Hello hackers,

It is my great pleasure to announce the release of GLOBAL-4.8.7.

You can enjoy new gtags and htags whose efficiency have been greatly
improved by by Hideki Iwamoto.
Besides, you can refer to the hypertext generated by htags from your
tool using 'Htags Hyper-text Reference Kit' which is part of the package.

You can download it from <>.


New options:
* gtags: New --file file-list option added.
  Gtags(1) accept a file list specified by --file option.

        % find . -type f -print >/tmp/list
        % gtags --file=/tmp/list
        % find . -type f -print | gtags --file=-

* gtags: New --max-args option added.

Improvement of efficiency:
* Gtags was improved of performance by changing algorithm of
  incremental updating. Along with it, the verbose message was
  greatly changed.
* Gtags was improved of performance by decreasing the frequency
  of the parser invoking.
  Under the influence of it, the verbose message is not necessarily
  real-time. If you dislike this behavior, use the --max-args
  option of gtags. You can control the frequency of the invoking
  with the option. With --max-args=1, the program does the same
  behavior as older version.
* Htags was improved of performance by decreasing the frequency
  of the parser invoking.
* Htags was improved of performance by omiting flushing temporary
  files to the disk.

Fixed bugs:
* Htags didn't treat here document of PHP source code correctly.
* Htags didn't treat HTML part of PHP source code correctly.

Other facilities:
* Added 'Htags Hyper-text Reference Kit'.
  The hyper-text generated by htags(1) is available from external
  programs. This kit helps you to convert the path of the source
  file into the URL in the hyper-text.

* doc/global.txi: Added the usage of Doxygen using GLOBAL.
Version: GnuPG v1.0.7 (FreeBSD)
