Secure Locate - Release 3.1 (stable)
------------------------------------
3.1  - Its been out there, and the only bug reported in the 2 months since the
       last beta release was a 3 line minor fix. So 3.1 is the new official,
       stable release.
     - The list of user defined database paths were not being parsed
       correctly. Thanks to Vincent Lefevre for finding the bug and fixing it.

3.0  - The environment variable LOCATE_PATH was not being used properly. It
beta   will now be used the same as in v2.7.
r3   - slocate was returning non zero for -h, --help, -V and --version. It now
       returns zero.
     - PRUNEFS was being ignored in /etc/updatedb.conf
     - Added documentation describing how /etc/updatedb.conf is used and what
       is supported to the README and the slocate.1 and updatedb.1 man pages.

3.0  - Added fix to compensate for default unsigned chars on PPC.
beta - Fixed segfault due to 0 length char array. oops.
r2   - Fixed a bug where dangling links were ignored.

3.0 - A complete rewrite. The idea being that when I first wrote this I was
beta  still a bit of a newbie. This version has a better design and will be
r1    easier to debug and maintain. I have also received too many database
      corruption emails and I wanted to redesign the encode/decode routines
      to make sure that this was fixed.
    - This version should have the same functionality of v2.7. Free time is
      rare so I havn't had any to add any of the features people have been
      asking for. Feature patches are welcome!

2.7 - Wanderlei Antonio Cavassin <cavassin@conectiva.com.br> fixed a segfault
      when a regular expression error occurs.
    - Fixed the --regexp= option. It was not working properly.
    - Added a minor patch added to the Debian version of slocate.
    - Fix printf-is-a-macro issue (gcc 3.0).  Patch courtesy of 
      rbradetich@uswest.net.
    - Fixed a segfault when -r regex is used with an extra search string.

2.6 - Fixed some segfaults that occured with random data to -d, -o,
      and -r options.
    - Added a patch to make it work on Solaris
    - Added more path permission checking so that even if a file is
      readable in a directory that is not readable, slocate will not
      disclose the file to the user.

2.5 - Really fixed the heap corruption bug.
    - Fixed a bug that caused slocate to segfault when path lengths are
      too large.
    - Made slocate not assign the 'slocate' group to a database if the 
      UID is not 0.
    - Added alot of error checking (ie, all mallocs, fchdir, etc).
    - Autoconfed.

2.4 - if /etc/mtab was a symlink to /proc/mounts, load_file() would not
      read /proc/mounts because /proc/mounts' filesize is 0.  Changed
      load_file to fix this bug.

2.3 - Optimized the decode_db() function.  This speeds up searching up to
      40%. Also did some general clean up of some of the code.

2.2 - Fixed a segfault.  If the environment variable LOCATE_PATH had an
      invalid slocate.db file path, slocate could segfault.  Proper checking
      now takes place to fix this.

2.1 - Fixed a segfault (very silly bug) which occured when the 
      /etc/updatedb.conf from the old GNU Locate was missing.  Secure Lcoate
      can still use this file so this is why it was checking for it.
     - Luca Berra <bluca@vodka.it> added case insensitive searching with the
       -i option.  He also optimized the code to make searching a faster.
     - Hans-Juergen Godau <godau@wi-inf.uni-essen.de> fixed a segfault when
       searching through more than one database.

2.0 - Converted the original recursive file tree walking code over to the
      newly supported fts() function.  This is the main reason for pushing
      the version to 2.0.  This is much more stable and has fixed a few
      bugs that didn't allow the whole file system to be scanned.  I took
      the fts() code right from glibc so that it may be used on libc5
      systems.
    - Added File System Exclusion option. ( -f "fstype1,fstype2,..." ).
      Now you can exclude NFS, proc, ext2, etc without listing each path.
    - If 'updatedb' is used to update the database, GNU Locate's original
      '/etc/updatedb.conf' will be used to exclude file systems and paths.
      When using 'slocate' to update the database, the '-c' option may now
      be used to parse the '/etc/updatedb.conf' file.
      *NOTE* - This only works under Linux.

1.6 - Increased performance when updating the database thanx to Alexander
      V. Lukyanov.
    - Matt added some tweaks to make it easier to install on FreeBSD 3.1.
    - Fixed a bug which didn't allow you to use ./database when using the
      -o option

1.5 - Added Regular Expression searching (-r and --regexp options)
    - Added an option to specify the location of where to create the database
      when indexing a filesystem. Thanks to Ulf Betlehem <flu@iki.fi> 
    - Fixed a bug which caused slocate to exit when a directory could not be
      opened. Thanks to Jim Dougharty  <james.dougharty@sabre.com>.
    - Multiple search strings are now possible, and the decode_db() function
      will now use access() instead of opendir to check is a directory is
      readable thanks to Glenn Maynard <glennm@mediaone.net>.
    - You can now limit the amount of results shown using the -n option.
    - A symlink from updatedb to slocate when executed will create a new
      database starting at the root filesystem '/'.

1.4 - Added globbing support.  ( *,?,[^], )
    - Made slocate a little more backward compatible to GNU locate for linux.
    - Added a verbose option to view which files are being indexed.
    - Removed some silly debug code that cause slocate to just exit if
      the -e option was used.
    - Sean Mcnulty <lazy@ccf.rutgers.edu> fixed a bug which caused the decode
      function to fail.
    - As pointed out by a few people, rindex is not as portable as strrchr so
      those were changed over.
    - Added Quiet Mode.  Error messages are suppressed.
    - Fixed a bug which allowed users to view files in non readable 
       directories.

1.3 - Optimized some more silly code.
    - Fixed a segfault when running slocate -u when the /var/lib/slocate
      directory does not exist.

1.2 - Changed the decode code to make slocate up to 4 times faster.
    - Optimized other code to make more efficient.

1.1 - With suggestions from Marc Schaefer <schaefer@alphanet.ch>, some
      optimization was done. Instead of storeing all the file permissions
      in the db file, just do a lstat() on any files that match the
      search string.  This makes it a bit quicker, and the db file is
      also smaller.
      
    - Cleaned up the getopts area. Doesn't core anymore when bogus options
      are given. (*blush* :)
      
    - Checks UID when creating DB. Must be root, (or if you modify main.c
      you can change it to something else.) at the moment. This may change
      when there become a conf file in the future.

1.0 First release.
