Changes for version 2.12

  • SECURITY FIXES
    • This verison of ack prevents the --pager, --regex and --output options from being used from project-level ackrc files. It is possible to execute malicious code with these options, and we want to prevent the security risk of acking through a potentially malicious codebase, such as one downloaded from an Internet site or checked out from a code repository.
    • The --pager, --regex and --output options may still be used from the global /etc/ackrc, your own private ~/.ackrc, the ACK_OPTIONS environment variable, and of course from the command line.
  • ENHANCEMENTS
    • Now ignores Eclipse .metadata directory. Thanks, Steffen Jaeckel.
  • INTERNALS
    • Removed the Git revision tracking in the --version.
