TABLES 3.15 Release Notes

June 2012

A few bug fixes have been implemented for the code in the tables library; namely,

* A check on the length of the file name has been added, to prevent accessing
    memory outside the buffer containing the file name.
* Buffer sizes SZ_FTTYPE, SZ_FTFORM and SZ_FTUNIT were changed from 70 to 79,
    and tbfdef.x was modified to explicitly add one to these sizes when allocating
    memory for strings of these lengths.
* Character-string columns were not being defined correctly. They had only
    one character, and spurious TSCALi and TZEROi keywords were being added.
