  • v12.1.1

    May 29, 2020

    🚀 ripgrep 12.1.1 is a patch release that fixes a couple small bugs. In
    🚀 particular, the ripgrep 12.1.0 release did not tag new releases for all of its
    in-tree dependencies. As a result, ripgrep built dependencies from crates.io
    🏗 would produce a different build than compiling ripgrep from source on the
    🚀 12.1.0 tag. Namely, some crates like grep-cli had unreleased changes.

    In case you haven't heard of it before, ripgrep is a line-oriented search
    tool that recursively searches your current directory for a regex pattern.
    0️⃣ By default, ripgrep will respect your gitignore rules and automatically skip
    hidden files/directories and binary files.

    🐛 Bug fixes:

    • BUG #1581:
      Corrects some egregious markup output in --help.
    • BUG #1591:
      📄 Mention the special $0 capture group in docs for the -r/--replace flag.
    • BUG #1602:
      🛠 Fix failing test resulting from out-of-sync dependencies.
  • v12.1.0

  • v12.0.1

    March 29, 2020

    🚀 ripgrep 12.0.1 is a small patch release that includes a minor bug fix relating
    to superfluous error messages when searching git repositories with sub-modules.
    🚀 This was a regression introduced in the 12.0.0 release.

    In case you haven't heard of it before, ripgrep is a line-oriented search
    tool that recursively searches your current directory for a regex pattern. By
    0️⃣ default, ripgrep will respect your .gitignore and automatically skip hidden
    files/directories and binary files.

    🐛 Bug fixes:

    • BUG #1520:
      Don't emit spurious error messages in git repositories with submodules.
  • v12.0.0

    March 15, 2020

    🚀 ripgrep 12 is a new major version release of ripgrep that contains many bug
    🛠 fixes, several important performance improvements and a few minor new features.

    In case you haven't heard of it before, ripgrep is a line-oriented search
    tool that recursively searches your current directory for a regex pattern. By
    0️⃣ default, ripgrep will respect your .gitignore and automatically skip hidden
    files/directories and binary files.

    🚀 In a near future release, I am hoping to add an
    indexing feature
    🏗 to ripgrep, which will dramatically speed up searching by building an index.
    Feedback would very much be appreciated, especially on the user experience
    which will be difficult to get right.

    🚀 This release has no known breaking changes.

    🗄 Deprecations:

    • 🗄 The --no-pcre2-unicode flag is deprecated. Instead, use the --no-unicode
      0️⃣ flag, which applies to both the default regex engine and PCRE2. For now,
      --no-pcre2-unicode and --pcre2-unicode are aliases to --no-unicode
      and --unicode, respectively. The --[no-]pcre2-unicode flags may be
      ✂ removed in a future release.
    • 🗄 The --auto-hybrid-regex flag is deprecated. Instead, use the new --engine
      flag with the auto value.

    🐎 Performance improvements:

    • PERF #1087:
      ripgrep is smarter when detected literals are whitespace.
    • PERF #1381:
      Directory traversal is sped up with speculative ignore-file existence checks.

    April 16, 2019

    🚀 ripgrep 11.0.1 is a new patch release that fixes a search regression introduced
    🚀 in the previous 11.0.0 release. In particular, ripgrep can enter an infinite
    loop for some search patterns when searching invalid UTF-8.

    🐛 Bug fixes:

    • BUG #1247:
      🛠 Fix search bug that can cause ripgrep to enter an infinite loop.
  • v11.0.0

    April 15, 2019

    🚀 ripgrep 11 is a new major version release of ripgrep that contains many bug 🛠 fixes, some performance improvements and a few feature enhancements. Notably, 👀 ripgrep's user experience for binary file filtering has been improved. See the [guide's new section on binary data](GUIDE.md#binary-data) for more details.

    🚀 This release also marks a change in ripgrep's versioning. Where as the previous 🔖 version was 0.10.0, this version is 11.0.0. Moving forward, ripgrep's major version will be increased a few times per year. ripgrep will continue to be conservative with respect to backwards compatibility, but may occasionally introduce breaking changes, which will always be documented in this CHANGELOG. 👀 See issue 1172 for a bit more detail on why this versioning change was made.

    👍 This release increases the minimum supported Rust version from 1.28.0 to 1.34.0.

    💥 BREAKING CHANGES:

    • ripgrep has tweaked its exit status codes to be more like GNU grep's. Namely, if a non-fatal error occurs during a search, then ripgrep will now always emit a 2 exit status code, regardless of whether a match is found or not. Previously, ripgrep would only emit a 2 exit status code for a catastrophic error (e.g., regex syntax error). One exception to this is if ripgrep is run with -q/--quiet. In that case, if an error occurs and a match is found, then ripgrep will exit with a 0 exit status code.
    • Supplying the -u/--unrestricted flag three times is now equivalent to supplying --no-ignore --hidden --binary. Previously, -uuu was equivalent to --no-ignore --hidden --text. The difference is that --binary disables binary file filtering without potentially dumping binary data into your terminal. That is, rg -uuu foo should now be equivalent to grep -r foo.
    • 🚚 The avx-accel feature of ripgrep has been removed since it is no longer necessary. All uses of AVX in ripgrep are now enabled automatically via runtime CPU feature detection. The simd-accel feature does remain available (only for enabling SIMD for transcoding), however, it does increase compilation times substantially at the moment.

    🐎 Performance improvements:

    🔋 Feature enhancements:

    • ➕ Added or improved file type filtering for Apache Thrift, ASP, Bazel, Brotli, BuildStream, bzip2, C, C++, Cython, gzip, Java, Make, Postscript, QML, Tex, XML, xz, zig and zstd.
    • FEATURE #855: Add --binary flag for disabling binary file filtering.

    • BUG #1121: Fix bug that was triggering Windows antimalware when using the --files flag.
    • BUG #1125, BUG #1159: ripgrep shouldn't panic for rg -h | rg and should emit correct exit status.
    • BUG #1144: Fixes a bug where line numbers could be wrong on big-endian machines.
    • BUG #1154: Windows files with "hidden" attribute are now treated as hidden.
    • BUG #1173: Fix handling of ** patterns in gitignore files.

    September 07, 2018

    🚀 This is a new minor version release of ripgrep that contains some major new 🔋 features, a huge number of bug fixes, and is the first release based on 🖨 libripgrep. The entirety of ripgrep's core search and printing code has been rewritten and generalized so that anyone can make use of it.

    👍 Major new features include PCRE2 support, multi-line search and a JSON output format.

    💥 BREAKING CHANGES:

    • The minimum version required to compile Rust has now changed to track the latest stable version of Rust. Patch releases will continue to compile with the same version of Rust as the previous patch release, but new minor versions will use the current stable version of the Rust compile as its minimum supported version.
    • The match semantics of -w/--word-regexp have changed slightly. They used to be \b(?:<your pattern>)\b, but now it's (?:^|\W)(?:<your pattern>)(?:$|\W). This matches the behavior of GNU grep and is believed to be closer to the intended semantics of the flag. See #389 for more details.

    🔋 Feature enhancements:

    • FEATURE #162: libripgrep is now a thing. The primary crate is grep.
    • FEATURE #176: Add -U/--multiline flag that permits matching over multiple lines.
    • FEATURE #188: Add -P/--pcre2 flag that gives support for look-around and backreferences.
    • FEATURE #244: Add --json flag that prints results in a JSON Lines format.
    • FEATURE #321: Add --one-file-system flag to skip directories on different file systems.
    • FEATURE #404: Add --sort and --sortr flag for more sorting. Deprecate --sort-files.
    • FEATURE #416: Add --crlf flag to permit $ to work with carriage returns on Windows.
    • FEATURE #917: The --trim flag strips prefix whitespace from all lines printed.
    • FEATURE #993: Add --null-data flag, which makes ripgrep use NUL as a line terminator.
    • FEATURE #997: The --passthru flag now works with the --replace flag.
    • FEATURE #1038-1: Add --line-buffered and --block-buffered for forcing a buffer strategy.
    • FEATURE #1038-2: Add --pre-glob for filtering files through the --pre flag.

    🐛 Bug fixes:

    • BUG #2: Searching with non-zero context can now use memory maps if appropriate.
    • BUG #200: ripgrep will now stop correctly when its output pipe is closed.
    • BUG #389: The -w/--word-regexp flag now works more intuitively.
    • BUG #643: Detection of readable stdin has improved on Windows.
    • BUG #441, BUG #690, BUG #980: Matching empty lines now works correctly in several corner cases.
    • BUG #764: Color escape sequences now coalesce, which reduces output size.
    • BUG #842: Add man page to binary Debian package.
    • BUG #922: ripgrep is now more robust with respect to memory maps failing.
    • BUG #937: Color escape sequences are no longer emitted for empty matches.
    • BUG #940: Context from the --passthru flag should not impact process exit status.
    • BUG #984: Fixes bug in ignore crate where first path was always treated as a symlink.
    • BUG #990: Read stderr asynchronously when running a process.
    • BUG #1013: Add compile time and runtime CPU features to --version output.
    • BUG #1028: Don't complete bare pattern after -f in zsh.
  • v0.9.0

    August 03, 2018

    🚀 This is a new minor version release of ripgrep that contains some minor new 🔋 features and a panoply of bug fixes.

    🚀 Releases provided on Github for x86_64 will now work on all target CPUs, and will also automatically take advantage of features found on modern CPUs (such as AVX2) for additional optimizations.

    👍 This release increases the minimum supported Rust version from 1.20.0 to 1.23.0.

    🚀 It is anticipated that the next release of ripgrep (0.10.0) will provide 👍 multi-line search support and a JSON output format.

    💥 BREAKING CHANGES:

    • When --count and --only-matching are provided simultaneously, the behavior of ripgrep is as if the --count-matches flag was given. That is, the total number of matches is reported, where there may be multiple matches per line. Previously, the behavior of ripgrep was to report the total number of matching lines. (Note that this behavior diverges from the behavior of GNU grep.)
    • 👍 Octal syntax is no longer supported. ripgrep previously accepted expressions like \1 as syntax for matching U+0001, but ripgrep will now report an error instead.
    • 🚚 The --line-number-width flag has been removed. Its functionality was not carefully considered with all ripgrep output formats. See #795 for more details.

    🔋 Feature enhancements:

    • ➕ Added or improved file type filtering for Android, Bazel, Fuchsia, Haskell, Java and Puppet.
    • FEATURE #411: Add a --stats flag, which emits aggregate statistics after search results.
    • FEATURE #646: Add a --no-ignore-messages flag, which suppresses parse errors from reading .ignore and .gitignore files.
    • FEATURE #702: Support \u{..} Unicode escape sequences.
    • FEATURE #812: Add -b/--byte-offset flag that shows the byte offset of each matching line.
    • FEATURE #814: Add --count-matches flag, which is like --count, but for each match.
    • FEATURE #880: Add a --no-column flag, which disables column numbers in the output.
    • FEATURE #898: Add support for lz4 when using the -z/--search-zip flag.
    • FEATURE #924: termcolor has moved to its own repository: https://github.com/BurntSushi/termcolor
    • FEATURE #934: Add a new flag, --no-ignore-global, that permits disabling global gitignores.
    • FEATURE #967: Rename --maxdepth to --max-depth for consistency. Keep --maxdepth for backwards compatibility.
    • FEATURE #978: Add a --pre option to filter inputs with an arbitrary program.
    • FEATURE fca9709d: Improve zsh completion.

    🐛 Bug fixes:

    • BUG #135: Release portable binaries that conditionally use SSSE3, AVX2, etc., at runtime.
    • BUG #268: Print descriptive error message when trying to use look-around or backreferences.
    • BUG #395: Show comprehensible error messages for regexes like \s*{.
    • BUG #526: Support backslash escapes in globs.
    • BUG #795: Fix problems with --line-number-width by removing it.
    • BUG #832: Clarify usage instructions for -f/--file flag.
    • BUG #835: Fix small performance regression while crawling very large directory trees.
    • BUG #851: Fix -S/--smart-case detection once and for all.
    • BUG #852: Be robust with respect to ENOMEM errors returned by mmap.
    • BUG #853: Upgrade grep crate to regex-syntax 0.6.0.
    • BUG #893: Improve support for git submodules.
    • BUG #900: When no patterns are given, ripgrep should never match anything.
    • BUG #907: ripgrep will now stop traversing after the first file when --quiet --files is used.
    • BUG #918: Don't skip tar archives when -z/--search-zip is used.
    • BUG #934: Don't respect gitignore files when searching outside git repositories.
    • BUG #948: Use exit code 2 to indicate error, and use exit code 1 to indicate no matches.
    • BUG #951: Add stdin example to ripgrep usage documentation.
    • BUG #955: Use buffered writing when not printing to a tty, which fixes a performance regression.
    • BUG #957: Improve the error message shown for --path separator / in some Windows shells.
    • BUG #964: Add a --no-fixed-strings flag to disable -F/--fixed-strings.
    • BUG #988: Fix a bug in the ignore crate that prevented the use of explicit ignore files after disabling all other ignore rules.
    • BUG #995: Respect $XDG_CONFIG_DIR/git/config for detecting core.excludesFile.
