   An update that solves 12 vulnerabilities and has one errata
   is now available.


   nasm was updated to version 2.14.02:

   * Fix crash due to multiple errors or warnings during the code generation
     pass if a list file is specified.
   * Create all system-defined macros defore processing command-line given
     preprocessing directives (-p, -d, -u, --pragma, --before).
   * If debugging is enabled, define a __DEBUG_FORMAT__ predefined macro. See
     section 4.11.7.
   * Fix an assert for the case in the obj format when a SEG operator refers
     to an EXTERN symbol declared further down in the code.
   * Fix a corner case in the floating-point code where a binary, octal or
     hexadecimal floating-point having at least 32, 11, or 8 mantissa digits
     could produce slightly incorrect results under very specific conditions.
   * Support -MD without a filename, for gcc compatibility. -MF can be used
     to set the dependencies output filename. See section 2.1.7.
   * Fix -E in combination with -MD. See section 2.1.21.
   * Fix missing errors on redefined labels; would cause convergence failure
     instead which is very slow and not easy to debug.
   * Duplicate definitions of the same label with the same value is now
     explicitly permitted (2.14 would allow it in some circumstances.)
   * Add the option --no-line to ignore %line directives in the source. See
     section 2.1.33 and section 4.10.1.
   * Changed -I option semantics by adding a trailing path separator
   * Fixed null dereference in corrupted invalid single line macros.
   * Fixed division by zero which may happen if source code is malformed.
   * Fixed out of bound access in processing of malformed segment override.
   * Fixed out of bound access in certain EQU parsing.
   * Fixed buffer underflow in float parsing.
   * Added SGX (Intel Software Guard Extensions) instructions.
   * Added +n syntax for multiple contiguous registers.
   * Fixed subsections_via_symbols for macho object format.
   * Added the --gprefix, --gpostfix, --lprefix, and --lpostfix command line
     options, to allow command line base symbol renaming. See section 2.1.28.
   * Allow label renaming to be specified by %pragma in addition to from the
     command line. See section 6.9.
   * Supported generic %pragma namespaces, output and debug. See section 6.10.
   * Added the --pragma command line option to inject a %pragma directive.
     See section 2.1.29.
   * Added the --before command line option to accept preprocess statement
     before input. See section 2.1.30.
   * Added AVX512 VBMI2 (Additional Bit Manipulation), VNNI (Vector Neural
     Network), BITALG (Bit Algorithm), and GFNI (Galois Field New
     Instruction) instructions.
   * Added the STATIC directive for local symbols that should be renamed
     using global-symbol rules. See section 6.8.
   * Allow a symbol to be defined as EXTERN and then later overridden as
     GLOBAL or COMMON. Furthermore, a symbol declared EXTERN and then defined
     will be treated as GLOBAL. See section 6.5.
   * The GLOBAL directive no longer is required to precede the definition of
     the symbol.
   * Support private_extern as macho specific extension to the GLOBAL
     directive. See section 7.8.5.
   * Updated UD0 encoding to match with the specification
   * Added the --limit-X command line option to set execution limits. See
     section 2.1.31.
   * Updated the Codeview version number to be aligned with MASM.
   * Added the --keep-all command line option to preserve output files. See
     section 2.1.32.
   * Added the --include command line option, an alias to -P (section 2.1.18).
   * Added the --help command line option as an alias to -h (section 3.1).
   * Added -W, -D, and -Q suffix aliases for RET instructions so the operand
     sizes of these instructions can be encoded without using o16, o32 or o64.

   New upstream version 2.13.03:

   * Add flags: AES, VAES, VPCLMULQDQ
   * Add VPCLMULQDQ instruction

   * Fix a case where negative value in TIMES directive causes panic instead
     of an error.
   * Fix the incorrect generation of VEX-encoded instruction when static mode
     decorators are specified on scalar instructions, losing the decorators
     as they require EVEX encoding.
   * Fix generation of dependency lists.
   * Fixes macro calls that have the wrong number of arguments (bsc#1073796,

   nasm was updated to version 2.13.01:

   * Fix incorrect output for some types of FAR or SEG references in the obj
     output format, and possibly other 16-bit output formats.
   * Fix the address in the list file for an instruction containing a TIMES
   * Fix error with TIMES used together with an instruction which can vary in
     size, e.g. JMP.
   * Fix breakage on some uses of the DZ pseudo-op.

   nasm was updated to version 2.13.00:

   * Support the official forms of the UD0 and UD1 instructions.
   * Allow self-segment-relative expressions in immediates and displacements
   * Handle a 64-bit origin in NDISASM.
   * NASM can now generate sparse output files for relevant output formats,
     if the underlying operating system supports them.
   * Fix a number of bugs related to AVX-512 decorators.
   * Fix the {z} decorator on AVX-512 VMOVDQ* instructions.
   * Add new warnings for certain dangerous constructs which never
     ought to have been allowed.
   * Fix the EVEX (AVX-512) versions of the VPBROADCAST, VPEXTR, and VPINSR
   * Support contracted forms of additional instructions.
   * Fix Codeview malformed compiler version record.
   * Add the CLWB and PCOMMIT instructions.
   * Add the %pragma preprocessor directive for soft-error directives.
   * Add the RDPID instruction.

   nasm was updated to version 2.12.02:

   * Fix preprocessor errors, especially %error and %warning, inside if
   * Fix relative relocations in 32-bit Mach-O.
   * More Codeview debug format fixes.
   * If the MASM PTR keyword is encountered, issue a warning. This is much
     more likely to indicate a MASM-ism encountered in NASM than it is a
     valid label.
   * This warning can be suppressed with -w-ptr, the [warning] directive (see
     section 2.1.24) or by the macro definition %idefine ptr %??.
   * When an error or a warning comes from the expansion of a multi-line
     macro, display the file and line numbers for the expanded macros.
   * Macros defined with .nolist do not get displayed.
   * Add macros ilog2fw() and ilog2cw() to the ifunc macro package. See
     section 5.4.1.

   nasm was updated to version 2.12.01:

   * Portability fixes for some platforms.
   * Fix error when not specifying a list file.
   * Correct the handling of macro-local labels in the Codeview debugging
   * Add CLZERO, MONITORX and MWAITX instructions.

   nasm was updated to version 2.12:

   * Major fixes to the macho backend (section 7.8); earlier versions would
     produce invalid symbols and relocations on a regular basis.
   * Support for thread-local storage in Mach-O.
   * Support for arbitrary sections in Mach-O.
   * Fix wrong negative size treated as a big positive value passed into
     backend causing NASM to crash.
   * Fix handling of zero-extending unsigned relocations, we have been
     printing wrong message and forgot to assign segment with predefined
     value before passing it into output format.
   * Fix potential write of oversized (with size greater than allowed in
     output format) relative relocations.
   * Portability fixes for building NASM with LLVM compiler.
   * Add support of Codeview version 8 (cv8) debug format for win32 and win64
     formats in the COFF backend, see section 7.5.3.
   * Allow 64-bit outputs in 16/32-bit only backends. Unsigned 64-bit
     relocations are zero-extended from 32-bits with a warning (suppressible
     via -w-zext-reloc); signed 64-bit relocations are an arror.
   * Line numbers in list files now correspond to the lines in the source
     files, instead of simply being sequential.

   nasm was updated to version 2.11.09:

   * Fix potential stack overwrite in macho32 backend.
   * Fix relocation records in macho64 backend.
   * Fix symbol lookup computation in macho64 backend.
   * Adjust .symtab and .rela.text sections alignments to 8 bytes in elf64
   * Fix section length computation in bin backend which leaded in incorrect
     relocation records.

   nasm was updated to version 2.11.08:

   * Fix section length computation in bin backend which leaded in incorrect
     relocation records.
   * Add a warning for numeric preprocessor definitions passed via command
     line which might have unexpected results otherwise.
   * Add ability to specify a module name record in rdoff linker
