7    Again mainly a bug-fix and tidying release, with only a couple of new features:
8    
9    1. It's possible now to compile PCRE so that it does not use recursive
10    function calls when matching. Instead it gets memory from the heap. This slows
11    things down, but may be necessary on systems with limited stacks.
12    
13    2. UTF-8 string checking has been tightened to reject overlong sequences and to
14    check that a starting offset points to the start of a character. Failure of the
15    latter returns a new error code: PCRE_ERROR_BADUTF8_OFFSET.
16    
17    3. PCRE can now be compiled for systems that use EBCDIC code.
