Hello hackers,

It is my great pleasure to announce the release of GLOBAL-6.5.

GLOBAL is a source code tagging system that works the same way across
diverse environments, for example, emacs, vi, less, bash, web browser
and etc. It is useful for hacking a large project.

New facilities:
o global: New -N (--nearness=[start]) option.
        Nearness sort method is available for the output of tag search command.
        The result of nearness sort is concatenation of the followings ([1]-[n])
        in this order. The default of 'start' is the current directory.
        [1] Output of local search in the 'start' directory.
        [2] Output of local search in the parent directory except for [1].
        [3] Output of local search in the grandparent directory except for [1]-[2].
        (repeat until the project root directory)
        [n] Output of local search in the project root directory except for [1]-[n-1].
        In each directory, they are sorted by alphabetical order.
o global: Now the --literal option also works with the tag search command,
        -P command and -I command as well as the -g command.

o htags: The -c and -x option of htags(1) were still available in the help
  message, even though they had actually been removed. Now, these options
  are removed completely.
o gtags (PHP): Against the following source code, gtags(1) aborted with a message
  'short of memory'. Now it works.
o gtags (C++): Gtags(1) didn't recognize the shift operator. Now it works.
        |class const_mod<uint64_t(1) << 48>
        $ gtags
        gtags: failed to parse template [+1 ./a.hh].
o gtags (C, C++): Gtags(1) couldn't pick up 'E2' as a definition. Now it works.
        |enum my_enum2
        |    E2
