Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

Release Notes

ripgrep 11.0.2 is a new patch release that fixes a few bugs, including a
performance regression and a matching bug when using the -F/--fixed-strings

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
default, ripgrep will respect your .gitignore and automatically skip hidden
files/directories and binary files.

  • FEATURE #1293:
    Added --glob-case-insensitive flag that makes --glob behave as --iglob.

Bug fixes:

  • BUG #1246:
    Add translations to README, starting with an unofficial Chinese translation.
  • BUG #1259:
    Fix bug where the last byte of a -f file was stripped if it wasn't a \
  • BUG #1261:
    Document that no error is reported when searching for \
    with -P/--pcre2.
  • BUG #1284:
    Mention .ignore and .rgignore more prominently in the README.
  • BUG #1292:
    Fix bug where --with-filename was sometimes enabled incorrectly.
  • BUG #1268:
    Fix major performance regression in GitHub x86_64-linux binary release.
  • BUG #1302:
    Show better error messages when a non-existent preprocessor command is given.
  • BUG #1334:
    Fix match regression with -F flag when patterns contain meta characters.
