The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution as test releases:

* pdfgrep-2.1.2-1

Pdfgrep is a tool to search text in PDF files. It works much
like grep, with one distinction: it operates on pages and not on lines.

* if no problems are reported by 4-Jun-2021 it will be promoted to stable
* report Cygwin bugs to cygwin@cygwin.com otherwise https://gitlab.com/pdfgrep/pdfgrep/-/issues

* [CYGWIN] patched build to use Cygwin gnu toolchain

* Version 2.1.2  [2018-11-19]
** Bugfix: Fix crash when compiled with hardened compiler flags (specifically -D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS)

* Version 2.1.1  [2018-05-22]
** Bugfix: Fix build with libunac support enabled

* Version 2.1.0  [2018-04-28]
** New option --page-range to limit search to a set of pages
** New option --file/-f to read patterns from a file
** New option --regexp/-e to specify multiple patterns (combined with OR).
** New options --files-with-matches/-l and --files-without-match/-L to only list filenames of files that contain or don't contain matches.
** Major manpage restructuring. It's now divided into subsections like the GNU grep's manpage.
** Bugfix: Actually stop searching after first match with -q

* Version 2.0.1  [2017-03-06]
** Bugfix: Fix --cache when used with recursive search

* Version 2.0  [2017-01-25]
** Incompatible change: --context/-C is now line based as opposed to character based and works just like grep
** Two new options from grep: -A/--after-context and -B/--before-context
** Lines with multiple matches are now printed only once
** Optional caching of pdf-text for faster operation (by Christian Dietrich) This adds a new dependency: libgcrypt
** Bash-completion improvements (by Rainer Müller)
** Bugfix: Fixed string search (-F) now works as advertised with multiple patterns
** Bugfix: Empty pages can now be matched with ^$
** Bugfix: The pattern ^ now matches only at the beginning of pages

** Various fixes for BSD support
