We are glad to announce a long-awaited update release of GNU gperf which
is updated to version 3 of the GPL.

GNU gperf is a perfect hash function generator.  For a given list of
strings, it produces a hash function and hash table, in form of C or C++
code, for looking up a value depending on the input string.  The hash
function is perfect, which means that the hash table has no collisions,
and the hash table lookup needs a single string comparison only.

Output from the gperf program is used to recognize reserved words in the
GNU C, GNU C++, and GNU Pascal compilers, as well as with the GNU indent

The full set of changes new to GNU gperf version 3.0.4 are:

* gperf is now licensed under the GPL version 3 or newer.
* The generated C code gives less warnings with gcc-4.2.x in c99 or
gnu99 mode.
* The usual assembly of small bugfixes.

Many thanks to Bruno Haible for his continued support and good hacking
on gperf.

For general documentation on the coding and usage standards this
distribution follows, see the GNU standards document available from
in a variety of formats.  Of particular interest are the sections
'Makefile Conventions', 'Configuration', and 'User Interfaces'.

Mail suggestions and bug reports to <address@hidden>.  When
reporting bugs, please include in the subject line the package name and
version  (output of 'gperf --version') for which you found a problem.
