  - GNU awk 5.1.1
    * asort and asorti now allow FUNCTAB and SYMTAB as the first
      argument if a second destination array is supplied. Similarly,
      using either array as the second argument is now a fatal error.
      Additionally, using either array as the destination for split(),
      match(), etc. also causes a fatal error.
    * The new -I/--trace option prints a trace of the byte codes as
      they are executed.
    * A number of subtle bugs relating to MPFR mode that caused
      differences between regular operation and MPFR mode have been
    * The API now handles MPFR/GMP values slightly differently,
      requiring different memory management for those values.
    * $0 and the fields are now cleared before starting a BEGINFILE
    * Handling of Infinity and NaN values has been improved
    * The "no effect" lint warnings have been fixed up and now behave
      more sanely.
    * The behavior of strongly-typed regexp constants when passed as
      the third argument to sub() or gsub() has been clarified in the
      code and in the manual.
    * Similar to item #4 above, division by zero is now fatal in MPFR
      mode, as it is in regular mode.

  - remove update-alternatives support, as on linux systems GNU software
      (i.e. gawk in this case) is usually considered the default implementation.
  - use %make macros
* Thu Feb 04 2021 Ludwig Nussel <>
  - fix update-alternatives usage. Needs to be in %postun according to
* Mon Dec 14 2020 Ludwig Nussel <>
  - prepare usrmerge (boo#1029961)
  - remove use of obsolete %install_info
* Wed Apr 15 2020 Paolo Stivanin <>
  - Update to 5.1.0:
    * The major version of the API is bumped to 3, something that should
      have happened at the 5.0.0 release but didn't.
    * A number of memory leak issues have been fixed.
    * Infrastructure upgrades: Bison 3.5.4, Texinfo 6.7, Gettext 0.20.1,
      Automake 1.16.2.
    * The indexing in the manual has been thoroughly revised, in particular
      making use of the facilities in Texinfo 6.7.  That version (or newer)
      must be used to format the manual.
    * MSYS2 is now supported out-of-the-box by configure.
    * Several bugs have been fixed.  See the ChangeLog for details.
  - Removed gawk-inplace-namespace-part3.patch
  - Removed gawk-inplace-namespace-part1.patch
  - Removed gawk-inplace-namespace-part2.patch
* Tue Oct 22 2019 Neal Gompa <>
  - Fix typo in Summary
  - Stop overriding %_libexecdir with %_libdir
* Tue Oct 22 2019 Igor Gnatenko <>
  - Fix the backward compatibility of the inplace extension:
    * Add gawk-inplace-namespace-part1.patch
    * Add gawk-inplace-namespace-part2.patch
    * Add gawk-inplace-namespace-part3.patch
  - Run autoreconf as part of the build process
* Tue Aug 27 2019 Jan Engelhardt <>
  - Upgrade descriptions.
* Mon Aug 12 2019 Andreas Stieger <>
  - GNU awk 5.0.1:
    * Sandbox mode now disallows assigning new filename values in
      ARGV that were not there when gawk was invoked
    * The new argument "no-ext" to --lint disables "XXX is a gawk
      extension" lint warnings
  - possibly incompatible changes in 5.0.0:
    * Add support for the POSIX standard %a and %A printf formats
    * Replace regex routines with those from GNULIB
    * PROCINFO["platform"] yields a string indicating the platform for
      which gawk was compiled.
    * Writing to elements of SYMTAB that are not variable names now
      causes a fatal error
    * New comment handling in the pretty-printer
    * Namespaces have been implemented. Files included with -i, read
      with -f, and command line program segments must all be self-
      contained syntactic units.
    * now uses the locale settings for ignoring case in single byte
      locales, instead of hardwiring in Latin-1
