cd683a2001-07-27Johan Sundström 
ffd9ed2002-12-05Martin Nilsson o rsif rsif can now work recursively in a file structure if given the flag -r or --recursive. Example: pike -x rsif -r 7.4 7.6

670abd2003-01-12Martin Stjernholm o The automatic garbage collection strategy is configurable The garbage collector can be configured to take both the amount of
60a3942003-04-28Martin Stjernholm  garbage and the cpu time spent in the gc into account. Automatic gc runs can also be disabled in critical regions. See the function Pike.gc_parameters. o sort() is stable Unlike previous releases, sort() will keep the original order between elements that are equal. This was not implemented as a separate function since it could be done with virtually no extra overhead.

a594a12003-07-23Martin Nilsson o sort() is portable Sort is now locale and platform independent. In other words, strings are now compared only according to the unicode value of every character. o Reworked codec The codec for serialization of Pike data types has been updated and has a significally improved successrate at encoding modules.
