 (which is the common ancestor of this release and
findutils-4.4.0). This release includes all the bug fixes
incorporated into the 4.4.x release series, since those bug fixes were
also applied to the 4.5.x release series.
** Summary of Changes
The most significant changes since the 4.4.2 release are:
1. Some backward-incompatible changes have been made to find:
- egrep regular expressions now work like GNU grep -E
- Minor changes to the way nanoseconds fields are printed
- find -perm +mode is now fully POSIX compliant (if you want the old
behaviour use -perm /mode).
- find -perm +numeric_mode is not supported any more. This syntax is
unspecified by POSIX. The prior functionality continues to be
available with -perm /numeric_mode. For more details see Savannah
bug #38474.
2. Some backward-incompatible changes have been made to xargs:
- if the child exits with status 126 or 127, xargs exits with status
123.
3. There are also a large number of bugfixes, performance enhancements
and documentation improvements, as detailed below.
4. The "oldfind" binary is no longer installed.
