remctl 3.18

remctl is a simple RPC mechanism using Kerberos GSS-API authentication (or SSH authentication).

The primary change in this release, and the reason for the release, is to add support for PCRE2, the latest version of the Perl-Compatible Regular Expression library, since PCRE1 is now deprecated.

This release also improves some documentation, marks the allocation functions in the C client library with deallocation functions for GCC 11, and fixes some issues with the Python and Ruby bindings that were spotted by Ken Dreyer, as well as the normal update of portability support.

I still do plan to move the language bindings into separate packages, since this will make it easier to upload them to their per-language module repositories and that, in turn, will make them easier to use, but this version doesn't have those changes. I wanted to flush the portability changes and PCRE update out first before starting that project.

You can get the latest version from the remctl distribution page.
