weltling commented Oct 14, 2017

The goal is to switch to PCRE2 in the core. Things done so far

  • patched for PCRE2 support in ext/pcre and dependent core exts
  • hidden pcre_cache_entry, motivation - there's a lot to be changed in the future that needs flexibility
  • pcre_extra is gone
  • some signatures changed
  • GINIT/GSHUTDOWN is used instead of RINIT/RSHUTDOWN for initializations, might change in the future
  • RINIT is still used for check whether the context initialization is ok

See for the PCRE2 API details.
