Changes for version 1.88

  • BIG CHANGES
    • ack-standalone no longer exists. ack is now built from ack-base. What used to be called "ack-standalone" is now just "ack."
    • ack has a new plugin system, so you can build plugins to search whatever filetype you want. The plugin API is not yet set in stone.
    • The plugin system has not been optimized. ack is about 1/3rd slower than before.
  • ENHANCEMENTS
    • Added support for .hrl Erlang header files. Thanks, Richard Carlsson.
    • Added support for --rake files, which are also --ruby files.
  • FIXES
    • Fixed a bug where files ending in "Makefile" were mistakenly identified as Makefiles.
    • We now use the C<-p> file test operator to see if input is coming from a pipe, rather than than faking it with C<-t> and C<eof>. Thanks to Sitaram Chamarty.
  • ADDITIONS
    • Created a new etc/ directory and its first addition, a bash auto-completion file from Adam James.
  • DOCUMENTATION
    • Clarified the licensing information that hand-waved "under the same terms as Perl itself."
