Get it at http://www.skeeve.com/gawk/gawk-3.1.76.tar.gz. It reflects
the current state of the Savannah Git repo, at least as of the moment.

I've been working mostly on documentation, but the code has also been
getting some attention.

Here are the most recent additions to the NEWS file:

21. Arrays of arrays added. See the doc.

22. Per the GNU Coding Standards, dynamic extensions must now define
a global symbol indicating that they are GPL-compatible. See
the documentation and example extensions.
THIS CHANGES BEHAVIOR!!!!

23. In POSIX mode, string comparisons use strcoll/wcscoll.
THIS CHANGES BEHAVIOR!!!!

24. The option for raw sockets was removed, since it was never implemented.

25. If not in POSIX mode, gawk turns ranges of the form [d-h] into
[defgh] before compiling a regexp. Maybe this will stop all the
questions about [a-z] matching uppercase letters.
THIS CHANGES BEHAVIOR!!!!

26. PROCINFO["strftime"] now holds the default format for strftime().

27. Updated to latest infrastructure: Autoconf 2.68, Automake 1.11.1,
Gettext 0.18.1, Bison 2.4.3.

Happy Holidays All!

Enjoy,

Arnold
