ack 2.08 has been released. ack 2.06 was released for about 15 minutes until I realized that it was incorrectly versioned, so I deleted it.
As always, thanks for the help from everyone who's contributed, especially those named in the change log below.
Here are the changes:
2.08 Thu Aug 22 23:11:45 CDT 2013
ack now ignores CMake's build/cache directories by default. Thanks,
Add shebang matching for --lua files.
Add documentation for --ackrc.
Add Elixir filetype.
Add --cathy option. Thanks to Joe McMahon.
Add some helpful debugging tips when an invalid option is found.
Thanks to Charles Lee.
Ignore PDF files by default, because Perl will detect them as text.
Ignore .gif, .jpg, .jpeg and .png files. They won't normally be
selected, but this is an optimization so that ack doesn't have to
open them to know.
Ack's colorizing of output would get confused with multiple sets
of parentheses. This has been fixed. (Issue #276)
Ack would get confused when trying to colorize the output in
DOS-format files. This has been fixed. (Issue #145)

Colored output is now supported and on by default on Windows.
