This is to announce grep-3.0, a stable release. Why so soon after 2.28? Because 2.28 introduced a pretty serious bug. Why call it 3.0? Mostly because I felt like it.
There have been 4 commits by 2 people in the 3 days since 2.28. Thanks to Paul Eggert for both of the nontrivial commits. See the NEWS below for a brief summary.
