Changelog for 1.7.0 version



1.7.0 - 2016-11-08
  - General changes/additions
    * allow multiple transforms handling the same file as long as they
      also use the same lens (reported by Rich Jones)
    * fix a use-after-free in recursive lenses when spans are
      enabled (Issue #397)
    * fix an illegal memory access during put that can be triggered by a
      lens of the form 'del ... | l1 . l2' when the put has to jump
      branches in the union (Issue #398)
    * a large number of fixes based on Coverity scanning and running with
      gcc's address sanitizer. None of the issues uncovered would have lead
      to particularly significant leaks (they were all on the order 100-200
      bytes) and often hard to trigger, but we now have proof that at least
      while running tests there are no leaks at all.
      See https://github.com/hercules-team/augeas/pull/405 for details.
    * The type checker now checks regexes that are involved in
      expressions. For example, it used to be possible to write 'let rx =
      /a/ | /b)/' and not get an error from the syntax checker, even though
      'let rx = /b)/' would result in an error. Such constructs are now
      checked properly. This new check might lead to errors in existing
      lenses, requiring that they be fixed.
  - Lens changes/additions
    * Cron_User: New lens to handle user crontab files in /var/spool/cron
    * Csv: fix failure to load lens on OpenBSD (Issue #396)

  - General changes/additions
    * augtool: add --load-file option, and corresponding load-file command
      to load individual files based on the autoload information in lenses
    * path expressions: numbers in path expressions are now 64 bit integers
      rather than whatever the C compiler decided 'int' would be

      than dumping all help text

  - API changes

    * aug_get: make sure we set *value to NULL, even if the provided path is
      invalid (Issue #372)
    * aug_rm: fix segfault when deleting a tree and one of its ancestors

1.4.0 - 2015-05-22
  - General changes/additions
    * add a aug_escape_name call to sanitize strings for use in path
      expressions. There are a few characters that are special in path
      expressions. This function makes it possible to have them all escaped
      so that the resulting string can be used in a path expression and is
      guaranteed to only match a node with exactly that name
    * paths generated by Augeas are now properly escaped so that, e.g., the
      strings returned by aug_match can always be fed to aug_get, even if
      they contain special characters
    * augtool: correctly record history when reading commands from a file
      and then switching to interactive mode (Robert Drake)
    * augtool: new command 'errors' that pretty-prints /augeas//error

    * Nginx: significantly reworked, now parses entire Nginx stock
             config successfully (Issue #179)
    * Pagekite: more fine-grained control of service_on entries; instead of
                'source' and 'destination', parse into protocol, kitename,
                backend_host, backend_port, and secret (Michael Pimmer)
                (incompatible change)
    * Passwd: support nis [+-]username syntax (Borislav Stoichkov); fix

    * Shadow: allow NIS entries (Borislav Stoichkov)
    * Shellvars: case: support ;; on same line with multiple commands
                 (Kaarle Ritvanen); make insertion at the beginning of a
                 file that starts with blank lines work; the new lens will
                 remove blank lines from the beginning of a file as soon as
                 lines are added to or removed from it (GH issue #202);
