GeSHi News

Here's where you can find out all the latest news about GeSHi - new releases, bug fixes and general errata.

GeSHi on GitHub
16/11/2013
Since this week GeSHi has migrated to use Git for version control of the source code. Parallel to this move the source code hosting has moved away from SourceForge to GitHub Thus the old code at SourceForge is there only for historical reasons and will no longer be updated.

You can find more details on this change in my blog.
GeSHi Website available encrypted
25/11/2012
I recently decided to make the GeSHi website available via SSL as a related project requires use of SSL anyway. Currently I'm not yet forcing SSL, but if you connected successfully via SSL once you'll use it automatically for the next six months due to HSTS.

The reason I'm currently not enforcing is that as the used Certification Authority CAcert is not in the trusted store of Mozilla and Internet Explorer (although the second is not relevant to me) you'd probably get alot of confusing warnings. Thus as of now you should make a conscious choice to use the encrypted version of this website. If you do and you get an error "Issuer not trusted" please check the Certificate or verify the Root Certificate of CAcert is installed properly.

This change is available for qbnz.com and geshi.org.
GeSHi 1.0.8.11 Released
19/08/2012
Again quite some time has passed but here it is: the new release of GeSHi with loads of new languages, some minor parser tweaks and fixes to existing language files. It adds 18 more languages thus making a total of 219 supported languages.

This release includes two minor bugfixes for the contrib scripts shipped with GeSHi which allowed for Remote File Inclusion and Cross Side Scripting. Thus if you have the contrib scripts installed it is strongly advised to update ASAP. Some more details can be seen in my blog or in the changelog.

As already noted previously there's a problem with PCRE not working properly with some large sources: As I'm not a developer of PCRE, but a mere user I ask you to report issues with PCRE crashes upstream to them, not me.

More information on current GeSHi developement can be found in the GeSHi corner of my blog.

GeSHi 1.0.8.10 Released
11/02/2011
After a quite long time of inactivity there is finally a new release of GeSHi with loads of new languages, some minor parser tweaks and fixes to existing language files. It adds 15 more languages thus making a total of 201 supported languages.

This release does introduce some minor changes into the parser improving the way numbers are highlighted and extending support for common number formats. Additionally it fixes many issues with highlighting that people noticed in the various language files. Some more details can be seen in my blog or in the changelog.

Also given a recent attack on the SourceForge.net systems I decided to take action and finally do what I already planned for quite some time: starting with 1.0.8.10 ALL (including old) releases of GeSHi will be signed. For details on how to check the used GnuPG signatures please refer to my blog. It is furthermore highly recommended to check the signatures

As already noted previously there's a problem with PCRE not working properly with some large sources: As I'm not a developer of PCRE, but a mere user I ask you to report issues with PCRE bugs upstream to them, not me.

GeSHi 1.0.8.8 Released
23/05/2010
Again there have been some important changes in this new release. It contains alot of bugfixes over earlier releases and adds 15 more languages thus making a total of 177 supported languages.

This release doesn't introduce any changes into the parser but basically fixes many issues with highlighting that people noticed in the language files,

As already noted previously there's a problem with PCRE not working properly with some large sources: As I'm not a developer of PCRE, but a mere user I ask you to report issues with PCRE bugs upstream to them, not me. But at least: GeSHi now get's PCRE syntax right. when highlighting.

GeSHi 1.0.8.7 Released
14/02/2010
Again there have been some important changes in this new release. It contains alot of bugfixes over earlier releases and adds 5 more languages thus making a total of 162 supported languages.

Yet again this release doesn't introduce that many changes into the parser but basically fixes some smaller issues with highlighting that people noticed affecting string highlighting, Pascal-style range operators and other minor issues that need to be taken care on the parser level.

But the vast majority of changes affects the language files bundled with GeSHi that hold loads of changes and improvements over previous releases.

As already noted previously there's a problem with PCRE not working properly with some large sources: As I'm not a developer of PCRE, but a mere user I ask you to report issues with PCRE bugs upstream to them, not me.

GeSHi 1.0.8.6 Released
26/12/2009
Again there have been some important changes in this new release. It contains alot of bugfixes over earlier releases and adds 11 more languages thus making a total of 157 supported languages.

This time the release mostly consisted mostly of bugfixes and improvements to language files. The only parser update has been a rework of number support to make it become a bit more stable in cases where numbers are part of a keyword URL - and thus invalid HTML has been produced. The root cause is inherent, but this update should fix most cases that caused trouble in the past.

As already noted previously there's a problem with PCRE not working properly with some large sources: As I'm not a developer of PCRE, but a mere user I ask you to report issues with PCRE bugs upstream to them, not me.

GeSHi 1.0.8.5 Released
10/09/2009
Again there have been some important changes in this new release. It contains alot of bugfixes over earlier releases and adds 7 more languages thus making a total of 146 supported languages.

Besides the many bugfixes in the language files there are some formal bugfixes with the parser where certain conditions could lead to invalid or improper code being generated.

As already noted previously there's a problem with PCRE not working properly with some large sources: As I'm not a developer of PCRE, but a mere user I ask you to report issues with PCRE bugs upstream to them, not me.

GeSHi 1.0.8.4 Released
23/05/2009
Again time has passed and there have been some more or less important changes in this new release. It contains alot of bugfixes over earlier releases and adds 6 more languages thus making a total of 138 supported languages.

Besides the many bugfixes in the language files there is one quite important change language file developers should take care of: GeSHi now highlights keywords BEFORE highlighting regexps thus allowing languages like LaTeX to link known keywords while still highlighting unknown commands via regexp. This feature comes with a small price: You have to take care of how you link your keywords and how your regexps operate to not interfere with the already highlighted keywords.

Also I noticed a problem with PCRE not working properly with some large sources: As I'm not a developer of PCRE, but a mere user I ask you to report issues with PCRE bugs upstream to them, not me.
