Source-highlight depends on the Boost regex library
( so you need to install this library (boost
libraries are usually shipped with most distributions).

Source-highlight can also generate cross references; in order to do this
it relies on GNU Ctags,

Version 2.11

   * optimized the procedure for finding the best matching expression
   * improved boost regex library search in configure script
   * fixed regexp element in javascript lang definition
* highlight types used in variable/parameter declarations in C++ and Java
   * fixed language def files for properties and desktop files
   * newline chars can be inserted (and ignored) in regular expression
   * --line-range (highlight only specified lines of an input file,
     --range-context to specify the number of surrounding context lines,
     --range-separator the separator line between ranges)
   * language definition for Xorg configuration files
   * language definition for Scala (thanks to Dean Wampler)
   * bash completion file for source-highlight (thanks to Tiziano Muller)
